Koseki keeps WBC female 102lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten Japanese southpaw Momo Koseki (13-2-1, 3 KOs), 101.25, scored her eighth defense of the WBC atomweight belt as she defeated Jujeath Nagaowa (11-11-1, 7 KOs), 101.25, Philippines, by a lopsided decision (98-92 twice and 99-91) over ten fast frames on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan. The 29-year-old Koseki wrested the WBC 102-pound belt by an upset KO win over defending champ Winyu Paradorngym in two quick rounds in 2008, and thus showed her improvement to make the most defenses among Japanese female titleholders. The Filipino challenger attempted to bore in from the start, but the champ utilized accurate southpaw jabs and straight lefts to take the leadoff. The open scoring system indicated after the fourth: 40-36 twice and 39-37 all for Koseki.

Having acquired the ABCO 105-pound belt by stopping Aisah Alico this February, Nagaowa, 24, kept swinging lefts and rights to come close to the shifty champ, who outpunched the challenger with good combinations to pile up points steadily. After the seventh: 70-63 twice and 69-64 for the more skillful champ. Koseki swept the last three rounds downthe stretch to confirm her triumph thanks to her superior speed and skills.
