Charlie Ota (24-1-1, 16) Vs Jermell Charlo (23-0, 11)
Not many fighters from outside of Asia make a name for themselves in Japan but that's exactly what Charles Bellamy did, fighting under the ring name Charlie Ota. Despite making a name for himself in Japan he has fought several bouts in North America, including a bout in Canada against Jermell Charlo.
December 28th 2014- Sumiyoshi Ward Center, Osaka, Osaka, Japan
Yuki Nonaka (26-8-2, 9) Vs Charlie Ota (24-2-1, 16)
Late last year we had a very interesting Japanese Light Middleweight title fight between defending champion Yuki Nonaka, a very popular fighter in Osaka, and Japanese based American Charlie Ota. On paper it was a really interesting bout and it proved to be just as interesting in the ring with some controversy after the bout regarding the scoring of the contest. We won't ruin it for those who don't know the result but we will say that it's a bout well worth watching.
