This past Monday saw two cards of note in Asia. One of those was in Yemen whilst the other, a much more interesting one, was in Japan.
We'll start by looking at the Japanese show, a show dubbed "Fil Japan Boxing Festival Vol. III".
The Headline fight in Japan saw Masayuki Ito (12-0-1, 4) stopping Filipino rival Jeffrey Arienza (9-2-1, 4) in the 10th and final round to claim the WBC Youth Lightweight title. The fight, which appeared to be heading to a clear decision in favour of Ito, who was 88-82 up, going into the final round though the 2012 All Japan Rookie of the year managed to close the show and claim his first title.
In the chief support bout Japanese model-turn-boxer Tomomi Takano (3-0, 2) scored her third victory courtesy of a stoppage over a debuting Filipino opponent. This was one of two female bouts on the card with the other seeing Japanese based Filipino Honey Mae Bermoy (5-2, 5), AKA Honey Katsumata, stopping Japan's previously unbeaten Saki Yamada (6-1-1, 2).
The most notable result came in the second highest profile male bout on the show as former Japanese Light Flyweight challenger Yuki Chinen (14-1, 7) stopped Filipino Ryan Bito (22-12-3, 8) in just 88 seconds. Chinen was expected to win though no one would have expected him to stop Bito in such an impressive fashion.
In an all Filipino bout Jovylito Aligarbes (9-2, 3), AKA Jovy Katsumata, took a narrow decision over the more experienced Monico Laurente (23-9, 5).
On the other card, in Yemen, the fast rising Ali Raymi (14-0, 14) recorded his 14th straight opening round victory as he stopped Asam Dolbhante (4-1, 1) in just 94 seconds. This was one of two bouts on the show with the other seeing Muhana Hajaji (1-0) out pointing Sultan Haydi (0-1) over 4 rounds.
