Hardcore boxing fans tuned in earlier today to a Gushiken promoted show live from the Korakuen Hall and streamed (with mixed results) on Ustream. The show, which was headlined by a major female contest, turned out to be one of the most interesting midweek shows in a long time.
The show, dubbed the "The Kanmuriwashi Fight vol.47" , began with several off air bouts, unfortunately we've not got the results for those.
The first fight which was streamed (completely) via Gushiken saw Littletyson Tanaka (4-1, 2) scoring a clear decision victory as he impressed. Tanaka twice dropped his opponent en route to a 4 round victory over Takashi Yamaguchi (1-3).
Following Tanaka's victory we saw the very promising Shingo Eto (12-2-1, 8) stopping Thailand's win-less Thiendaeng Manoprungroj (0-3) following two knockdowns. Shingo Eto, the youngest of the Eto trio, looked excellent at times and landed some amazing shots upstairs and downstairs his opponent was clearly an over-matched opponent.
After Shingo's impressive victory one of his older brothers, Koki Eto,came to the ring. Koki, with his nice shiney WBA "interim" title, announced his first defense of the title. Koki announced that he will be fighting Thailand's Yodmongkol Vor Saengthep in his first defense. We'll bring more details of this contest in the near future.
The third Eto brother, Taiki Eto (12-2, 9), the twin of Koki, was also victorious as he beat Petchsaksin Bovigym (0-1) in what was another mismatch.
Although the three Eto brothers managed to get a great response from the crowd it's fair to say that the crowd were there not for the men but for the female action that made up the main event. This saw former amateur stand out Naoko Fujioka (11-0, 6) jumping from Minimumweight to Super Flyweight and dominating Naoko Yamaguchi (22-4-3, 18) to claim the WBA female world title at 115lbs.
In the shows other contests Hokuto Kawana (2-0, 1) out pointed Tetsu Narisawa (1-1), Taichi Kimura (2-1, 1) defeated Noboru Sasaki (2-6, 1) also by decision, Junichi Obara (4-2-1, 1) out pointed Yuya Kinjo (3-4) and Dai Yokota (1-2, 1) defeated Tomohisa Ishikawa (0-2).
