April 13th 2017-Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan
Masayuki Ito (20-1-1, 9) vs Lorenzo Villanueva (32-2-0-1, 28)
Last week Japanese fans at the Korakuen Hall had the chance to see Masayuki Ito [伊藤 雅雪] attempt to defend the WBO Asia Pacific Super Featherweight title against big punching Filipino Lorenzo Villanueva.
For some the best fights are at the top of the sport when two world class fighters trade shots for world titles. For others however the best fights are those that are of a savage nature with two fighters trying to beat lumps out of each other as quickly and efficiently as they can. With that in mind we've included this short but thrilling contest between Indonesia's popular Daud Cino Yordan and Filipino power puncher Lorenzo Villanueva from May 5th 2012.
This is one of those "short but sweet" contests that sees everything great about the sport. It sees power punching from both, heart from both and so much action that it's amazing that they managed to fit it in such a short contest. Enjoy!
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
