The sole card of today was a Muto promotions card in the Sumiyoshi Ward Center in Osaka city. The 6 fight card, promoted as a "triple header", didn't look the greatest on paper though did give us a surprise or two along the way.
The show kicked off with the debuting Kensaku Kozuki (1-0) taking a very narrow points decision over Keisei Nishiwaki (0-2-1). The fight, close from the off, saw only a point separating the two men on two of the cards, this was followed by an even closer decision as Yosukezan Watanabe (2-0-1) defeated Kotaro Shinya (3-6-1, 3) by a sole point across the board.
After the two razor thin 4 round bouts there was a sole 6 rounder in which Cyborg Nawatedani (5-2-2, 3) swiftly dispatched the previously unbeaten Kodai Ueki (3-1-2) in just 103 seconds.
In the first of the three main events things went to plan as Yuki Nonaka (24-8-2, 8), a highly ranked Japanese Middleweight, took out the over-matched Thai Ekapop Mor Krungthep Thonburee (3-5-1, 2) in the 4th round.
Unfortunately however not everything went to plan and in the second of the main trio of bouts Yubon Kim (10-3, 3) took an upset decision over Yuta Uetani (13-5-1, 5) who entered the bout as the OPBF 14th ranked Featherweight. Although the bout was made at Super Bantamweight we wouldn't be shocked to see Uetani losing his Featherweight ranking as a result.
Thankfully, for the ranked fighters anyway, normal service was resumed in the final of the main trio of bouts as ranked Welterweight Tetsuya Suzuki (29-11, 16) took out his opponent. Matched against Udomsin Nonpitayakom (0-4) there was very little doubt that Suzuki was going to take home a victory here, but with the upset of Uetani he may have been nervous, thankfully though he took out the Thai at the very end of the opening round.
