Kiyota, Miyazaki, Shikasho win

By Joe Koizumi

We witnessed a triple header with the OPBF and national belts on the line today (Monday; our national holiday named Athletic Day) in Tokyo, Japan. OPBF super-middle champ Seizo Kiyota (18-2-1, 16 KOs), 168, was awarded a TKO victory as he landed a very strong right cross to Indonesian challenger Yanto Siamora (13-4-4, 3 KOs), 168, to halt him at 2:52 of the third round in a scheduled twelve. Australian referee Frank Hadley didn’t bother to intervene, as he saw the much shorter Indonesian unfit to go on because of his absorption of punishment. Unbeaten prospect from Osaka, JBC#6 Ryo Miyazaki (10-0-2, 5 KOs), 108, upset WBA#9/WBC#9 ex-world challenger and national champ Munetsugu Kayo (17-3-3, 9 KOs), 107.5, by a unanimous technical decision (99-94, 98-94, 97-94) at 1:13 of the tenth and final stanza to capture the Japanese 108-pound belt in a surprising ten. Miyazaki’s direct big rights very frequently caught the southpaw champ to effectively hurt and bloody him, and a head-collision in the last session made the ref Uratani to terminate the affair and take a technical verdict. Game and gutsy Asami Shikasho (3-1, 1 KO), 112, acquired the vacant female OPBF flyweight belt by lopsidedly batter Thailander OA Kokietgym (6-4, 1 KO), 111, to stop her at 0:46 of the eighth round in a scheduled ten-round elimination bout. Promoter: Flash Akabane Promotions.
