Having mid week fights in the East is far from a rarity but have two world title fights, on the same day in the East is pretty rare. Thankfully however that's exactly what we had today with a title fight in Thailand and a title fight in Japan.
The action, of course, kicked off in Thailand courtesy of Channel 7 with their first bout taking place at around 15:00 local time.
The first televised bout saw an early ending with one of the fighters stopping the other in the second round thanks to a very painful body shot. Unfortunately we've not yet got the names of these two fighters but the loser certainly felt the after effects of a well placed straight to the body that had him rolling in agony as the referee waved it off.
Following the "Channel 7" opener we had the first world title fight of the day as Japanese hard man Nobuo Nashiro (19-6-1, 13) battled Thai veteran Denkaosan Kaovichit (62-3-1, 26) for the WBA "interim" Super Flyweight title.
The Thai great got off to an excellent start using his speed and combinations to bag many of the early rounds before Nashiro came back strongly in the second half of the fight and forced Kaovichit into survival mode down for the final two rounds. With the points in the bag however Kaovichit had done enough to take the world title and possibly end the career of the always hard working Nashiro.
Following the world title bout there was another televised contest though unfortunately we again failed to get the names of the fighters that were in action.
Although Nashiro was unsuccessful in his world title bout at Super Flyweight things were different in his homeland as Daiki Kameda (29-3, 18) over-came Mexican Rodrigo Guerrero (19-5-1, 12) and claimed the IBF title at 115lbs. This victory for Daiki sees him joining brothers Koki and Tomoki to create history as the first time 3 brothers have held world titles at the same time.
Although the fight was, on the most part, less than exciting it did have it's moments of excitement late on as Daiki got dragged into a fight, notably in round 10 when both men went hell for leather.
On the same card the hard hitting Akinori Watanabe (29-4, 25) took an 8 round decision over Filipino Jaypee Ignacio (9-16, 2) in the co feature.
The rest of the Japanese card saw Ryo Kosaka (7-2-1, 3) out pointing Riichi Kawase (3-5-2, 1) over 6 rounds, Takahiro Morisaki (1-0, 1) blasting out Masashi Katayama (0-1) in a battle of debutants and Taichi Sugimori (1-1) out pointing Hironori Miyake (1-1, 1).
