WBO female super flyweight champion Ozawa retires from boxing

Oct 29, 2022 17:30 pm

World Boxing Organization’s world female super flyweight champion Tamao Ozawa of Futur Boxing Gym hung up her gloves as she submitted a resignation notice on Oct. 27 to Japan Boxing Commission.
The 37-year-old Ozawa captured the title on My 30 this year by earning a split decision over champion Miyo Yoshida of Misako Boxing Gym.

While Ozawa won the world title in her third attempt, which was a little less than a year when she gave birth to a baby boy, her comment said she decided to leave off her boxing life by putting everything in her proper perspective.

According to Ozwa’s comment, ‘’Thanks to the support of my husband (a pianist), I was able to continue boxing, which paid off in my fight (with Yoshida) in May. I thought I would make a fresh start now. I am happy that I was given a big chance to take a crack at the world title in the end. I have been blessed with many good opportunities through boxing. Thank you very much.’’

Ozawa made a professional debut in August 2011 after fighting as an amateur boxer. She won the Oriental and Pacific Boxing Federation super flyweight title in 2015. She also won the Japanese flyweight title in April 2019. After a three-year hiatus, she successfully challenged Yoshida for the title. She had a lifetime record of 17 wins, including six knockouts, against five losses.
