Tada, Fujiok, Ando, Jelena win

By Joe Koizumi

A female tripleheader and a WBC final eliminator took place on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan.

Unbeaten WBA 105-pound champ Etsuko Tada (9-0-2, 2 KOs), 104.25, a fast-moving southpaw, kept her belt for the sixth time when she pounded out a nearly shutout decision (100-90 twice and 98-92) over ex-WBC 108-pound ruler Nongmuay Kokietgym (10-3-3, no KO), 104.5, Thailand, over ten hot rounds.

WBC 105-pound titlist Naoko Fujioka (7-0, 5 KOs), Japan, displayed a Naseem-Hamed style and freely battered official challenger Kanittha Kokietgym (13-4, 4 KOs), Thailand, from all angles en route to a well-received TKO win at 0:37 of the ninth session. It’s the hard-hitting Fujioka’s initial defense since she dethroned Mexican Anabel Ortiz this May.

Slick-punching Japanese girl Mari Ando (8-3, 4 KOs), 101.5, impressively acquired the vacant WBA light-minimumweight belt by winning a unanimous verdict (98-92 twice and 97-93) over Amara Kokietgym (7-2-1, 3 KOs), 101.5, Thailand, over ten. The WBA newly established the 102-pound category, and Ando became the very first champ through this elimination bout.

Ex-WBC 130-pound ruler, Canadian Jelena Mrdjenovich (25-8-1, 12 KOs), 128.75, showed her superior speed and skills in defeating Raika Fujin (22-7-1, 9 KOs), a game Japanese veteran, by a unanimous nod (96-94, 98-92 and 97-93) in a WBC final eliminator to decide the official challenger over ten.
