Doheny stops top-ranked Llamido in 1st, retains WBO Asia-Pacific super bantamweight title

Nov 01, 2023 12:03 pm

  Former International Boxing Federation super bantamweight champion TJ Doheny of Ireland stopped the previously undefeated Japhethlee Llamido of the United States in the first round to retain his World Boxing Organization’s Asia-Pacific super bantamweight title for the first time on Oct. 31 in Tokyo.

  The technical knockout of the scheduled 12-rounder at Korakuen Hall came 2 minutes and 28 seconds into the round when the left-handed Doheny landed an overhand left hook to the top-ranked Lamido, also a southpaw, sending the latter down hard to the canvas. Though Lamido managed to wobble to his feet, Doheny swarmed all over him and landed a hard straight left to the head, which prompted the referee to call off the fight.

  With the victory, Doheny, who now resides in Australia and will turn 37 on Nov. 2, improved his record to 25 wins, including 19 KOs, against four draws.

  As for the 23-year-old Llamido, who is well known for his constant sparring with Naoya ‘’the Monster’’ Inoue of Ohashi Boxing Gym, fell to an 11-1 win-loss tally with four KOs.

The Doheny-Llamido fight served as the chief supporting card for the Japanese super bantamweight title match between champion Toshiki Shimomachi of Green Tsuda Boxing Gym and top-ranked Toshiya Ishii of REBOOT.IBA Boxing Gym.’’
