Pontillas demolishes Tokunaga in one

By Joe Koizumi

OPBF top ranked ex-OPBF super-feather champ, Filipino southpaw Ronald Pontillas (15-4-3, 7 KOs), 134.5, displayed a furious demolition of elongated local prospect Kota Tokunaga (8-2, 7 KOs), 135, at 2:34 of the opening session on Sunday in Kyoto, Japan. For Pontillas, Japan may be located in a good direction as he thus scored three good victories to his credit. The lanky southpaw Filipino once captured the OPBF belt by an upset first round stoppage of defending champ Masao Nakamura in May 2011. He lost the regional belt to Donghyuk Kim on a technical decision in his second defense this January, and Kim yielded it to lefty Thailander Jomthong Chuwattana via ninth round TKO last May. The OPBF 130-pound belt changed hands very busily, and Pontillas is willing to have a mandatory shot at the newly crowned Jomthong, a vastly talented Thai youngster and ex-Muaythai superstar. Pontillas, 22, tonight caught the taller Japanese local prospect with a vicious southpaw left, dropping him twice and for the count. Pontillas, a Japanese killer, looked very impressive. Promoter: Woz Promotions.
