Unbeaten Japanese, JBC#12 Masayuki Ito (12-0-1, 4 KOs), 134.75, acquired the vacant WBC youth lightweight belt as he lopsidedly battered Filipino southpaw Jeffrey Arienza (9-2-1, 4 KOs), 135, and finally halted him at 1:22 of the tenth and final session on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. The light-punching but busy Japanese youngster took the initiative from the outset, and piled up points with ease. His faster combinations were effective enough to prevent Arienza from turning the tables. Ito, in round nine, furiously accelerated his attack to finish him and bring home the bacon but temporarily lost his equilibrium, when the Filipino caught him with a countering left. Ito touched the canvas to suffer a flash knockdown, but he went on whipping the fading Filipino foe. The final stanza saw Ito overwhelm him with an unanswered rally that prompted the referee Fukuchi’s intervention.

Former world champion turned trainer Ricky “The Hitman” Hatton swapped his focus pads for gloves on Friday morning and did several rounds with Ryan Burnett in order to sharpen him up for his appearance on the undercard of Carl Frampton’s clash with Jeremy Parodi on October 19. And Hatton says it’s something he’ll be doing with all his boxers from now on. “Because of my retirement I’ll never be a slim Jim, but it was good to get in there and do a few rounds,” Ricky said. “What better way of training the lads is there than sparring? By getting in the ring I can see if they’re dropping their left hand or making any other mistakes their opponents can take advantage of. When I hit them on the chin it hits home and I can’t teach them that kind of lesson with the pads. here’s some great trainers out there, but I can’t think of one who’d be willing to do some sparring with their lads. I’ll be doing it with all my mine from now on.”
Despite his enjoyment of sparring again, ‘The Hitman’ was quick to rule out another comeback. “There’s no chance of me fighting again. I’m very happy with the career I had and all achieved so I’m going to leave it at that. Although the result didn’t go my way, I got what I wanted from the fight with Senchenko. I proved I could go straight back in with a former world champion and I’m proud of that.”
Last Saturday night at Ponte Brenta, Padova, Italy, Devis Boschiero (34-1-1, 16 KOs) kept his European super featherweight title by unanimous decision (117-111, 117-111, 117-112) against undefeated official challenger Guillaume Frenois (now 31-1, 5 KOs). Next for Boschiero should be the World title. He’s ranked #1 by the WBC, #3 by WBO and IBF and should be #2 by the WBA as he beat Frenois the current #2. Boschiero already fought for the WBC super featherweight title in 2011 in Japan losing a very controversial split decision against then champion Takahiro Aoh. OPI 2000 (Salvatore and Christian Cherchi) promoted the show.
