Japan’s Katsunari Takayama has regained the IBF minimumweight title with a unanimous twelve round decision over Mario Rodriguez in Sinaloa, Mexico.

All three judges had Takayama the winner with two judges giving the win to the ALA Promotions fighter by  scores of 119-109 and 117-111 while the third judge had a much closer scorecard of 115-113.

Takayama first won the title with a unanimous twelve round decision over Isaac Bustos in Osaka, Japan on April 4,2005 but lost in his first title defense to Eagle Kyowa (Den Junlapan) on August 6, 2005.

ALA Promotions president Michael Aldeguer was pleased when we informed him about the result. He said Takayama is a good fighter and only lost to Joyi because “its hard to win in South Africa.”

The 29 year old Takayama improved his record to 25-6 with 10 knockouts while the 24 year old Rodriguez nicknamed “Dragoncito”  dropped to  15-7-4 with 11 knockouts.

The Mexican was coming off a  big 7th round knockout over Nkosinathi Joyi last September 1 while Takayama had lost to Joyi by a unanimous twelve round decision in South Africa on March 30, 2012.

In his last fight Takayama lost a twelve round split decision to Filipino Mateo Handig for the vacant IBF Pan Pacific title.

Takayama was a lot more active than Dragoncito ... The cards were way too wide, but I still had Takayama winning.
