Uchiyama keeps OPBF belt!

By Joe Koizumi

It was a deluxe night featuring five title bouts at the Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan, on Saturday. WBC#6/WBA#9 Takashi Uchiyama (12-0, 9 KOs), 129.75, kept his OPBF 130-pound belt as he lopsidedly battered #5 Thong Por Chokchai (21-7-1, 14 KOs), 129.5, and finally halted the Thailander at 1:05 of the fifth round. WBA#5/WBC#12 Kohei Kono (23-4, 8 KOs), 115, acquired the vacant OPBF super-fly belt as he scored a unanimous decision (116-112 twice and 115-113) over OPBF#1 Filipino champ Daniel Ferreras (8-3-1, 3 KOs), 114.5, over twelve. WBC#20 Masafumi Ohkubo (15-2-1, 4 KOs), 112, retained his OPBF flyweight belt by a TKO win over Thai national champ Yuchi Carryboy (20-11, 14 KOs), 112, at 2:36 of the seventh session. WBC female light-fly champ Naomi Togashi (6-0, 4 KOs), 107.75, barely kept her throne by earning a tough but unanimous decision (96-94, 96-93 and 97-92) over OA Kokietgym (7-3, 2 KOs), 107.75, over ten. WBC female 102-pound ruler Momo Koseki (8-2, 2 KOs), 101.5, won a nearly shutout decision (100-90, 100-92 and 99-91) over WBC perennial top contender, 39-year-old compatriot Nao Ikeyama (11-2-1, 4 KOs), 101.5, over ten. Promoter: Watanabe Promotions.
