Miura stops Jardon to keep WBC 130lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

WBC super-feather champ, Japanese southpaw Takashi Miura (27-2-2, 20 KOs), 130, impressively retained his belt as he overwhelmed WBC#2 ranked Mexican Dante “Crazy” Jardon (24-4, 20 KOs), 130, from the outset, badly floored him in the fifth, accelerated his persistent attack and finally decked him again to prompt the referee’s intervention at 0:55 of the ninth session on Tuesday in Tokyo, Japan.

It was more lopsided than people had expected, as Miura maintained the pressure from the start and kept battering the breadbasket of Jardon, who desperately withstood the champ’s persistent attack. After the fourth, the open scoring system indicated 40-36 by all the judges, and after the eighth, 80-71 twice and 80-70, all in favor of the pugnacious champ.

The fatal ninth saw Miura swarm over the exhausted Mexican with a barrage of punches to have him down again, when the referee declared a well-received halt.
