On this day...
2017-Nawaphon Por Chockchai (36-0-1, 28) Vs Juan Hernandez Navarrete (33-2, 24)
The then unbeaten Thai fighter Nawaphon Por Chockchai took on Mexican foe Juan Hernandez Navarrete in a bout for the WBC Flyweight title. Sadly for Nawaphon he was made to look slow, sluggish and very poor before being stopped by the Mexican in 3 rounds. It should be noted that the Thai has since moved up through the weights, and has recently moved to Bantamweight, and seemed to validate that he was struggling to make Flyweight. Incidentally Navarette would be stripped of the title before his first defense, due to failing to make weight.
2016-Shinsuke Yamanaka (24-0-2, 17) vs Liborio Solis (23-3-1, 10)
One of the most entertaining of Shinsuke Yamanaka's many WBC Bantamweight title defenses saw him trading knockdowns with Liborio Solis, in what was a really tense and exciting contest. Both were dropped twice in the bout, with Yamanaka being put down twice in round 3, but in the end it was a clear decision for Yamanaka, who began to boxing to strengths as the bout went on.
2016-Yu Kimura (18-2-1, 3) Vs Ganigan Lopez (31-6, 18)
On the same show as Yamana's win over Solis there was a really notable second world title bout, that saw Mexican veteran Ganigan Lopez defeat Japan's Yu Kimura over 12 rounds to become the new WBC Light Flyweight title. The bout seemed like a clear win for Lopez though one judge managed to have the bout even. This wouldn't just end Kimura's world title reign but also his career, and he retired following this loss.
1971-Hiroshi Kobayashi (60-8-4, 10) vs Ricardo Arredondo (55-4, 39)
One of the true legends of Japanese boxing, Hiroshi Kobayashi, successfully defended the WBA Super Featherweight title against Mexican challenger Ricardo Arredondo. This bout would be a close but unanimous decision for Kobayashi, though he would lose the belt in his next defense, being stopped by Alfredo Marcano.
