A determined looking Tameda, who had already agreed to join the Ohashi gym after this fight, set the pace from the off andpressed Kosaka whilst looking to land his heavy shots. Kosaka, to his credit, moved well and looked to counter Tameda, but really never had the power to get Tameda's respect or the speed of foot to really stay away from the power puncher.
In round 2 Tameda's pressure began to tell, and it was hard to beleive that he was entering the bout on the back of two losses. By the end of the round it was clear that Kosaka was feeling the weight of the shots and was breaking down as Tameda landed heavy blows to head and body. The shots from Tameda continued to rain down in round 3 with Kosaka eventually being dropped late in round. At the end of the round Kosaka's team pulled him from the bout, giving Tameda the win, and resulting in celebrations from Tameda's team, which included Hideyuki Ohashi among others.
