Action returns to Japan!
After the day of action in Korea we saw boxing return to Japan on Wednesday thanks to Kyoei.
The show began with four bouts scheduled for 4 rounds. These saw two bouts finishing inside the distance as Shohei Sakaguchi (1-0, 1) stopped Takahiro Yasukawa (0-3) in round 3 and Toshiki Nishihara (3-3-1, 1) took out Ryosuke Ota (1-5) in round 4.
In the 4 round bouts that went the distance Shun Wakabayashi (1-0) won an all-debutant contest with Gaku Sato (0-1) and Yuto Hashiguchi (5-3-1, 4) defeated Mikio Kage (3-3-1, 3) via majority decision.
As well as the bouts over the shorter distance there was also a pair of 8 rounders. These saw Mako Matsuyama (7-7-1, 3) dominating Masatoshi Nakamura (6-8, 3) in an unexpectedly one-sided contest and Hiroyasu Matsuzaki (22-6-2, 11) fighting to a split draw with Zuri Kannan (15-5-3, 4).
