The heavy handed Yada, who was actually born in Hitakata, was facing off with a Thai visitor and made light work of his foe, stopping him in 2 rounds.
Yada's power was evident from the off, and he dropped his man before the end of the opening round, showing just how much of a threat his shots had. To the Thai's credit he did get back up, and saw out the round, but it was clear that he wasn't going to be able to match the "Terminator of Naniwa" in the power or skills departments.
The second round was thoroughly one-sided for as long as it lasted, with the Thai being dropped multiple times before taking the 10 count at 1:39 of the round.
The bout was never expected to be competitive, and it's no surprise that Yada scored such a quick win, but it's aim was partly to keep him ticking over ahead of his October 21st bout with the exciting Moon Hyun Yun (18-4-3, 3) [尹文鉉], in what will be a Japanese title eliminator, and will see the winner becoming the mandatory challenger for the title in 2018. That bout will be much tougher for Yada than this one was, but ticking over and staying busy with this win will certainly have done him no harm, especially given how straight forward the win was.
