5 title bouts in Japan

By Joe Koizumi

We are looking forward to watching no less than five world title bouts in a couple of weeks here in Japan. On Saturday, in Osaka, WBA bantam champ Koki Kameda (24-1, 15 KOs) will make his initial defense against Nicaraguan Daniel Diaz (18-2, 13 KOs) over twelve rounds.

On Sunday, in Tokyo (at the Korakuen Hall), there will be a female WBC title triple-header that was postponed for eight weeks from March 12 because of the earthquake happening just after the weigh-in ceremony. WBC 108-pound champ Naomi Togashi (8-0, 4 KOs) will defend her belt against Filipino Jujeath Nagaowa (9-9-1, 5 KOs) over ten two-minute rounds. WBC 102-pound titlist Momo Koseki (10-2-1, 2 KOs) will put her belt on the line against unbeaten Thailander Krikanok Islandmuaythai (4-0-1, 2 KOs). WBC 105-pound queen Anabel Ortiz (7-1, 1 KO), from Mexico, will face ex-amateur champ Nahoko Fujioka (5-0, 3 KOs) with her throne at stake. This event is presented by WBC Cares and Gen International.

On May 17, also at the Hall in Tokyo, WBA female super-fly champ Tsunami Tenkai will make her fourth defense against Thailander Petchsairoong Looksaikongdin over ten.

The busy fistic schedule may symbolize this country’s steady effort for restoration after the horrible earthquake and tsunami disaster.
