February 9th 2009-Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan
Daisuke Nakagawa (12-2-1, 9) Vs Koji Numata (15-2-1, 10) II
In 2006 Daisuke Nakagawa [中川 大資] scored a very narrow win over Koji Numata [沼田 康司] in a non-title fight. The two men would then face off again in 2009, with Numata looking to record his second defense of the Japanese Welterweight crown.
Not every fighter is world class and it's fair suggest that no one would ever describe Koji Numata as a world class fighter. Despite that every fighter does have their level and Numata's level is likely at the top of the Japanese domestic scene, afterall he is a former Japanese Welterweight champion.
Numata's reign as the Japanese champion did come back in 2008 though he has continued on with mixed success as his limited skills have allowed some fighters to beat him whilst his power has managed to take out others.
One man to feel his power was Ryo Okayama who lasted less than 4 rounds with Numata last December before being left flat on his back and looking in some trouble as his team got to him.
It wasn't the most amazing of KO's but it was a solid one for Numata who was looking to revive his dreams of getting a second OPBF title fight, having previously lost to Charlie Ota in an OPBF Light Middleweight title bout.
Whilst the win was a good one for Numata it did seem to begin a down fall for Okayama who was later stopped, in 6 rounds, by the talented but light punching Yuki Nonaka.
