In our eyes one of Japan's most under-rated fighters is southpaw boxer Yuki Nonaka who appears to be regularly over-looked. One of the reasons Nonaka doesn't seem to get the respect he deserves is his lack of power, as a boxer he really does seem to have everything else with nice speed, shots, movement and understanding of the ring.
Even without power Nonaka has scored some pretty good stoppages including his solid one against Thai journeyman Ekapop Mor Krungthep Thonburee that appeared to come from the placement of a shot as opposed to a power of a show.
The bout, an absolute mismatch from the moment it was signed, was finished with a body shot that seemed to sent Ekapop on his way whilst Nonaka landed a head shot whilst the Thai was on his way down. We can't pretend it was a good fight but it against show off the skills of Nonaka who is a very tidy boxer and has caught out eye a few times now for performances like this.
