Juiki, 22, floored his older opponent, 35, with solid shots twice in the opening session, and took the initiative in round two. The third witnessed Tatsuyoshi Jr. batter him from all angles and badly hurt him with the referee Tanaka’s well-timed intervention. His strict father said, “Juiki has become better little by little, though still green.” Juiki may aim at the WBC youth 122-pound belt in the near future.

JBC super welterweight champ Nobuyuki Shindo (20-4-2, 8 KOs), 154, recovered from an injury, returned to ring warfare and barely kept his national title as he battled to a split draw (96-94, 95-96, 95-95) with interim titlist Akinori Watanabe (37-7-1, 31 KOs), also 154, over ten give-and-take rounds.

Shindo will be obliged to meet JBC mandatory challenger Hironobu Matsunaga first with the winner to face Watanabe in accordance with the decision of the JPBA (Japan Professional Boxing Association).
