Ota-City General Gymnasium, Tokyo, Japan - 20-year-old Naoya Inoue (6-0, 5KOs) made history in Japan, in only his sixth fight, he knocked out two-time world champion, and one of the best in the lower weight divisions, Adrian Hernandez (29-3-1, 18KOs), in six rounds to capture the WBC junior flyweight title. Hernandez had won his last seven after an upset knockout loss (which he later avenged by knockout) to Kompayak Porpramook. Inoue was in control of the action during the contest and dropped Hernandez in the sixth with a big shot. Hernandez made it up and the referee felt he was too hurt to properly defend himself and waved it off.

WBC flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi (20-3, 10 KOs) retained his belt with a ninth round knockout of durable Odilon Zaleta (15-4, 8 KOs) of Mexico. It was a tough fight with Yaegashi winning a majority decision after eight rounds of action, 77-76, 77-75 and 76-76. Up next is a showdown with Roman Gonzalez.

Two-division champion  Roman “El Chocolatito” Gonzalez (39-0, 33 KOs) crushed Juan Purisima (11-3-1, 3 KOs) in three one-sided rounds to set up a fight with WBC flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi.

18 year old Takuma Inoue, the younger brother of Naoya Inoue, outboxed the far more experienced Fahlan Sakkreerin Jr. over eight rounds. Takuma raises his record to 2-0 and Sakkreerin falls to 25-3, 15. The score was 79-73 on all three of the official cards.

[QUOTE=BIGPOPPAPUMP]I believe the story clearly says he made history "in Japan." I believe it is a combination of his age and numbers of fights.[/QUOTE] Number of fights for a Japanese fighter makes sense, but he's not the youngest Japanese fighter to win a title. Hiroki Ioka and Koki Kameda ...

[QUOTE=giacomino]Same question on a different post. To the author: what "history" did Inoue make? Saensak Muangsurin won a belt in his third fight in 1975. Is Inoue the fastest Japanese fighter to win an alphabet belt?[/QUOTE] I believe the story clearly says he made history "in Japan." I beli...
