That fighter was Light Middleweight contender Yuto Shimizu (11-2-2, 4) who easily deposed Indonesian foe Maxi Nahak (8-11-3, 2)*, who came to fight but was no match for Shimizu.
Nahak came out with an aggressive mentality but was simply playing into the hands of Shimizu who used his sharp jab and accurate right hand to counter the visitor, who had no plan B.
The aggressiveness saw Nahak's defensive being picked apart and a solid left from Shimizu dropped him in round 5. That was the start of the end with Nahak being stopped the following round, with another hard left hook.
Shimizu will now be hoping to face the winner of the December 27th bout between defending champion Yuki Nonaka and upcoming challenger Koshimaru Saito.
*Boxrec are missing bouts from Nahak's record.
