Kenshiro Maintains Perfect Record With Sharp Outing, Beating Hisada in Comfortable Points Victory

Late update, Saturday morning, WBC long-reigning Light-Flyweight titlist 🇯🇵Kenshiro “The Amazing Boy” Teraji (18-0-0, 10KO👊) returned to the ring, and defeated well ranked contender 🇯🇵Tetsuya Hisada (34-11-2, 20KO👊) by Unanimous Decision, as the Champ continues to show improvement in his craft, defending his title successfully for the 8th time.



Hisada came forth with his usual wide base, with legs planted far apart, trying to deliver the power early, and Kenshiro started out bouncing around, figuring out distances. Hisada landed a couple of nice left hooks and right hands, elongating the punches to fit behind Teraji’s defensive positioning.

In the second, Teraji ⌚timed Hisada well, who shot the right hand, with Teraji firing the jab over it, and shooting a right hand of his own down the pike, to put the challenger on the seat of his pants for an 8-count. Hisada got up at the count of 4, and was ready to continue. Since the knockdown, Kenshiro upped his activity level, and got into full fight mode, skipping his usual leveling up approach.

Once Kenshiro turned the jets on, it was abundantly clear that he was a couple levels ahead of his ambitious opponent, and he took control of the fight from that point forth. Hisada has always been a game fighter, so he put the effort forth, and periodically had his moments, but they were too few, and far in between to imprint any real impact on the fight to turn the scorecards around in his favor.

PEW

The bout went the full 🛎️12 round distance, and with official scores of 📝118-109, 118-109, and 119-108, Kenshiro Teraji won by wide Unanimous Decision, and secured the 8th defense of his WBC Light-Flyweight Title. Regarded as the #2 man in the division behind the Light-Flyweight Champion of the World 👑🇯🇵Hiroto Kyoguchi (who holds the Ring-Magazine, and WBA World Titles), one could hope that a super-fight in the division can manifest, one that would also be one of Japan’s biggest fights ever made…hey, we can all hope.
