In a clash of two undefeated fighters, official challenger Luis Nery (24-0, 18 KOs) scored a sensational TKO victory in the fourth round over Shinsuke Yamanaka (27-1-2, 19 KOs) and took away his WBC bantamweight title in the main event in Japan's Kyoto.
Unbeaten WBC bantamweight champ Shinsuke Yamanaka (27-0-2, 19 KOs) successfully kept his belt as he decked Mexican Carlos Carlson (22-2, 13 KOs) five times and halted him at 0:57 in the seventh round on Thursday in Tokyo, Japan. The 34-yer-old Japanese southpaw, making his twelfth defense, sent him to the canvas—twice in the fifth, once in the sixth and twice more in the final seventh.
World ranked bantamweight contender Carlos Carlson (22-1, 13 KOs) is getting what all boxers dream of, but very few actually realize, a shot at a world title. Carlson, who is based in Tijuana, Mex., will travel to Tokyo, Japan to fight WBC Champion Shinsuke Yamanaka (26-0-2, 18 KOs) on Thursday, March 2.
