The talented Okada went on the chase early in the bout and landed a hard right hard after about 2 and a half minutes, which dropped Morales for the 10 count with an official time of 2 minutes 40. Prior to the stoppage there had been little connected from the Filipino, who looked out of his depth from very early on.
After the bout Okada seemed to apologise for the bout being so short with the fighter admitting he had planned to go longer in to the bout.
The plan now is for Okada to attend the upcoming IBF general meeting and try to get himself an eliminator. He did however seem to suggest that whilst that was the plan he wasn't against fighting for any version of a world title that's notable as he his highly ranked by all 4 title bodies, and has got options out there with the WBA, WBC and WBO.
