Naito defeats Xiong!

By Joe Koizumi

After a fiasco of the fight location being moved to Japan from China just three days before, WBC flyweight champ Daisuke Naito (35-2-3, 22 KOs), a 34-year-old Japanese, barely kept his belt as he came off the deck in the sixth and maintained his early lead on points with his final effort to earn a hard-fought unanimous decision over Xiong Zhao-Zhong (12-2-1, 8 KOs), 112, over twelve see-saw rounds on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan. The official tallies were as follows: Noparat Sricharoen (Thailand) 113-111, Jaebong Kim (Korea) 114-111 and Yuji Fukuchi (Japan) 114-110, all for the defending champ who managed to score his fifth defense since he dethroned Thailander Pongsaklek Wongjongkam in July 2007.
