March 3rd 2014- Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan
Ayaka Miyao (16-5-1, 1) Vs Buangern Onesongchaigym (10-4-1, 1)
The Atomweight division is boxing's lightest division with a divisional limit of 102lbs. Although it's the smallest division, and a division that is only open to women, it is a division that tends to feature a lot of action and is almost entirely dominated by Asian fighters. The stand out champion is Momo Koseki, who has held the WBC title since August 2008, the next best fighter in the division is WBA champion Ayakaya Miyao who defended her title for the 5th defence last March when she battled against Thailand's Buangern Onesongchaigym.
Interestingly on the same card Koseki defended her belt against another Onesongchaigym fighter, Angor Onesongchaigym.
(Note-Miyao's record as shown on screen is 12-1 (1) that's due to some of her her early bouts not being recognised by the JBC)
