The main event, an IBF Pan Pacific Flyweight title bout saw former Olympian Amnat Ruenroeng (9-0, 3) claim the belt as he went 12 rounds for the second time in his short professional career. Ruenroeng scored a clear shut out of Filipino challenger Julius Alcos (20-11, 3) who really was thoroughly outclassed.
The card also featured victories for teenager Fahlan Sakkreerin Jr (18-2, 12) who scored an 8 round decision over Madit Sada (4-10, 1), Rusalee Samor (20-4-2, 9) who stopped Louis Loemoli (4-8-1, 2) midway into their 8 round contest and Patomsith Pathompothong (2-0, 1) who took out Nampetch Photonggym (0-1) inside a round.
Since getting those results we've also received the results from both the Japan card at Korakuen Hall and the Australian card which involved several promising Asian fighters.
In Japan Filipino (GAB) Lightweight champion Rey Labao (24-4, 16) managed to upset Japan's Taisho Ozawa (21-8-2, 13) via a 5th round TKO in the main event. The card also saw an unexpected victory for Middleweight Hikaru Nishida (7-6-1, 2) who surprisingly stopped former Japanese and OPBF Middleweight title challenger Fukutaro Ujiie (17-12-1, 11). Whilst Ujiie has now been stopped 6 times it was the first stoppage by Nishida since stopping his debut opponent in May 2008.
The card also featured 4 decision victories. These saw Ganbare Shota (10-3-1, 2) claim an 8 round decision over Ryutaro Taira (7-3-1, 3); Yosuke Kawano (7-2-1, 3) who also took an 8 round victory over Wataru Ikenouchi (6-9-1, 1); Yamato Kikuchi (2-3-2) who took a 4 round victory over Ayame Osada (2-6) and the unbeaten Yuji Awata (2-0, 1) who also claimed a 4 round decision over Ryo Sugimoto (1-5).
In Australia we saw 2 victories for Australian based Asian fighters. The most surprising of those saw Indonesian born Aswin Cabuy (14-38-3, 7) score a TKO over Hungarian born Aussie Mario Karacsony (3-3-1, 2). A victory for Cabuy has become a rare thing with only 1 in his previous 15 bouts, though admittedly this is a bit of an unusual victory as Karacsony suffered a leg injury.
The other victory in Australia was much more expected as the talented Taiwan born Aussie Yao Yi Ma (12-1, 8) scored his 10th successive victory and blasted out Filipino Joel Dela Cruz (17-17-2, 7) in 2 rounds. Yao Yi Ma is looking like one of those fighters that fight fans should be keeping an eye on although he'll not be pushed we'd not be surprised to see him moving up a level or two,
It wasn't all good for Asian's fighting on international soil however as Timur Shailezov (16-7-1, 3) suffered a controversial split decision loss to Luis Yanez. Although Shailezov was dropped he fought back bravely and genuinely could have won the bout.
