Tatsuyoshi decisions Chaiwat in super bantamweight nontitle bout in Osaka

May 19, 2024 13:28 pm

  Juiki Tatsuyoshi of Osaka Teiken Boxing Gym, a son of former legendary World Boxing Council bantamweight champion Joichiro Tatsuyoshi, pounded out an eight-round unanimous decision over Chaiwat Buatkrathok of Thailand in a super bantamweight nontitle fight in Osaka on May 18.

Tatsuyoshi (R) attacks his opponent in 7th round

  Fighting at EDION Arena Osaka’s annex, the 27-year-old Tatsuyoshi, ranked 12th in the Japanese super bantamweight division, cut above his left eyelid in the third round due to an accidental head butt and suffered a cut above the right eyelid in the seventh stanza due to his opponent’s punch.

  Though Tatsuyoshi almost floored his left-handed opponent in the seventh round by landing a straight right to the head, he failed to put his punches together.

  After the fight, his father said, ‘’He (Juiki) absolutely sucks at his boxing. He stood right in front of his opponent. That’s why he was hit with straight lefts (by his southpaw opponent). I think I told him about that. But he failed to do that. If this pattern continues, he will not be able to have a (Japanese) title fight.’’

  With the win, Tatsuyoshi, who is said to aim at the Japanese title challenge this year, extended his unbeaten streak to 16, 10 by knockout, with one draw. Chaiwat fell to a 41-10 win-loss record with 27 KOs.
