Photos: Ioka Wins a War With Alvarado To Retain Title

Kazuto Ioka ended the year in style in Osaka, Japan. Ioka held on to his WBA light-flyweight belt by defeating Felix Alvarado of Nicaragua over the full distance. Ioka also kept his unbeaten record, moving to 14-0; 9KOs by out-fighting Alvarado, who suffered his first defeat as a professional in dropping to 18-1, with 15 wins inside the distance. The scores were 119-110, 119-109 and 115-113. Photos by Sumio Yamada/WBA

Ioka held the WBC and WBA minimumweight titles before moving up to light-flyweight to claim the WBA belt on December 31 last year. He stopped Jose Alfredo Rodriguez in the sixth round to take over the vacant title.

I wanna see Ioka vs. Gonzalez, Juan F. Estrada or a rematch against Yaegashi at 112 lbs.

The fight was fun to watch. It was beautiful the way Ioka fought. Never thought I'd see the kid get so good so fast.
