In the most notable bout of the day experienced Thai Oleydong Sithsamerchai (49-1-1,17), the former WBC Minimumweight champion, successfully defended his WBC International Super Flyweight title thanks to a disqualification of Japanese challenger Hyobu Nakagama (16-11-3, 11).
The was the second meeting between Sithsamerchai and Nakagama after Sithsamerchai had defeated him via a wide decision back in December 2011 and although the winner again this time it's fair to say that Oleydong will be feeling the effects of several low blows he was forced to take that eventually lead to the disqualification.
As well as the title bout in Thailand there was a full card of action though most of it was Muay Thai as opposed to boxing unfortunately.
There was also action in Japan at the legendary Korakuen Hall in Tokyo. This show, put on by reason promotions, featured 8 bouts.
The show in Tokyo featured 3 bouts scheduled for 8 rounds with the clearest of those being an eye catching 8th round KO for Masayoshi Kotake (9-7-1, 5) who took out Kazuki Hayashi (7-4-1, 6) with around 2 minutes of their bout left.
The other 2 bouts scheduled for 8 round were incredibly close with Masaaki Serie (24-5, 10) scoring a hotly debated majority decision over Yuki Ozawa (10-2, 2) and Shamgar Koichi (16-5-1, 9) taking a split technical decision over Moon Hyun Yun (14-4-1, 2).
Both of the decision results were incredibly close and had they gone the other way not many would have complained.
The shows sole 6 round contest saw Takumi Koyama (7-2, 5) stopping Yusuke Tsukada (5-4, 3) in the 5th round. For all the limitations of Koyama one thing is certain, he can genuinely bang.
Also on the show were several bouts scheduled for 4 rounds. These included the debut of the promising Yugo Ueda (1-0, 1) who stopped fellow debutant Shunta Terai (0-1) in the 3rd round.
Other bouts over the shorter distance saw victories for Naoto Moriya (4-0, 1) who out pointed Masajiro Honda (4-3, 3); Yuma Kudo (2-0) who took a decision over Tatsuji Kakumoto (1-3) and Sho Kimura (1-1) who recorded his first victory thanks to a decision over Akira Kokubo (1-3).
Unfortunately in the US there was a loss for Sri Lankan Nuwan Jayakody (1-2) who dropped a decision to the promising Bryant Cruz (6-0, 5).
