This past Monday saw three Japanese fighters competing in bouts in Thailand, with all 3 of the visitors picking up rather straight forward wins.
The most notable of the visitors was former Japanese Featherweight title challenger Takuya Watanabe (29-6-1, 15) [渡邉 卓也], who returned for his 4th Thai bout. The tough Watanabe made light work of his over-matched foe with a 2nd round TKO win, his third win since losing to Satoshi Hosono last October.
The other two of those fighters were both Watanabe gym novices.
One of them was Hiroto Kyoguchi (2-0, 2) [京口紘人], who scored an opening round win over a horrible over-matched local fighter, just like stablemate Masataka Taniguchi (2-0, 2) [谷口将隆].
Strangely Taniguchi's bout isn't yet listed on boxrec.com though he is confirmed to have easily took out his opponent, just like Kyoguchi did.
