Default Re: The Future of CUBA in the Pros, by Weightclasses. (List Inside) ***UPDATED/VIDEO*
Bright Japanese prospect, unbeaten 21-year-old WBC#7/WBA#9 light-flyweight Kazuto Ioka (6-0, 4 KOs) (left), 108, impressively acquired the vacant Japanese national 108-pound belt as he displayed a scientific way of fighting in hitting without getting hit, floored OPBF/JBC#1 Masayoshi Segawa (19-3, 8 KOs), a durable southpaw, in the third and was finally awarded a TKO win because of the latter’s bad gash caused by a legal shot at 1:57 of the tenth and final round on Sunday in Osaka, Japan.
After his victory Ioka, now coached by Cuban trainer Ismael Salas, was congratulated by current WBA feather champ Yuriorkis Gamboa who visited Osaka to see another pupil of his entrenador Salas. Ioka is said to have an ambitious shot at the WBC light-fly throne against Omar Nino in this coming December.
