TWO JAPANESE BOXERS CLAIM WORLD TITLES
Compiled By Scott Shaffer

Takashi Miura TKO9 Gamaliel Diaz... In Tokyo on Monday, Japan's Takashi Miura Mexicoís Gamaliel Diaz stopped in the ninth round on Monday to claim the WBC 130-pound title. Diaz was floored in the third and sixth round and was cut from a headbutt. That headbutt caused Miura to be penalized a point. Miura scored two more knockdowns in the ninth round, prompting the referee to end the bout via technical knockout. It was an emotional win for Miura, whose father passed away about a month ago. Miura (25-2-2) was making his second bid for a world title, as he was stopped by Takashi Uchiyama for the WBA version of the title in 2011. Uchiyama still holds the WBA title, so his claim to the world championship must be considered superior to Miura's. Diaz (37-10-2) was making the first defense of the title he had taken from Takahiro Ao last October. source: bangkok post

Akira Yaegashi W12 Toshiyuki Igarashi ... On the same show, Japanís Akira Yaegashi (17-3) won the WBC flyweight championship, beating countryman Toshiyuki Igarashi (17-2-1) via unanimous decision by official scores of 115-110, 116-109 and 117-108. Because the WBC 112-pound title traces its lineage back to Pongsaklek Wonjongkam, Yaegashi can now be considered the lineal world flyweight champion. He is also a two-division titlist because he held the WBA 105-pound title from 2011-2012 before losing a unfification bout to Kazuto Ioka. While Ioka moved up to 108, Yaegashi skipped the junior flyweight division and went to 112 for today's title bout. source: associated press/ washington post
