Soto-Sasaki Update

By Gabriel F. Cordero

On Saturday at the Parque Andrés Quintana Roo in Cozumel, Quintana Roo, Mexico, WBC lightweight champion Humberto “Zorrita” Soto (55-7-2, 32 KOs) faces Japan’s Motoki Sasaki (36-8-1, 23 KOs) in defense of his world title. “I trained hard for this fight and I hope for the victory,” said Soto. “Fights between Mexicans and Japanese are interesting and I hope Sasaki is a great fighter. Sasaki is an aggressive fighter and strong and will surely come well prepared. We analyzed the video of one of his fights and in truth it won’t be easy, but I’m coming to do my thing.” Sasaki has already arrived in Cozumel. photos…

Feature Story

Akaho, Sato collide in August

By Joe Koizumi

Highly anticipated is a forthcoming encounter of world-rated Japanese 115-pounders Ryo Akaho (16-0-2, 10 KOs) and Yota Sato (20-2, 12 KOs) with the former’s OPBF super-fly belt on the line in Tokyo, Japan, on August 4. Akaho lately acquired the vacant OPBF throne by halting Australian titlist Fred Mundraby via fifth round stoppage this May. The challenger Sato is a WBC#4/WBC#5 contender, holding his national belt which won’t be at stake this time. Sato, making his third defense, recently kept his Japanese title against world-rated veteran Kohei Kono to his credit. The unbeaten Akaho is fast and can punch, while Sato is more skillful and experienced. It will be a very important and competitive confontation of the near-future world challengers.

There’s a funny story. Masaru Yamada, of Yokohama Hikari Promotions that handles the defending OPBF ruler Akaho, took a plane from Thailand back to Tokyo, Japan, some weeks ago. He enjoyed a chat with a stewardess therein, saying he’s a boxing person. He boasted of his gym’s hot prospect Akaho and mentioned his next bout with the national champ Sato. She then replied, “The opponent Yota is my brother.” Yamada was greatly stunned by the coincidence. Good luck for both.

Sasaki departs for Mexico

By Joe Koizumi

OPBF super-light champ Motoki Sasaki (36-8-1, 23 KOs), a cagey veteran of Japan, left for Mexico yesterday (Saturday) to have an ambitious crack at the WBC lightweight belt against Humberto Soto (55-7-2, 32 KOs) this coming Saturday. Sasaki, 35, once experienced a shot at the WBA welter ruler Viacheslav Senchenko only to lose on points in Ukraine in September 2009. But the seasoned campaigner captured the OPBF 140-pound belt by dropping defending titlist Randy Suico en route to a split verdict in July of the previous year and kept it twice by halting Geisler AP and Pansoo Kim to his credit. WBC#12 Sasaki, who previously visited the fight place Cozumel as a traveler, seems willing to cause an upset and bring back the WBC green belt to Tokyo.

Other Guerrero Victorious

By Kurt Wolfheimer

Friday night at Harrington Raceway and Casino, Salisbury Maryland’s Alex Guerrero (7-0-1, 4KOs) took another step up the cruiserweight ladder with a one sided second round stoppage of thirty five fight veteran Chris “Cold Steel” Thomas (17-16-2, 14KOs) in the four round main event of the evening.

Guerrero, the older brother of Alex Guerrero seemed relaxed right from the opening moment, snapping sharp jabs which opened up several tight combinations. Thomas of Chicago, Illinois tried to step back and counter but the Salisbury natives’ defense was tight and he began to time his opponents advances. Guerrero timed one of those advances late, in the opening round and sent Thomas reeling to the ropes from an overhand right. Guerrero tried to end it and was battering him in the closing seconds, but the bell to end the round temporarily saved him. (more…)

In a fight that was turning into a war veteran former champion Luis Ramón “Yori Boy” Campas controversially defeated young power puncher Rogelio “Porky” Medina, in the main event of the card held at the Explanada Tecate of Navojoa, Sonora, México. The result ended in a TKO victory for the local fighter, “Yori Boy” (98-15-1, 77 KOs), who put down “Porky” (25-2, 19 KOs) with a punched that seemed clearly under the beltline, but the referee ruled it as good and started applying the count, and due to that he had to get up, with difficulty, and right after Campas jumped all over him and the third man in the ring acted again –prematurely, to call a halt to the duel, which was scheduled for 10 rounds at middleweight.
