This past week in Japan we saw two female bouts as Katsumata Promotions put on their excellent "Fil Japan Boxing Festival Vol. III".
The first first of those bouts saw Japanese based Filipino teenager Honey Mae Bermoy (5-2, 5), aka Honey Katsumata, stopping the previously unbeaten Japanese fighter Saki Yamada (6-1-1, 2). Yamada, who went in to the bout ranked highly by the OPBF, was unable to cope with the power of Honey.
In the second bout the highly popular Tomomi Takano (3-0, 2) recorded her second stoppage win over coming a Filipino debutant. Tomomi used her height and reach well to establish her jab and it didn't take long for the bout to become incredibly one sided. This was over quickly with the model-boxer again showing some natural talent and some actual promise.
