Japanese youngster Takuma Inoue (3-0, 1) scored his first stoppage victory earlier today as he blasted out Thailand's Chanachai Sor Siamchai (0-1). The bout, fought on the un-televised portion of today's Ohashi supercard, was a significant step down in class for the exceptional 18 year old though it was a chance to keep him active ahead of a possible title fight at the end of the year.
Takuma, who debuted against the Japanese ranked Tatsuya Fukuhara, has advanced to the world rankings already courtesy of a fantastic victory 5 months ago over Fahlan Sakkreerin Jr and is expected to be fast tracked similar to his brother, Naoya Inoue who fights later today, and Kosei Tanaka (also 3-0, 1) who will be fighting for the OPBF Minimumweight title in October.
Although no footage has yet been made available we have been informed that Takuma looked "amazing".
