Earlier today at the Korakuen Hall Japanese fans saw former WBA Super Bantamweight world title challenger Hidenori Otake (25-2, 12) [大竹 秀典] scoe a stoppage against Thai visitor Satantung Sor Bangkhru (0-2)*.
The Thai a massive under-dog, was given no chance by anybody, including Otake who dropped him with a right hand on the jaw in round 2. The Thai remained down for the 10 count with Otake recording his third successive stoppage win.
After the bout Otake stated that he was still going to be chasing a world title, though it does seem unlikely he'll claim one given that he's 35 later this year.
Also on the card fans saw Shusaku Fujinaka (13-6-2, 8) [藤中 周作] take an 8 round decision win over Takashi Inagaki (17-14-2, 7) [稲垣 孝]. This was Fujinaka's first bout following his loss, in Korea, to Randall Bailey.
Although not the biggest or best of shows it was one that was held in memory of Shigeji Kaneko, who passed away in January aged 84.
*Satantung's record also reported as being 7-5 (4)
