Unbeaten Japanese southpaw Junto Nakatani (21-0, 16 KOs), 112, impressively acquired the vacant WBO flyweight belt as he took the initiative from the outset, effectively battered WBO#1 Giemel Magramo (24-2, 20 KOs), 111.75, and finally finished him with a barrage of punches at 2:10 of the eighth round on Friday in Tokyo, Japan.

Nakatani, an elongated southpaw, had the Filipino slowing down with persistent body attacks and dropped him with furious combinations to the face and the belly for the count.

Promoter: Teiken Promotions.

  • Magramo was, pretty much, a little bull. He made no adjustments and just came straight forward the entire time. However, Nakatani looked very good. He’ll only be 23 by the next time he fights and he obviously has quite a ways to go, but I’m already loving his combination punching, his accuracy, his commitment to the body and just his activity in general. Angel Acosta would be a great next fight imo.
