Fujiwara wins Japan female featherweight title by decisioning Miyoshi

Apr 02, 2024 9:59 am

  Challenger Akane Fujiwara of Watanabe Boxing gym eked out a six-round majority decision over Kimika Miyoshi of Kawasaki Nitta Boxing Gym and captured the Japanese female featherweight title on Apr. 1 at Tokyo’s Korakuen Hall.

  It was the second-ranked Fujiwara’s fourth crack at a regional title. Fujiwara challenged Miyoshi in June 2022 for the latter’s title but failed to win the title as they fought to a split draw.

  With the win, Fujiwara, 36, improved her record to six wins, including two knockouts, against three losses and a draw. Miyoshi, 40, failed in her third defense of the title she captured in February 2022 and fell to a 17-15-2 win-loss-draw tally with six KOs.
