Eto Brothers all victorious

By Joe Koizumi

Ex-WBA junior flyweight champ Yoko Gushiken, now as a promoter/manager, handles three Eto brothers, all of whom showed a good form and impressively scored fine victories beneath the Yamaguchi-Piazza female title bout on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan.

Fast-rising 115-pound prospect Daiki Eto (11-2, 8 KOs), 114.25, decked a very important victory over WBA #14 ranked PABA super-fly champ Ali Rochmad (20-2-1, 15 KOs), 115, by finishing him for the count at 1:45 of the third round. The Indonesian southpaw was so heavy-fisted that he began swinging very solid punches to befuddle Eto in the first round. But the taller Japanese kept outpunching the slower Indonesian and finally landed a very strong right to the face of Rochmad, who badly hit the deck to be unable to beat the count.

His twin brother, WBA #10 flyweight Koki Eto (13-2-1, 10 KOs), 112, also scored a fine KO triumph over Thailander Yodkhunkrai Sor. Laddagym (8-6, 1 KO), 111, at 1:30 of the second round. Koki had entered the WBA top ten thanks to his come-from-behind second round stoppage of then world-rated Denchailek Kratingdaeng-gym last November. The lanky but pugnacious Koki landed roundhouse overhand rights to drop him twice and his follow-up attack prompted the referee’s intervention. Koki is gunning for a world flyweight title shot in the near future according to Gushiken’s blue print.

Shingo Eto (11-2-1, 7 KOs), 131.5, the youngest of Eto brothers, was a TKO winner over Thailander Superjames Singmanasaak (13-14, 2 KOs), 128.5, at 2:55 of the fifth session in a scheduled eight. We look forward to watching the growth of Eto brothers with great interests.
