Unbeaten southpaw prospect OPBF#3 Kazuki Nakajima (9-0-1, 8 KOs), 122, caught up with taller speedster Kenta Tonomura (7-4, 3 KOs), 122, dropping him twice prior to the referee’s intervention at 2:39 of the third round in a scheduled eight on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan. The victor’s manager Hideyuki Ohashi said, “I wish to have Nakajima get a 118-pound title shot either at the Japanese national belt or the OPBF crown—next year.”
