by Ronnie Nathanielsz

Super flyweight Ardin Diale has scored a 7th round TKO win over Yota Hori in Tokyo but Philippine super featherweight champion and Oriental Pacific Boxing Federation No. 5 Ryan Sermona lost by a 3rd round knockout to former OPBF super featherweight champion and KO specialist Masao Nakamura in Osaka, Japan.

With the win the 24 year old Diale improved to 21-8-3 with 8 knockouts while 26 year old southpaw Hori dropped to 9-2-2 with 6 knockouts.

Diale was coming off a twelve round unanimous decision loss to Thailand’s  Petchbarngborn Kokiet Gym in a clash for the vacant WBO Oriental title last June 14 whie Hori had won his last two fights by TKO.

Nakamura once again demonstrated his punching power when he caught Sermona with a vicious body shot to drop the Filipino for the full count at 2:40 of round three after dominating him most of the way.

The 25 year old Nakamura who won the OPBF title with a 5th round TKO of Allan Tanada in December 2010 but lost the crown in a stunning 1st round knockout to Ronald Pontillas on May 7, 2011 moved to 16-1 with all sixteen wins coming by way of knockouts while southpaw Sermona fell to 15-3-5 with 8 knockouts.

Sermona had won the vacant Philippine title with a 5th round technical decision over former world title challenger Balweg Bangoyan last March 16.
