Yesterday we saw one such bout as school girl boxer Fuka Komura (5-0, 2) [小村 楓香] advanced to a title fight thanks to a clear 6 round decision win against the tough but out matched Sarasa Ichimura (3-6-1) [一村更紗].
To her credit Ichimura came to fight, and looked to press the action early, but was unable to ever shake Komura who landed some solid counters of her own, one of which dropped Ichimura to secure a 10-8 round for Komura.
Komura controlled much of the bout after that knockdown, but she was given a rough ride in the final round as Ichimura put everything into trying to stop Komura, something she lacked the power to do.
After 6 rounds the decision of the judges was never in doubt, with Komura taking the win with scores of 59-55, twice, and 58-55. With the win she has set up a showdown with Jun Yabuki (8-0, 4) [矢吹純], for the Japanese Atomweight title, with the date for that bout yet to be announced.
