Lee outboxes Watanabe, sets sights on OPBF title

By Victor Lee

In a ten-round non-title main event just over the featherweight limit, current Korean super bantamweight champion and OPBF #1 super bantamweight Jaesung Lee (17-3-2, 9 KOs) saw his hand raised after a thrilling dustup with Japan #8 featherweight Takuya Watanabe (20-5-1, 8 KOs) on Sunday in Seoul, South Korea. Watanabe was down in round three from a Jaesung Lee straight right. In the supporting semifinal event, Eunchang Lee (7-3, 3 KOs) stopped Jaehoon Lee (5-4-1, 3 KOs) in eight rounds to claim the vacant Korean super middleweight title. Full report to come.
