Earlier today in Tokyo fight fans saw an interesting, but small, card. Headlining that card was WBC Atomweight champion Momo Koseki, however she wasn't the only fighter of note on the card.
Another was the promising and unbeaten Takeshi Inoue (8-0-1, 4) [井上 岳志] who easily over-came Korean puncher Chan Ho Lee (5-2, 4), who retired at the end of the 2nd round after having been given a beating. Lee came to fight, but was used as a bit of a human punch bag and was lucky to survive the second round, but was stopped the following round.
One other fighter of note on the show was the really exciting Kazuto Takesako (5-0, 5) [竹迫 司登] who quickly stopped Korean fighter Kyung Joon Ahn (6-3-1, 5) in 3 rounds. The heavy handed Takesako, who had only done 7 rounds in his previous 4 bouts, was in trouble early and Ahn had certainly travelled to win, but Takesako saw out the early storm, fired back and in round 3 he hurt the Korean. Soon afterwards a stoppage was forced, but Takesako will know that he had to walk through fire here to continue his unbeaten run.
