In 1984 Japan's Satoshi Shingaki became the first ever IBF champion from Japan as he claimed the IBF Bantamweight title by over-coming Elmer Magallano. Sadly as well as being the first IBF champion from Japan he was also the first Japanese fighter to lose an IBF title as he was stopped by Australian Jeff Fenech.
The bout was memorable for several reasons, both positive and negative. Not only did it see Fenech winning a world title in just his 7th bout but it also saw some serious debates about the stoppage with Shingaki looking out classed but still fighting back and still looking like he was fine, just out classed. The controversial decision to stop the fight did see a rematch fought just 4 months later, that time however Shingaki was stopped whilst a bloody mess from an horrific cut over his eye.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
