Inoue Jr. and Hiraoka recorded by knockout, Prospect Takei performed brilliantly


Ariake ArenaTokyo, Japan. In the super light weight limit (up to 63.5 kg) Andy Hiraoka (22-0, 17 KOs) from Japan knocked out
Min Ho Jung (13-4-2, 3 KOs) from South Korea.

The prospect did not look bright, but he did his job successfully – with each subsequent round, Jung thought less and less about counterattacks and was soon forced to completely switch to survival mode. By doing this, he greatly facilitated the task of the puncher –

Hiraoka TKO 8.

In the limit of the second bantamweight (up to 55.3 kg), the Japanese prodigy Yoshiki Takei (6-0, 6 KOs) inflicted an early defeat on the seasoned Australian Bruno Tarimo (26-4-2, 5 KOs).

The fighters staged a bright kneading from the starting gong. Tarimo habitually imposed power boxing, Takei moved, countered hard, dropped the guest in the opening round.

Tarimo dangerously walked head first, butted the prospect several times, inflicted a cut near the left eye. He “turned on the bike”, beautifully outplayed on his feet, met with uppercuts, shocked at the end of the 4th round.

In the 8th round, Takei already hit the underdog. He looked tired, breathing heavily. I had to make adjustments to the fight plan – I didn’t rush with series, I tried to knock it down with one blow. Now he’s a piece of cake for the prospect.

In the 11th round, the referee examined the Australian and decided to stop the fight.

Takei TKO 11.

Indeed, a chic avenue. Tarimo had never lost ahead of schedule before.

As part of the show in the featherweight limit (up to 57.2 kg) Takuma Inoue (17-1, 4 KOs) from Japan did not notice the resistance of the Filipino Jake Bornea (14-4-1, 7 KOs).

The underdog picked up blows, but stayed on his feet right up to the 8th three-minute period.
