    Tsuyoshi Hamada KO2 Virachart Mahachai

    My first time watching Hamada after reading a brilliant article about him on Asianboxing.com. Here he is against the tough but outclassed Mahachai, who was actually a champion of Muay Thai. Apparently Hamada is a very important figure in Japanese boxing, not just due to his ring exploits but due to his many outside contributions as well.

    Hamada's power is straight up brutish, and Mahacahi seems to recoil with every shot, whether blocked or not. I can't believe this guy was a 140 pounder. He is very physically imposing and ridiculously powerful here. He is also a pretty skilled southpaw, and he threads his punch combinations from head to body very fluidly. Very nice to watch, with a badass boxing style, and a lot of KOs on the record too. Will be watching more.

    R1: 10 - 8 Hamada
    (Hamada knockdown with a brutish clubbing left after threading some awesome combos)

    R2: KO
    (Hamada lands some excellent straight lefts for the dominant finish)

    Tsuyoshi Hamada vs Hikaru Tomonari

    Japanese Lightweight Title

    Hamada Tomonari

    R1: 10 - 9
    Hamada starts aggresively. Tomonari rocked.
    R2: 10 - 9
    Tomonari was very brave in this round against Hamada's power
    R3: 10 - 9
    War here. Much closer round.
    R4: 10 - 9
    Tomonari has got a chin. Always trying to respond. Hamada's power is very thudding.
    R5: 10 - 8
    How the **** did Tomonari get through this? Ref could have stopped it here.
    R6: 10 - 9
    Hamada getting tagged a bit. Gets reckless when in for the kill.
    R7: Stoppage
    Hamada landed a huge left hand after the first knockdown. The ref should have stopped it after the first.

    Notes:
    • How is this 135lbs? They're massive!
    • Hamada well schooled offensively
    • Hamada looks like a gangster
    • Tomonari is a very brave fighter. Never quit, even though he was rocked repeatedly.
    • Hamada has great punching technique and torque
    • Hamada is definitely vulnerable to a skilled boxer with a good right hand.

    Tsuyoshi Hamada VS Romy Cunanan

    R1: KO

    A decently exciting 1 round bout. Both fighters begin to exchange at the very beginning, but Hamada's thudding power quickly takes control, and he ends up KOing Cunanan on a destructive body-shot. Hamada's hair is not even ruffled in this one.

    Tsuyoshi Hamada vs Donny Soriano

    R1: KO (at 2:58)

    Another early career, first round KO from Hamada. Total blowout in a very physical performance. Hamada looks a different weight-class to his opponent.

    Tsuyoshi Hamada VS Rene Arredondo 1

    WBA Light-Welterweight title


    Hamada (Challenger) Arredondo (Champion)

    R1: KO!

    Hamada absolutely destroys in his title shot. He begins extremely aggressively, hurting Arrendondo with his first punch, a huge left hand. Hamada swarms all over him, dodging Arredondo's shots with sublime movement and mauling him against the ropes, landing vicious, thudding body punches. It comes to at the closing of the round. Hamada lands a decapitating right hook, and then finishes him off with an absolutely savage flurry. The referee calls the bout. Arredondo never had a chance here.

    Apparently, Hamada slept 22 hours before the bout because he was apparently over-trained. You wouldn't believe he had suffered a knee injury before, either. All credit to AsianBoxing for hosting the film.

    Yoko Gushiken vs Montsayarm Haw Mahachai
    I hope I watched the right fight? Boxrec calls it KO 4, but in the video round 5 clearly begins and 15?seconds in it is stopped.

    Gushiken is so fun for me to watch, patient, calculated, skilled, solid power.... I am not sure Mahachai could do anything different to make a fight out of this?

    Rd 1 Gushiken patiently stalking and pressing the action continually taking Mahachai to the corners and ropes, scoring and causing him to escape and retreat. Mahachai tried to stay out of range, but that also meant he couldn’t land.

    2-4 Gushiken doing the same, and Mahachai trying to counter and exchange, but he is outclassed. On the few times he does open up, so does his defense and Gushiken comes in underneath and scores inside.

    Not a great fight to watch unless you are merely checking out Gushiken in more detail like myself.

    Gushiken 40-35 at the time of stoppage

    Yoko Gushiken vs Sang Il Jung
    Yoko is so calm and composed! Never seems to get swept up in the moment, and is so precise when breaking an opponent down.

    I would guess over half of his KD’s I have seen come in the final 20 seconds of a round so you need to be prepared to fight 3 minutes of every round.

    In round 3 at the 1 45 point Yoko stuns Jung. But he does not rush in, for a blazing finish. Rather he systematically and methodically breaks him down hurting him again with about 20 seconds left, lands good again but no desperate attempt to finish Jung.

    In 4 he is an assassin, very calculated in his punches, misses with 1 wild hook but his balance and space has him safely out of range of the retreating Jung. Again he slowly stalks forward dropping Jung with 15 seconds left.

    Round 5 Jung has still not recovered and this is over very quickly.

    Yoko is one of the most patient finishers I have seen.

    Yuri Arbachakov vs Muangchai Kittikasem I

    What an absolutely fun fight to watch! Check it out if you have not seen it!

    Yuri has some great foot and upper body movement. Brilliant use of feints to trap and set up Kittikasem here. Some solid quick explosive power as well. His weakness seems to be getting overly aggressive and over eager on offense, especially when Kittikasem seems stunned. Multiple times he aggressively seeks to finish him and/or push for a KD to hard. Leaving himself open to counters and some of Kittikasem best work is rebounding and countering the eager and wide open Yuri. His balance is not the greatest, inspite of his foot speed, he finds himself out of position multiple times, and pays for it in round 3 when he gets dropped. I would like to have seen a calmer finishing touch especially in rd 8. He gets Kittikasem hurt early, but his wild aggression leads to openings and Kittikasem drives him back. Same midway through the round. Again with 45 left in 8 Kittikasem is stunned and looks ready to go. But the aggression again leaves him open. Kittikasem battles back again...when a perfect punch from Yuri knocks him out!!!! Great dynamic explosive punch.

    Valiant display from Kittikasem who battles back in a fight he is clearly losing and rounds 6-8 are very closely contested. Also his recovery between round 1 and 2 was admirable...Yuri launches a punch just prior to the bell, but it lands a fraction of a second after it...dropping Kittikasem but not a knockdown. I do wonder if that unseen (accidental) shot impacted him? Great gritty showing!

    Yuri is a dynamic fun fighter ready to explode at any time, but seemed too willing (or defensively deficient?) to absorb numerous punches that he didn’t seem to need to.

    1-5 Yuri (I scored 3 10-9 the round the we’re both KD’d in)
    6 Kittikasem (commentary has it for Yuri 3-0 with 3 even)
    7 Yuri
    Yuri by KO 8

    Definitely Yuri's most aggressive performance (along with the **** talking japanese, I can't remember his name). Bit of an outlier actually.
