The show opened up with two decisions over the 4 round distance. These saw Shogo Yonenaga (2-1, 1) over coming Daichi Ushiki (1-5, 1) and a draw in a bout between Hyuma Fujioka (3-2-1) and Toru Kudo (3-2-2. 1), a bout that looked incredibly close on paper.
The first stoppage of the show came in the sole 6 round bout as Hiroyuki Sagehashi (7-5-2, 1) scored his first career stoppage taking out Mitsuhisa Hayashi (4-4, 3). This victory helped Sagehashi extend his winning run to 4 straight fights, significantly the longest winning run of his career so far.
In the first of the 8 round bouts Nobuyuki Shindo (14-4-2, 5) took out Thai debutant Itthipol Sithnaruepol (0-1) in just 2 rounds in what was little more than a confidence builder for Shindo. This was Shindo's second successive bout against a debuting Thai following a decision loss last year to Moon Hyun Yun.
It didn't get better for Thai's in the most notable bout n the card as former world title challenger Takuya Kogawa (22-2, 13) despatched Petchkrapee Sithsaithong (0-6) in the 3rd round.
The remaining 8 round bouts saw two upsets, giving the card a slightly unpredictable edge. The first of those saw veteran Kazuyoshi Kumano (26-13, 6), returning to the ring after almost 20 months out, defeating the much younger and once touted Yusuke Konno (7-2, 3) via a majority decision.
Yhe upset by Kumanp however was over-shadowed by the absolite shock of Yusaku Ishikawa (4-4) over-coming Kaname Tabei (10-7-2, 7). Sure Tabei's record isn't anything outstanding but he was still very much expected to pass the Ishikawa test here.
