Earlier today Japanese fight fans saw the Japanese debut of teenager Kazusa Arai (2-1, 2) [新井 一颯], as he took on Tetsuro Ohashi (3-0, 1) [大橋 哲朗]. Sadly for Arai it wasn't a welcome return home, with the youngster suffering a decision defeat at the hands of Ohashi.
Although listed by some sources as making his professional debut Arai had actually fought twice in Thailand, scoring two KO's and looking like a promising fighter in the process. Today however he looked like a child against a mn with Ohashi being too strong and too good for the baby faced youngster.
Ohash made the most of his southpaw stance, moved smartly and landed his southpaw jab at wil, whilst Arai struggled to get to grips with the angles and accuracy of Ohashi.
Sadly for Ohashi he was only awarded a share of a round on one card, being shut out on the other two with scored beign 40-36, twice, and 40-37 all in favour of Ohashi, who scored his third win of the year and proved that he has some talent to develop on going forward.
