Earlier today Japanese prospect Ryusei Kawaura (1-0, 1) [川浦 龍生] made his professional debut, and did so in impressive fashion with a 2nd round TKO win against Thai visitor Thepyothin Sithdabnid (0-4).
From the off the debutant looked several levels above the Thai and quickly found his range, and control, of the bout.
Kawaura used his feints well and landed some really crisp shots, with his righthook and left straight both looking tremendous and destructive. The managed to see out the opening round, some how, but wasn't so lucky in round 2 as Kawaura set out to score a stoppage, and did just that, whilst proving he was far too good for the visitor.
On paper the win doesn't look the most impressive, especially with this being the third recorded stoppage of the Thai's career, but it was a perfect debut to start a career which has a lot of promise and some are tipping Kawaura to be a future star in, or around, the Super Flyweight division.
*Thai's record also report as 11-4-1 (3)
