Japan’s undefeated 21 year old Kazuto Ioka in only the seventh fight in his career has won the WBC minimum weight title with a 5th round TKO over Thai champion Oleydong Sithsanerchai at the World Memorial Hall in Kobe, Friday.

 

Referee Bruce McTavish called a halt at 1:07 of round five after Oleydong was dropped once in the second and once in the fifth and appeared in no condition to continue.

 

It was the first defeat for the 25 year old Oleydong whose record now stands at 35-1-1 with 13 knockouts.

 

The Thai won the title from fellow Thailander Eagle Kyowa (Den Junlaphan) with a unanimous twelve round decision on November 29, 2007.

 

Ioka who was ranked No. 10 by the WBC was coming off a 10th round TKO of Masayoshi Segawa to win the Japanese light flyweight title last October 10.

 

The world title victory of Ioka may well be a record in terms of the fewest number of bouts before winning a world title from a pre-eminent boxing organization such as the World Boxing Council.

For F*** sake when will Journalists do their bloody job?

Saensak Muangsurin WBC Light Welterweight champion, 3rd fight...

 

WOW, i didn't know that.

 

Do you know why he got a title shot so early on and if he was expected to do so well?

He was a top Thai fighter who turned to boxing. He was matched very hard to started his career (http://boxrec.com/list_bouts.php?human_id=035832&cat=boxer) and pushed quickly. He would become a 2-time champion in only a handful of fights and finish 14-6 including a loss to a very young Tommy Hitman Hearns. Paul Weird became champion in his 6th or 7th fight as well.

 

Whats always amused me was that a few fighters have fought for a world title in their debut, including Radamacher and Rafael Lovera (at least Radamacher had a gold medal in the Olympics...).

 

Interesting bit of trivia ...Kazuto is Hiroki's nephew, the first holder of that very same title....
