Arnel Tinampay (19-15-1, 6) Vs Yosuke Kirima (15-2-2, 11)
In recent times we've become aware that Filipino fighters can have some very deceiving records. This has been shown with fighters like Rey Loreto, Sonny Boy Jaro and Rey Megrino. When a Filipino fighter has a poor record we cannot write them off. Another fighter who proves this is Arnel Tinampay who has become a bogey man to Japanese fighters in recent years. For some fans their first chance to see Tinampay in action was his bout against former Japanese Light Middleweight title challenger Yosuke Kirima. The first 15 seconds of this bout, on the under-card of the Chris John Vs Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo fight, certainly should have made Japanese fighters aware of Tinampay and his under-rated power.
