Earlier today Japanese fight fans in Osaka saw Juiki Tatsuyoshi (5-0, 3) [辰吉寿以輝] take part in his first B class bout, as he faced off against Indonesian fighter Rio Nainggolan (5-3, 2)*, and scored a 1-sided victory.
From the off Tatsuyoshi looked like a man who was fighting to prove he had improved from his last bout, a fortunate win over Kazuki Sanpei. He proved that quickly and actually looked like a fighter who had really been putting in the hard work outside of the ring.
The key for Tatsuyoshi's attack was the body of the Indonesian and it was having an effect almost instantly, with Nainggolan feeling the shots early and being clearly hurt in round 2. The Indonesian tried to show his heart but was dropped thrice in round 3, being stopped at the 2 minute 11 second mark of the round.
For fight fans in Osaka the bout will be broadcast later tonight, on ytv, whilst fight fans across Japan will have to wait until next weekend for the telecast of the bout.
