December 31st 2011-Prefectural Gymnasium, Osaka, Osaka, Japan
Kazuto Ioka (8-0, 5) Vs Yodngoen Tor Chalermchai (8-0, 4)
The December 31st shows in Japan have become a staple in the boxing calendar though it's worth remembering that they only really began in 2011. On that day TV Tokyo broadcast Takashi Uchiyama Vs Jorge Solis whilst rival channel TBS aired the first of Kazuto Ioka's New Years Eve bouts. This bout saw Ioka take on unbeaten Thai Yodngoen Tor Chalermchai in what looked a good match on paper for the then WBC Minimumweight champion.
