Was this a robbery or competitive enough to be "understandable"?

Ioka is the bigger star & younger expected to do greater things, looks like they ****ed Yaegashi over.
I felt it was closer personally, a round or two either way or a draw type result...though I can see why some feel Yaegashi won clearly.

A draw at best to be honest.

Ioka wins by split decision.
Sorry, UD.

The 115-114 card was for Ioka as well.

I'm not sure I'd call it a straight up robbery.
There was a LOT going on in each round and they just kept trading blows. Pretty much each round was really close, as both did good work throughout.

Both guys fought like champions; Yaegashi was the better man on the night (er, morning)

Granted, the crowd was a bit partisan with their "AKIRA! AKIRA! AKIRA!"* chants, but they were mainly there to support a Japanese unification match and were showing appreciation at times for both.

I don't think they had undue influence on me...or anyone who scored it for Yaegashi. The cheers and collective gasps came about because Yaegashi was indeed pulling some straight up boss moves, landing hurtful blows threaded between daredevil stunts where you were never exactly sure he'd land on his feet.


* (surprised no wisecrack'rs started in with a "Tetsuo!/Kineda!" call-and-response chant...)

Looks like a closer fight than I thought, gonna give it a watch when its uploaded.

Akira always comes to fight, shame he had to lose this. Hope he gets a rematch if Ioka decides to stay in the weight class.

I wish we could get these fights here in North America instead some of the snooze fests I see. Japanese Boxing in general tends to have good, entertaining scraps.

Which was your even round?

There are a couple I could imagine qualifying.

Man I wished I watched this one live, I knew it was gonna be good, and can't believe it went 12.

Ioka pulled it out like I expected, but I figured his best shot of winning was by tko/ko. But he proved he's continuing to get better by going the distance and winning decision when a ko won't come. Good shit.

I thought he lost clearly, but he did show a lot of poise in the face of some very heavy & awkward pressure...stood up to some ferocious head and body shots...and closed the show by nutting up and convincingly taking the 12th with an extremely high work rate in spite of his fatigue.
