WBC super-bantam champ Toshiaki Nishioka (36-4-3, 23 KOs), 122, impressively kept his belt as he scored his fourth defense, all by KO, by halting previously unbeaten Filipino challenger Balweg Bangoyan (15-1, 6 KOs), 122, at 1:14 of the fifth round on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. Nishioka, a sharp-shooting Japanese southpaw, caught the game and reckless Filipino with his trademark left hand and badly dropped him in the beginning of the fifth. Bangoyan looked hurt with rubbery legs though he resumed fighting. The champ immediately swarmed over the fading opponent to prompt the referee’s well-received stoppage. (More to come)
