The first card of today was at the Yemen Boxing Federation Gym in the Yemeni capital of Sanaa. The show had 7 bouts in total though again it lacked the "biggest name in Yemeni boxing" Ali Raymi, instead it featured some of best of the rest.
Arguably the biggest name on the card was Somalian Yasin Abdulkhalik (5-0, 3) who took his 3rd victory inside a week as he took a 10 round decision over Moxamad Abdu (2-1, 1). This was one of 2 bouts that went the 10 round schedule with Asam Dolbhante (3-0) out pointing Ali Sanabani (2-2, 1) in the other.
Although those 2 bouts did go the 10 round distance Yaser Ali (2-0, 2) refused to let his bout go the 10 round as he stopped Khaled Munasar (0-2) in the 9th round of their bout.
Surprisingly Ali's stoppage of Munasarwas one of just 2 stoppages on the show with Khaldun Salami (2-0, 1) stopping Yasir Shadhili (1-1) in the 4 and final round of their bout.
The reamining trio of contests all went the 4 round distance with Abdelsamid Sameer (2-0) defeating Mohammad Saleh (2-1) by unanimous decision likewise Ali Salem (3-0, 1) took a shut out over Esam Aunfi (1-1, 1). The only competitive decision saw Othman Qasim (3-0) take a majority decision over Khaled Sulaym (1-1, 1).
As well as the card in Yemen there was also a show in Tokyo with 10 bouts as part of the "Rookie of the Year" tournament.
In the Minimumweight division there was an unexpected draw between Naoyuki Tsukada (3-0-1, 2) and Masaaki Okubo (3-1-1, 1). The bout, scored a split decision draw was tight through out and neither man can really complain about the result.
At Light Flyweight we surprisingly had 3 contests as Tomoyuki Kaneko (5-1, 2) took a unanimous decision over Hikaru Ota (2-2, 1), Yuta Sakai (2-4) over came Tadashi Nishioka (2-5-1) and Rei Ochiai (1-1, 3) fought to a draw with Mao Hoshino (3-8-2).
In the Flyweight division Katsunori Shimooki (3-2-1) took a narrow split decision over Naoto Takanashi (3-7-1, 2) whilst unbeaten Super Flyweight Jo Tanooka (5-0-3) took a majority decision over Uko Nonami (2-1-1, 1).
The Bantamweight class saw victories for Yuki Arai (3-1), who stopped Yamato Nakagawa (4-3, 2) inside 2 minutes, and Yukichi Hara (4-2, 1) out pointed Ryosuke Hayase (3-1) who lost his unbeaten record as a result.
It wasn't just Yuki Aria who scored an opening round victory as both Naoto Fujimoto (4-2-1, 2), who took out Takahiro Shibata (4-2-1, 1) at Super Bantamweight, and Yuki Nagano (2-1, 2), who took out Minoru Iizuka (2-1, 2), also scored early opening round victories.
In Thailand Samson Tor Buamas (30-3, 14) was given an unexpectedly tough test as she defended her WIBA Miimumweight title against Alexis Mary Asher (0-1). Tor Buamas, widely regarded as one of the best female fighters in the Minimumweight division, was pushed incredibly hard by the American debutant despite winning. The tight nature fight would leave us 3 possible ideas, either Asher is a very good fighter, Buamas at 30 years old is on the slide or Buamas is possible struggling to make 105lbs from having seen the fight however it's likely that Asher is just much better than an average debutant
