Unbeaten Japanese hope Ayumi Goto (5-0, 4) [後藤あゆみ] extended her unbeaten run earlier today as she over-came a Thai foe in 4 rounds and opened the door to a title bout in the near future.
The Watanabe gym fighter set out her stall early trying to use the jab to establish the range and tempo of the contest. It wasn't too difficult early on, though the Thai did show some bravery and swung back, at times catching the local favourite.
As the fight went on Goto began to have more success against the Thai, who's name is unknown at the moment, and in round 4 Goto began to land at will, with her 1-2's landing clean. With clean shots landing the Thai backed up and was eventually forced as Goto unleashed a flurry punctuated by a spiteful straight left hand.
Following the win Goto mad it clear she was wanting a bout with OPBF Super Bantamweight champion Tomomi Takano, who will herself be in the ring in October. If Goto gets that bout she will be full of confidence and could well surprise Takano, who hasn't really hidden the fact she's not a huge fan of competing as a fighter this year.
