Today Kano looked impressive, as he desmantled a Thai foe in just 81 seconds.
The Japanese youngster looked sharp, fast and accurate as he wen tto work immediately and dropped the Thai with a left hand to the body. The visitor, in pain, took the 10 count to give Kano his first win of the year.
The plan now seems ot be for Kano to move towards a Japanese title fight, and it sounds like the fighter and his team will chase a national title bout before the end of 2018.
Another youngster picking up a much needed win on this show was Futa Akizuki (11-2, 9) [秋月 楓大], who also stopped a Thai foe. Akizuki has lost his last 2 bouts, and clearly needed a confidence building win, which he got with a 4th round KO. The Japanese youngster looked sharp and talented but the visitor showed his toughness, getting up from several knockdowns. Despite that toughness the visitor finally took the 10 count after the third knockdown.
