Japanese teenage Juiki Tatsuyoshi (2-0, 2) might be best known as "the son of Joichiro Tatsuyoshi" but earlier today he proved he could fight a bit, just as he old man could, as he picked up his second victory as a professional boxer and stopped Naoki Okamura (1-4).
The 18 year old Tatsuyoshi took his time to settle into the bout, patiently trying to spot flaws in Okamura. The following round saw the blonde haired Tatsuyoshi finally begin to really look to impress as he began to let his shots go with bad intentions. It was clear that as soon as he began putting his weight behind shots he was scaring Okamura who went on the retreat do all he could to survive.
Unfortunately for Okamura his survival abilities weren't great and a huge left hand from Tatsuyoshi dropped him hard. As he was rising to his feet the towel came in from his corner, to save Okamura from more harm.
The footage below, shot by youtube user Nov K, shows the fight for those interested interesting in seeing exactly how the youngster looked.
