In his first fight Tobe faced South Korean champion Jin Ki Jung and then, on June 13th 2011, he jumped in with former world champion Wandee Singwancha, a Thai with 80 fights of professional experience. Singwancha may not have been a natural Super Flyweight, like Tobe, or been in the prime of his career but it was still a potentially tough match up for a 1 fight novice.
Despite the bout being tough on paper Tobe managed to really impress as he not only beat Singwancha but actually stopped him in 2 rounds as he used his speed, size and power to over-come the experience of the Thai.
Whilst things, after this fight, haven't gone perfectly for Tobe he did manage to go on and claim the Japanese Super Flyweight title in just his 10th bout. As for Singwancha his career was ended less than 2 years later when he was stopped by Hong Kong's popular Rex Tso.
