RISE 85 Results: Jaideep Wins HWGP, RENA defeats Kamimura, Komiyama defeats Wielzen

Earlier today at JCB Hall, RISE held its 2011 Heavyweight tournament featuring the likes of Stefan Leko, Mighty Mo, Singh “Heart” Jaideep and Fabiano Cyclone, as well as its first women’s title fight in Erika Kamimura vs RENA, a superfight between Super Featherweight champion Kosuke Komiyama and Sergio Wielzen, a superfight between Super Lightweight champion Koji Yoshimoto and Son Hyun Lee and a Bantamweight title fight between Kenji Kubo and Dyki.

The quarterfinals of the heavyweight tournament featured three upsets. In a somewhat expected upset, RISE Heavyweight champion Makoto Uehara beat up K-1 veteran Stefan Leko en route to a unanimous decision victory on scores of 30-27(x2) and 30-26. Uehara scored a down in the third round, but was on his way to victory as he was all over Leko who had two fights just a week ago in the SuperKombat tournament. In another slight upset, WPMF World Heavyweight champion Fabiano “Cyclone” Aoki received just his second loss since 2007, losing to Kyokushin karate fighter Jan Soukup by majority decision on scores of 29-28(x2) and 28-28. Cyclone appeared to do well throughout most of the fight, but fell victim to a down in the second round which cost him the fight. In the other half of the bracket, K-1 fighter and J-Network Heavyweight champion Singh “Heart” Jaideep defeated K-1 veteran Hiromi Amada by 2nd round TKO as a result of a cut caused by a knee. In the final quarterfinal bout, RISE Heavyweight title challenger Raoumaru was able to outland and outlast K-1 fighter Mighty Mo, scoring a 3rd round KO at 2:49 into the round.

In the semifinals, RISE HW champ Makoto Uehara continued his run, edging out Jan Soukup in an extension round on scores of 10-9(x3) after judges had determined the fight to be a majority draw after 3 rounds, with scores of 29-28, 29-29 and 28-28. In the other semifinal, Singh “Heart” Jaideep made short work of Raoumaru, scoring a 1st round KO at 1:39 with a knee strike.

In the finals, K-1 fighter Singh “Heart” Jaideep defeated RISE Heavyweight champion Makoto Uehara by 1st round KO to win the RISE Heavyweight tournament. The knockout capped off a great performance from Jaideep who finished off all three of his opponents and is now 2-0 against Uehara.

In the night’s co-main event, 2-time Girls S-Cup champion RENA defeated WPMF, WBC Muay Thai and WMC Light Flyweight champion Erika Kamimura by razor-close unanimous decision on scores of 47-46(x2) and 46-45 to become the first Queen of RISE. I believe the only thing keeping the fight from a draw is a pair of penalties for Kamimura and one for RENA, though it could have been one penalty each, I am not entirely sure.

In the night’s final title fight, former NJKF Flyweight champion Kenji Kubo, brother of Yuta Kubo, defeated RISE #1 ranked Bantamweight Dyki by 1st round KO at 1:35 to win the vacant RISE Bantamweight title.

In super fights, RISE Super Featherweight and Super Lightweight champions Kosuke Komiyama and Koji Yoshimoto won, with Komiyama defeating former It’s Showtime 61kg champ Sergio Wielzen  by 1st round TKO and Yoshimoto edging out a win over top Korean Son Hyun Lee on scores of 29-28, 29-27 and 28-27. Lee started with a 1 point penalty for weighing in over the limit and another penalty was given in the fight for clinching, though I’m not sure to who. The Komiyama-Wielzen fight was stopped due to a cut.

Brother of Kosuke Komiyama, Yusuke Komiyama made his pro debut, fighting to a draw.

M-1 Muay Thai/It's Showtime Japan 5 Results: Umeno, Tsukahara, TOMA Claim Titles, Saenchi Wins

Earlier today at Differ Ariake in Tokyo, M-1 held its second co-promotion with It's Showtime Japan headlined by two WPMF World Title fights, a WPMF Japan title fight, a WPMF Japan #1 contender's bout and a fight with Saenchai Sinbimuaythai.

In the night's main event, rising star Genji Umeno captured his 8th straight win with a 1st round KO via elbow at 2:39 into the round over Dekkamon HimaraiGym to net him the WPMF World Super Featherweight title. This moves the 22 year old's record to 18-1(9 KO) and may move him up further in the Lumpinee Stadium rankings, where he currently sits ninth. Up next for Umeno is an exciting showdown with WPMF Japan Featherweight champion Yosuke Morii on December 22nd. Should he get past Morii, I would assume he would begin to focus on capturing a Lumpinee Stadium title, which he may be able to do being in a relatively weak division.

In the co-main event, WPMF Japan Lightweight champion Arita Tsukahara upset WPMF World Lightweight champion Kanongsuk Weerasakreck with a 4th round TKO at 2:26 into the round to capture the WPMF World Lightweight title. This is a surprising result as Kanongsuk had been on an absolute tear lately, going 8-1 in his last 9 with wins over Rashata, Genki Yamamoto, Hiromasa Masuda and Satoshi Endo with his only loss to Kan Itabashi. Tsukahara was coming off of a loss to Masahiro Yamamoto back in August. Both fighters' futures are unknown at the moment, but both could find themselves fighting at the December 22nd Fujiwara Festival event.

In the night's last title bout, WPMF Japan Super Flyweight champion TO-MA picked up the vacant WPMF Japan Bantamweight title with a unanimous decision win over the previously undefeated Takuma Ito on scores of 50-47(x2) and 50-46. The title belonged to Ichinohe Sota, though I'm not sure why he vacated it as his only fight since winning it back in April was a draw against Takuma Ito. Regardless, TO-MA has a few options going forward, as he could face Sota, Arashi Fujiwara in a rematch or recently crowned WBC Japan champions Ryuji Kato or Ryuya Kusakabe. For Ito it's back to the drawing board as he has 21 year old has recorded his only two blemishes on his record in the past 6 months. A matchup with recent WBC Japan title challengers Kojiro or Shuichi Uentsu would be a good test for Ito.

In the main non-title fight, renowned Thai fighter Saenchai Sinbimuaythai took longer than most would have expected to dispose of J-Network Super Lightweight champion Shunsuke Oishi, with Saenchai finishing him off at 1:35 into the 4th round. I do not know how the fight went, but the result isn't too bad for Oishi who could have a future in K-1. For Saenchai it's a 5th straight win and puts him at 17-2 since the start of 2010.

Finally, in a #1 contender's bout for the WPMF Japan Featherweight title, 5th ranked Yuji Umehara upset 2nd ranked Hiroki Nagashima with a 1st round TKO as a result of a cut. Umehara is now set to face current champion Yosuke Morii, however with Morii set to face Umeno on December 22nd and the way this fight ended, there could be a rematch between the two. {jcomments on}

Krush.13 Results: Krush Sweeps Europe 3-0

Earlier today at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Krush held Krush.13, an event headlined by three Krush vs Europe fights.

In the night's main event, K-1 -63kg 2011 Japan Tournament champion Yuta Kubo defeated France's Tristan Benard by knockout, 52 seconds into the 3rd round. Kubo seems to have controlled the fight completely, on his way to a decision victory before putting the Frenchman away. The win is a 7th straight for Kubo and his 12th win in his past 13 fights, with his sole loss coming in the finals of the K-1 -63kg 2010 Tournament to Tetsuya Yamato. Kubo was guaranteed a spot in a possible -63kg World Tournament, but with K-1's sale and transition into the current FIKA, Kubo's future is unknown. It is likely that he will be seeded into the round of 32, though as one of the hottest fighters in the division at the moment, he may not have much trouble fighting his way through another qualifying tournament.

In the second Krush vs Europe fight and what may have been the closest, Krush 60kg champion Hirotaka Urabe was taken the distance by Mike's Gym product Maik Redan, but Urabe came out on top on scores of 30-28(x2) and 30-27. Urabe was able to win a clear decision, but not without resistance from the young fighter. At just 17, Redan looks to have a bright future training out of Mike's Gym, but the challenge of the Krush champion was too much for him this early in his career. For Urabe, it's a 6th straight win and it is likely that he will defend his title soon. Good options for defenses are RISE champion Kosuke Komiyama, whose challenge was dismissed by Urabe, or the winner of the Krush Supernova tournament semifinal match between Masaaki Noiri and HIROYA.

In the final Krush vs Europe fight, Krush 55kg champion Shota Takiya overwhelmed the UK's Damien Trainor en route to a 3rd round stoppage, 53 seconds into the round as a result of a flying knee. It's a 7th straight for Takiya who is a real force at 55kg. A third fight with Ryuya Kusakabe for the Krush title would be a great rubber match and would be a great addition to any Krush card.

Also on the card, Team Dragon prospect Hideaki Yamazaki picked up his 4th straight win with a first round knockout of Hayato Hatakeyama, while Krush regular NOMAN picked up a 2nd round KO and MMA fighter Daisuke Endo continued his kickboxing career with a draw. {jcomments on}

Shoot the Shooto/Shooto the Shoot Results: Souwer Gets Revenge, "Lion" and Bovy Score Upsets

Over the last 2 days, Shooto and Shootboxing held their two co-promotional events, with a rematch between Andy Souwer and Toby Imada, as well as Shootboxing vs MMA fights between Hiroki Shishido and "Lion" Takeshi Inoue, as well as Hiroaki Suzuki and "Wicky" Akiyo Nishiura headlining the Shootboxing card, with a Flyweight title fight between reigning champion Junji Ikoma and Mikihito Yamagami headlining the MMA card.

In the main event of today's Shootboxing card, 2-time K-1 MAX champion and 3-time S-Cup champion Andy Souwer avenged a massive upset loss to MMA fighter Toby Imada from last year's S-Cup semifinals by unanimous decision on scores of 30-24 and 30-25(x2). I believe Souwer was able to score downs in rounds 1 and 2 while Imada was unable to score any throws on Souwer, which was the key to Imada's victory last November. The win is nice for Souwer who recently fell in the semifinals of the It's Showtime Fast and Furious tournament to Artur Kyshenko. Souwer doesn't currently have any fights set, though he could be an option for Dream's New Year's Eve event. For Imada, a rematch with Hiroki Shishido or an MMA fight in Bellator are options.

In the co-main event, former Shooto Lightweight champ "Lion" Takeshi Inoue scored an upset over Shootboxing star Hiroki Shishido by close majority decision on scores of 30-29(x2) and 29-29. Inoue scored a shoot point in the third round which ended up being the deciding factor. The win is Inoue's 4th straight as he was on a 3-fight win streak in MMA with consecutive TKO wins over Taiki Tsuchiya, Koichiro Matsumoto and Caol Uno. Up next for Inoue could be a fight with Tatsuya Kawajiri should Kawajiri not get an immediate shot at Hiroyuki Takaya or a possible rematch with Kazayuki Miyata. The loss is Shishido's second straight as he lost to Toby Imada back in June. Shishido has been a bit shaky as of late, going 4-5 in his last 9 fights and with back to back losses to MMA fighters, Shishido could see his relevancy, in terms of competition, be diminished, although as one of Shootboxing's biggest draws, he could continue to face top-level fighters.

The other major MMA vs Shootboxing fight that took place on the card was #1 ranked Shootboxing Super Featherweight Hiroaki Suzuki defeating Shooto and Dream veteran "Wicky" Akiyo Nishiura by unanimous decision on scores of 30-27(x3). Nishiura's unorthodox striking was not enough to overcome Suzuki, who is now on a 3-fight win streak and now has wins over 4 MMA fighters in his Shootboxing career. Suzuki's next fight could be a rubber match with Tomohiro Oikawa for the Shootboxing Super Featherweight title. The loss moves Nishiura to winless in his last 4 fights with losses to Caol Uno and Mitsuhiro Ishida in MMA and a draw to Tetsuya Yamato in K-1.

In the night's biggest upset, Shootboxing convert Bovy Sor Udomson took a clear cut decision win over It's Showtime and K-1 fighter Gago Drago on scores of 29-28 and 30-28(x2). Udomson is now on a 2-fight win streak after losing 4 straight, although he did not look very good in his last fight with Toby Imada. For Drago, it's a sixth straight loss in a career that has been characterized by extreme inconsistency. He has a fight with Hinata on January 28th at the big It's Showtime event.

Swiss-born Japanese transplant Christophe Pruvost managed to pick up a decision win over former boxer turned kickboxer Satoru Suzuki, Team Souwer's Henri Van Opstal picked up a win over Pride and UFC vet Akihiro Gono, MINA picked up a win over Emi Fujino and Rena's younger sister MIO picked up another win in Shootboxing.

In the Shooto portion of the event on Saturday, Shooto legend Rumina Sato was knocked out in the first round by Team Souwer's Nico Verresen. For Sato, it's a bit of a disappointment as this was only Verresen's second MMA fight.

In Shootboxing action, Kazuyuki Fushimi defeated Shooto fighter Junji Ito by decision and Shootboxing Japan Featherweight champion Naguranchun Masa M16 defeated Shooto fighter Fumihiro Kitahara by 1st round KO.{jcomments on}

It's Showtime Japan/REBELS.9 Results: Masahiro Yamamoto Earns It's Showtime 61kg Title Shot

Earlier today at Differ Ariake, It's Showtime Japan and REBELS copromoted their second event together, It's Showtime Japan 4 and REBELS.9, headlined by an It's Showtime 61kg MAX #1 contender's bout.

In the main event, former AJKF Featherweight champion and 2009 Krush Lightweight GP winner Masahiro Yamamoto defeated former RISE 60kg champion Kan Itabashi for a second time on the strength of a 3rd round flying knee knockdown by unanimous decision on scores of 30-27(x3), 30-28 and 29-28. The win puts Yamamoto back on a 2-fight win streak and makes him the #1 contender for the It's Showtime 61kg championship, currently held by Javier Hernandez. The last time the two met Yamamoto was on a 5 fight win streak, including his Krush tournament win, winning 10 of his last 11 fights while Itabashi was riding an 8 fight win streak including back to back title defenses of his RISE belt over TURBΦ and Keiji Ozaki. Yamamoto won that fight by unanimous decision, but went on a 4-fight winless streak immediately after before defeating Arita Tsukahara to earn the right to face Itabashi. Itabashi won his place in this fight by defeating Genki Yamamoto at the first It's Showtime Japan event in what turned out to be Genki's last fight. This win restores a lot of momentum for the 28 year old Masahiro Yamamoto that had been lost over the past year and a half. His matchup with Hernandez should be an extremely entertaining fight. Hernandez is set to take on former 61kg champion Sergio Wielzen, who defeated Yamamoto, in a non-title fight in Spain at It's Showtime 53 on November 12th.

In the co-main event, Hinata was able to defeat South Korean fighter Baek Min-Cheol via a body kick KO at 1:01 into the first round. For Hinata, it is a bounce back from his one-sided loss to 70kg kingpin Giorgio Petrosyan as well as a tune up for his fight at the big It's Showtime January 28th show against Gago Drago.

WPMF Japan Welteweight champion Daiki Watabe picked up a much needed win with a unanimous decision over former J-Network Super Lightweight champion Tomo Kiire on scores of 29-27(x2), 29-28 and 29-26(x2). Watabe was riding a two fight losing streak with a loss to Chi Bin Lim in RISE as well as a loss to T-98 at the first It's Showtime Japan event. Up next for Watabe could be a defense of his WPMF title against newly crowned J-Network Welterweight champ Masato Otake who is looking to be one of the hottest prospects in Japan at the moment.

In REBELS action, WPMF Japan Featherweight champion Yosuke Morii picked up a 3rd round KO win over a Lumpinee ranker. If Morii continues winning and Genji Umeno wins his next fight for the WPMF World title, the two could meet each other with the WPMF Japan and World titles on the line as well as a spot in the Lumpinee Stadium feathweight rankings. {jcomments on}

J-Network Results: Undefeated Otake Claims Welterweight Title

On the 16th at Korakuen Hall, J-NETWORK held an event which featured a Welterweight title fight as well as a Super Bantamweight title unification fight.

In the night’s main event, undefeated Masato Otake improved to 9-0, capturing the J-Network Welterweight title from former champion Atsushi Sasatani by unanimous decision on scores of 50-47(x3). Sasatani won the title against Tomo Kiire in October of last year and this was his first defense. Otake earned the right to fight for the title by defeating former K-1 Koshien fighter Kohei Nishikawa in August. Otake should be an interesting fighter to watch going forward as he has faced little resistance on his path to the title. I would liken him, as a prospect, to Takafumi Morita as he captured a major promotional title within 11 fights and they have a common opponent in Nishikawa. However, Morita took a big step up in his following three fights as well as knocking out Nishikawa in the first round while Otake took him to a decision. Otake has a few options going forward as he could defend his title against #1 ranked Tomo Kiire or he could set his sights on the WPMF or WBC Japan titles.

In a Super Bantamweight title unification bout, reigning champion Hiroaki Mizuhara defeated interim champ Hidemaru by split decision on scores of 49-47, 48-50 and 50-48. Mizuhara was a part of the Krush 55kg tournament and made it to the semifinals, losing to Ryuya Kusakabe by decision and this win is his first successful defense. Hidemaru won the interim title back in June by unanimous decision. Next could be a rematch between the two, but with a relatively strong weight class, Mizuhara could find himself fighting WPMF Japan Bantamweight champ Ichinohe Sota while a good matchup for Hidemaru would be against Takayuki Umehara in a fight that would have J-Network and WPMF Japan implications.

Finally, in a matchup of Krush regulars, Junpei Aotsu defeated DYNAMITE Yuta by unanimous extension round decision on scores of 10-9(x3) after a majority draw with scores of 29-28 and 29-29(x2). In the past 2 and a half years, Aotsu has fought 17 times, going 9-8-1 against a who’s who of Japanese Lightweights the likes of Masahiro Yamamoto, Fire Harada, Yuta Kubo, Masaaki Noiri, TaCa, Arita Tsukahara and TURBΦ. Aotsu is currently on a 2-fight win streak. DYNAMITE Yuta scored a big upset in the quarterfinals of the Krush 63kg tournament with a first round knockout of former K-1 63kg posterboy Daisuke Uematsu, but lost to Koya Urabe in the semifinals. {jcomments on}

Krush Supernova Tournament Results: Urabe, Noiri, Hiroya, Takahashi Advance to Semis

Earlier today at Shinjuku FACE, Krush held the first two rounds of their Under-22 Supernova Tournament to determine the 4 semifinalists with blocks A and B competing in the afternoon and blocks C and B at night.

During the day in Block A, 2010 K-1 Koshien quarterfinalist Sho Ogawa was able to edge out an extension round decision over Tang Tang Fight Club's Fumiya Osawa, winning the extension round 10-9 on all 3 cards. In the other half of Block A, 2008 K-1 Koshien champion and one of the tournament favorites HIROYA ran through his opponent, Hiroshi Hoshikawa, scoring a knockout just 1:35 into the first round. In the Block A final, HIROYA dominated Sho Ogawa, winning a unanimous decision on scores of 30-27(x2) and 29-26 to advance to the semifinals.

In the other half of the matinee portion of the event, Block B favorite and 2009 K-1 Koshien champion Masaaki Noiri scored a knockout at 1:25 into the 3rd round over Violence. In the other half of Block B, Team Dragon's Daizo Sasaki also scored a 3rd round knockout at 1:24 in the round over Silver Wolf's Shota Fukuda. In the Block B semifinal, Masaaki Noiri scored another knockout, this time 1:42 into the 2nd round to secure his spot in the semifinals against HIROYA.

This fight is a rematch from the 2009 K-1 Koshien semifinals where Masaaki Noiri shocked nearly everyone and made a name for himself with a dominating, entertaining win over HIROYA. The win would be huge for either fighter.

In the night portion of the event, RISE #6 ranked Super Lightweight Shimpei Keita cruised past J-NETWORK's Hiroshi Matsui to take a unanimous decision on scores of 30-28(x2) and 30-27. In the other half of the bracket, tournament favorite Koya Urabe also cruised past Yuta Otaki, taking a unanimous decision on scores of 30-27(x2) and 30-28. In the Block C final, Koya Urabe faced more resistance than one would have thought from Keita, but was still able to defeat Keita on scores of 30-29(x2) and 30-28.

In Block D, Yukimitsu Takahashi edged out Kazuma in an extension round, winning 10-9 on all 3 cards. In what could be considered a bit of an upset, former K-1 Koshien fighter Kengo Sonoda edged out J-NETWORK Flyweight champion Tsukasa Fuji on scores of 30-29, 30-30 and 30-28. Size was likely a factor as Fuji fights about 10kg under the 63kg weight limit for this tournament. In the Block D final, Takahashi caught Sonoda with a hard head kick 25 seconds into the 3rd round and Sonoda was unable to recover, giving Takahashi the KO win.

This sets up a semfinal between Koya Urabe and Yukimitsu Takahashi. Urabe, already the tournament favorite before the brackets were announced, should have his status as tournament favorite bumped even higher. Takahashi showed he is no slouch and Urabe struggled a little with Keita, but Urabe should be able to cruise into the finals while the winner of Noiri-Hiroya will likely be dinged up from the semifinals. However, if the pattern of the Krush tournaments of favorites losing in the later rounds hold, Takahashi could see himself with a big upset win, though I find it more unlikely as Krush tournament champions Shota Takiya, Hirotaka Urabe, Ryuji Kajiwara and Kenta were more overlooked talents while the focus was on fighters like Ryuya Kusakabe, Masaaki Noiri, Koya Urabe and Hiroki Nakajima.

The tournament's conclusion will take place on December 9th and if Naoki Ishikawa gets his way, he will fight the winner of this tournament at some time after that.

Lucrative Wins for Sam A and F16 at Lumpinee Stadium

It's been a good year for Sam A who has beaten all comers with the only exception a dubious draw with Konsak (pretty much everyone except the judges thought Kongsak won) but it got a whole lot better on Friday night.

Like a lot of the best Muay Thai fighters Sam A hails from Buriram in the rural north east which is one of the most impoverished areas in Thailand. As one of the most in demand fighters on the stadium circuit in Bangkok he can expect to receive in excess of 100,000 Baht per fight, more than most people in Buriram earn in a year, but on Friday night he had the prize of a Toyota pick up (valued at 1.7 million Baht according to the announcer) awaiting him if he could defeat Ting Tong.

Ting Tong is sponsored by Isuzu and not wishing to be outdone they also offered him an Isuzu pickup meaning that the winner would be driving home in one of two trucks parked outside the stadium. Sam A won the last time these two fought and Ting Tong the underdog was allowed to weigh in 2 lbs heavier. If the extra weight was an advantage it didn't show as, after the traditionally slow start, Sam A dominated proceedings to win a one sided decision victory.

Sam A ia a very intelligent fighter, who is good at making his opponents miss and then pubishing them with a vicious left body kick. He was up against another southpaw in Ting Tong but the strategy remained the same and was effective enough for him to be awarded the fight 50-47 on all three judge's scorecards.

In the main event 2010 fighter of the year Nong O took on F 16 who was coming off a big win over 2009 fighter of the yeat Kongsak which you can see here (check out the handspeed from F16 as he knocks Kongsak down twice in round two). 2011 has not been a vintage year for Nong O who has lost a few fights and this one had a two million baht bet riding on it.

 F16 looked to be the bigger of the two fighters but Nong O was able to hold his own for the first few rounds. It seemed to be anyone's fight but Nong O faded badly in rounds four or five allowing F16 to outwork and outmuscle him to the extent that the outcome was a foregone conclusion long before the final bell sounded.

A stellar card also saw Singdam and Petboonchu do battle for the third (i think...) time this year. Petboonchu's clinch work has made the difference in the previous two fights but this time it was the turn of the 'black lion' who was able to consistently land body kicks and even managed to more than hold his own in the clinch.

In the fight of the night  Detnarong Wor Sangprapai and Tryjak Sitjomtry went toe to toe right from the opening bell. Most Muay Thai fighters like to star slow but these two started unloading straightaway and it looked set to be a classic until Detnarong got swept in round two and then hit with a knee on the way down which cut him badly and left him needing a ten count to recover.

It seemed that the momentum was with Tryjak but instead Detnarong came storming back, taking the fight to his opponent to win every remaining round despite being covered in blood from a gash above his left eye. A full house at Lumpini erupted and Detnarong celebrated long and hard, even the referee was on the receving end of a kiss much to his surprise.

The first fight of the night saw Ponsanah on the comeback trail. He made a name for himself sue to his aggressive style and solid low kicks which are the trademark of fighters from the Sitmonchai camp but has been out of action for a while after briefly becoming a monk (most Thai men do this at some stage in their lives).

He was up against Yuttachai and took less than a round to destroy his opponent's leg, showing just how effective low kicks can be as a weapon. It was one of the best cards of the year, put on by Petchyindee promotions. A match up between Saenchai and F16 must surely be on the cards soon as the two have never previously met while a rematch between Kongsak (who beat Pakorn Sakyotin recently) and Sam A would also be interesting.

Hiroki Ishii Defeats Aphisak KT Gym for Rajadamnern Stadium Super Lightweight Title

At Korakuen, Hall on the same night that Jomthong Chuwattana defeated Tetsuya Yamato, another high profile Thai vs Japanese fight took place as Hiroki Ishii took on Aphisak KT Gym for the vacant Rajadamnern Stadium Super Lightweight title.

In Ishii's fourth attempt at the title, he was able to defeat Aphisak by unanimous decision and become only the 4th Japanese fighter to win a Rajadamnern Stadium title, with Toshio Fujiwara, Hitoshi Ogasawara and Kozo Takeda being the other 3 to do it before him. Ishii won on scores of 49-47(x2) and 49-48. Reports show that Ishii was able to effectively pressure Aphisak in the later rounds, as Aphisak spent a lot of time going backwards in rounds 4 and 5 especially as Ishii was able to establish his offense. This is Ishii's 4th straight win and puts him undefeated on the year.

The historic win comes in what has been a rather successful year for top level Japanese fighters taking on Thai fighters. Although Yamato lost to Jomthong on the same night, he picked up a TKO win over Coke Chunhawat in back in August in Los Angeles. Genji Umeno managed back to back wins over Thai fighters this year, first a 3rd round KO of Windy Kaiwana Sit-Or at It's Showtime Japan 1 and more recently a 4th round KO of Wutidej Lookprabaht at It's Showtime Japan 3. Finally, Yasuhito Shirasu scored the biggest win for Japan with an upset win over Yodsanklai Fairtex.

The next major Thai vs Japanese fights are at the M-1 Muay Thai event on 11/13 where Genji Umeno takes on Dekkamon Himarai Gym(?) for the WPMF World Super Featherweight Title while Kanongsuk Weerasakreck defends his Light Welterweight WPMF title against WPMF Japan Lightweight champion Arita Tsukahara.{jcomments on}
