As we've mentioned in the past the "Rookie of the Year" competitions do have some very even match up bouts courtesy of the way the competition works. One of the most even came very recently as Shoma Koga fought Ryusei Yabe. Koga came into the bout the reputation of a punching having compiled a record of 3-1 (3) going in to this bout whilst Yabe, the taller fighter at 5'10", was unbeaten with a record of 3-0 (2).
The bout, despite the size differential of the two men, was very difficult to split and the judges ended up with a majority draw, a fair result given the way the contest went.
