Toshihiko Era Claims Asian Belt; Nakamura Gets KO Win

By Carlos Costa

Warrior from the Land of the Rising Sun Toshihiko Era (6-1, 5 KO's) scored the most telling win in his boxing career by demolishing Thai boxer Detnarong Omkrathok with a crushing body shot in the fourth chapter to claim the vacant Asian Boxing Federation (ABF) Super Flyweight title at Ram 100 Boxing Stadium in Bangkok, Kingdom of Thailand.

In the co-main feature, Japanese samurai Yuya Nakamura (10-3-1, 7 KO's) of Osaka survived a huge scare in the second round to stop experienced Filipino Rollen Del Castillo (19-17-2, 9 KO's) of Cebu in an intense and quick non-title rumble in the bantamweight division.

Pinned against the ropes and absorbing a rough attack dished out by Nakamura, Del Castillo managed to sneak-in a sharp counter right to the chin of the Nippon boxer rocking him down on his posterior for an eight-second count.  

Once up, Del Castillo pressed the action over the still very groggy, unsteady Nakamura who somehow entered a perfect punch to the Filipino's mid-section propelling him to the canvas flat on his back where he then rolled gassed-out in pain till it was waved off.

The knock out triumph re-inserts Nakamura into the winning column after being vaporized by unbeaten Filipino former WBA interim bantamweight champion Reymart Gaballo (21-0, 18 KO's) last February in Manila.   

This time, Nakamura got his career moving forward, wanting another complicated mission.



In an all-Thai duel, 112-pounder Awirut Chaladloes (6-2-1, 4 KO's) of Suphan Buri in eastern Thailand ravaged with crushing combinations his unheralded compatriot Jirapat Jorajan (3-12, 2 KO's) of Bangkok for a devastating round one knockout win.

In women's boxing, French flyweight lady Loetizia Campana (4-5, 1 KO) brutalized in two rounds rookie boxer former muay thai combatant Chuleeporn Konthon for a TKO victory in the second chapter.

Promoters for the exciting knockout-filled fighting show were Thai man of boxing Supanat Chanram in association with Filipino promoter Brico Santig of the Highland Boxing Team.     The busy ring doc was Dr. Jirasak Bubpachart.
