    Missed the first few rounds of Ryugo Ushijima (3-0-2, 2) v Taison Mukaiyama (4-2, 3), but looks like it's been a bit of a tear up and Ushijima was in trouble in round 5, and is negative in round 6. He's the guy who had a thrilling 2 round shoot out with Shota Ogasawara in February, then fought to a draw with Koki Kameda's cousin in the East Japan Rookie of the Year in June

    To come on this card we have Tsubasa Koura, Jin Minamde Vs Kazuki Nakajima (God's Left semi final, winner will face Seiya Tsutsumi in January) and Taiki Minamoto Vs Takuya Watanabe (winner will fight for the Japanese Super Featherweight title in the 2020 champion carnival)

    Taison Mukaiyama gets the decision, from what I saw it was deserved, sounded like a split

    Next up
    Yuni Takada (8-4-1, 3) v Toshiki Kawamitsu (3-0)

    Kawamitsu was featured in this week's "introducing" from Asianboxing -

    and was an amateur stand out from the same region as Higa

    1-Pressure from Kawamitsu but nice clean shots from Takada, huge sweeping right from Kawamitsu catches the eye, Takada's shots seem to have more on them and he's landed a few cracking body blows. Clear Takada round on my card, Kawamitsu didn't do nearly enough

    2-This rounds has started a bit quicker and it seems like Kawamitsu is looking to use his size a bit more, but he's being made to pay with Takada landing some crisp shots, both landing to the body but Takada getting the better of it, Kawamitsu just misses with a big right, big body shot from Kawamitsu, and a huge right up top from the unbeaten kid, he takes one but lands one of his own, 2 big body shots from Kawamitsu, and another, trading on the inside. 19-19

    3-More pressure from Kawamitsu and he does appear to be breaking Takada down here, some lovely body shots, Takada is on the retreat a lot now, Kawamitsu still being tagged more than he should be but get the feeling he wants to give us a memorable fight rather than just win. A big head clash (not the first time Kawamitsu has had one of those) and both are cut - Kawamitsu left eye bad cut, Takada right eye, less noticeable, huge left from Kawamitsu rocked Takada, Takada fires back
    29-28 Kawamitsu

    Hell of a fun fight!

    4-For a none puncher and for someone who has looked crisp and intelligent so far in his career Kawamitsu sure is fighting differently here, another head clash and Kawamitsuu told to be careful, trading blows in the neutral corner, body shot from Kawamitsu forces Takada to concede ground

    5-Again all the pressure from Kawamitsu early on, Takada backs up the man from Okinawa with a series of head shots, the pressure is only relieved for a moment, Kawamitsu back on the front foot, lovely left hook from Takada, big head shots from Kawamitsu, Takada is hurt, Takada trying to fire back off the ropes, Kawamitsu fails to to take him out in that wave but he's coming again, Takada backed into the corner, both look like they've pretty much punched themselves out, holy **** was a great round, Takada is pretty much at a standstill and Kawamitsu keeps forcing himself forward, Takada cornered again, he's out on his feet!

    6-Takada showing some energy early on but this is going to be a very long 3 minutes for him, pressure from Kawamitsu, he's marching forward and he rocks Takada, unloading and the referee...jumps in....erm....yeah not sure on the timing of that in fairness, Takada was in a much worse state the previous round....

    Some in ring chit chat about the God's left tournament with the 3 remaining fighters and Shinsuke Yamanaka.

    My understanding is that

    (5-0, 4) will take part in a spar after
    This content is protected
    (14-5, 11) was forced out of their semi final and then Kazuki Nakajima (7-0, 6) will face Jin Minamide (4-0, 3) in the remaining semi

    Before that Yamanaka is going to...toss balls into the crowd

    So Yamashita pulled out and Silem Serang, who was to face Tsubasa Koura, also pulled out at super short notice...and now it appears the camera or something to do with the streaming image has been knocked out

    Teshigawara is scheduled to fight in December and is in decent shape here, but Tsutsumi looks damn fast...and tiny compared to Teshi, who is just playing for the crowd...who are dead....polite applause at the end...

    Oh, wait this has become a 3 round spar and not 2, and round 3 is seeing both let their hands go more, Teshi letting some big shots go, and it draws an "oooh" from the crowd
