Kenshiro Teraji TKO9 Hekkie Budler... Kenshiro Teraji defended his WBA and WBC light flyweight championships with a technical knockout over South Africa's Hekkie Budler on Monday. The Japanese Teraji had to go all out at the Ariake Arena in Koto-Ku to defeat Budler, a former champion at 105 and 108 pounds. As expected, Budler came out strong, putting immense pressure on Teraji and the pace of the fight was frantic with fierce exchanges and good moments for both fighters. The champion relied on his punching power to chip away at the visitor despite taking punishment in the process. Teraji endured tough moments, buthe knew how to fight on the ropes and in the end managed to take Budler down and reduce him to a condition that forced the referee to stop the action (perhaps a bit prematurely). The champion had another brilliant performance and left his record at 22 wins, 1 loss and 14 knockouts. Budler dropped his record to 35 wins, 5 losses and 11 knockouts.
