So now on to the fight. It was a recent one for the OPBF Light Welterweight title that saw the very heavy handed Keita Obara, making the first defence of his title, and former 2 title challenger Shinya Iwabuchi, also a heavy handed fighter. On paper it was a great fight between two heavy handed fighters with serious power and differing styles.
Sadly, in many ways, the bout started slowly with neither man really settling very quickly, in fact it seemed like the usual feeling out process lasted significantly longer than it usually does, an issue in many ways with the stances of the men which saw the orthodox Obara struggling to get control of distance against Iwabuchi, a counter punching southpaw. Thankfully as the fight progressed it did begin to catch light and ended in chilling fashion with the power of one man really proving it's fight ending ability.
