It was the champion's first bout since she last October when she defended her title again Satomi Nishimura, scoring a 10th round KO in that bout to record her 3rd successive stoppage.
Following the bout Miyao said she was open to fighting a unification bout with long reigning WBC champion Momo Koseki (20-2-1, 7). The bout would be the first ever unification bout in the division and would see Koseki being put in with a really credible challenger for the first time since she over-came Saemi Hanagata back in 2012.
Since beating Hanagata we've seen Koseki score 6 more defenses of her title to extend her reign to 15 defences. Sadly those last 6 defenses have come against some very questionable opposition, including Aisah Alico just a few week ago.
A battle between Koseki and Miyao would be great and a real test of two long reigning champions. We know Koseki has got people now chasing her, including Louisa Hawton and WBC #1 ranked contender Nora Cardoza, though Koseki has already repelled Cardoza back in November 2013, though a bout with Miyao would be the pick of the available match ups.
