Tepparith Kokietgym (19-2, 12) Vs Tomonobu Shimizu (19-3-1, 9)
In recent years the WBA has come under fire from boxing fans and journalists in the West for the way they seem to allow multiple titles with out any real logic. Although Western media has only really began to take notice in the last 2 years or so the JBC actually began to show their annoyance way back in 2011 when they messed about in regards to the WBA Super Flyweight division.
In May 2011 Tepparith Kokietgym beat Drian Francisco to claim the WBA Interim Super Flyweight title at the time Hugo Fidel Cazares was the "regular champion". Just months later Tonomobu Shimizu would defeat Cazares for the title. When Shimzu ended up suffering an injury the WBA made him Champion in Recess and upgraded Tepparith so that he was the regular champion and in December 2011 he was allowed to defend against Daiki Kameda, one of the many Kameda related stories that annoyed the JBC. After Tepparith beat Kameda he was contractually obligated to face Shimizu, in a bout that took place just 8 months after Shimzu had won the title.
In total the WBA claimed 7 sanctioning fees in less than 12 months following the Tepparith Vs Francisco bout in May 2011, and it's understandable as to why the JBC quickly stamped their view on the WBA's interim titles.
