Whilst a number of days in February have lacked things of note that certainly can't be said for February 19th which has given us numerous notable bouts, including several big Japanese female cards.
2015-Naoko Shibata vs Saemi Hanagata
Momo Koseki v Aisah Alico
A female double header in Tokyo saw Naoko Shibata and Momo Koseki retaining their titles in all Japanese world title bouts at the Korakuen Hall.
2012-Ayaka Miyao Vs Masae Akitaya
Mari Ando Vs Maria del Refugio Jimenez Cruz
Etsuko Tada Vs Maria Salinas
Another female title double header came in 2012 and, again, saw ladies stealing the show, this time in Osaka, with Tada and Ando retaining their WBA titles and Miyao becoming the WBA Atomweight mandatory challenger.
2000-Artur Grigorian vs Sandro Casamonica
Uzbek fighter Artur Grigorian held the WBO Lightweight title for close to 8 years, from 1996 to 2004. During that time he made 17 defenses, the 10th of which came n this day in 2000, when he beat Italian challenger Sandro Casamonica in 9 rounds. The talented Grigorian dropped Sasamonica in the 8th round before scoring the stoppage the following round.
1989-Sung Kil Moon vs Chiaki Kobayashi
The then WBA Bantamweight champion Sung Kil Moon made his second defense as he stopped Chiaki Kobayashi in the 5th round. Moon would lose the title 5 months later, in a return bout with Khaokor Galaxy, who he had beaten for the title in 1988. Moon would later prove to be a phenomenal fighter at Super Flyweight, winning the WBC Super Flyweight title in 1990 and defending it 9 times. Sadly this would be Kobayashi's final career bout, with the Japanese fighter never returning to the ring.
