Felix Alvarado: I Feel Did Enough To Beat Kazuto Ioka

By Pablo Fletes, notifight.com

Felix Alvarado (18-1, 15KOs) believes that he did enough to win the New Year's Eve battle with WBC junior flyweight champion Kazuto Ioka (14-0, (KOs), which took place in Osaka, Japan. After twelve rounds, the scores were 119-109, 119-109, 115-113 in favor of the champion. Alvarado made it a war and had his moments, but the three judges did not feel he did enough to take the title from the hometown champion.

"I'm happy with the fight I had in Osaka, but I am also discouraged by the result. I know I could given more in the fight, but some things happened that affected me with my performance," said Alvarado.
 
"I did more and deserved the victory. I did everything humanly possible to win and I think I did. At the very least I deserved a draw. What happens is that it is difficult to fight in another country and the judges get carried away because of the crowd. I connected on Ioka with combinations of four punches and everyone was silent, but he connected with two punches and people screamed. I feel that the judges got carried away by the crowd."

"Ioka is a great fighter, but I feel I won that fight. I'm not a loser. I bet if that fight was in Nicaragua I would have won. Ioka fought on his land, but I feel happy and motivated amid this unjust defeat.

Alvarado showed a good account of himself and maybe won a few more rounds than the two judges had it wide for Ioka, but the fight wasn't that close. There were many competitive rounds and Alvarado was clearly throwing more…

When a guy uses those words that they feel or think they "did enough" you know even if they think they did that they aren't even sure about it. IMO.

Sorry Alvarado but you've got to be kidding me. Ioka gave you a boxing lesson. He answered every question you posed and finished off on top in very exchange by landing cleaner more accurate punches. In fact at the end…
