Not Inoue! Ogawa lost by knockout in Britain: brutal video


Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff, UK. In the main event of the evening, the IBF featherweight champion (up to 59 kg) Japanese Kenichi Ogawa (26-2-1, 18 KOs) lost by knockout to local prospect Joe Cordina (15-0, 9 KOs).

Before the fight, interesting statistics appeared about Japanese boxers who had championship fights in Europe. It turns out that the record of these meetings is strongly not in favor of the guests – 1 win with 20 defeats, or 1-6 in Britain.

The author of the only Japanese victory is “pound” Naoya Inoue – in 2019 in the semi-finals superseries knocked out a Puerto Rican here Emmanuel Rodriguez.

The fight began with reconnaissance jabs. The Briton is a little more precise, but the striking power behind the champion. 30 seconds before the break, Cordina missed two straight twos.

Ogawa grew bolder, went forward more actively. As it turned out, he was in vain – he yawned the right check-hook, ended up in the hardest knockdown and never managed to get to his feet.
