Kyoguchi barely keeps WBA 108lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

WBA light flyweight super champion Hiroto Kyoguchi (14-0, 9 KOs), 108, Japan, barely kept his belt as he withstood see-saw exchanges in the close range in earlier rounds, fortunately floored top ranked compatriot Tetsuya Hisada (34-10-2, 20 KOs), 107.75, midway in the ninth and pounded out a close but unanimous decision (115-112, 116-111, 117-110) over twelve hard-fought rounds on Tuesday in Osaka, Japan.

  • I wouldn’t call this close. Certainly if a person wins only by two rounds, or a point on two of the score cards, perhaps than. But I would call this a respectable decision. the winner lost five on one scorecard, and four and three only the other. Perhaps after eight rounds, the fight was really in the balance.
