He stated he was too "careful" and failed to show how "strong" he was, comments that seemed to be echoed not only by ourselves but also fans who seemed to feel the performance was far from Iwasa's best.
When asked about Luis Nery, who failed to make weight for a fight on the same card, Iwasa wasn't holding back and stated Nery should "leave boxing" and that he doesn't "recognise" the Mexican as a boxer. Interestingly if Nery was to officially move up in weight Iwasa could be a potential target for the controversial Mexican.
There is no set plan on when Iwasa will next fight, but he and his team did state their next defense would be a mandatory defense, so will likely come against fellow southpaw TJ Doheny (18-0, 13) later in the year.
