Results from Phoenix Battle show

Earlier today Ohashi put on their latest show under the Phoenix Battle banner. The card was their third in the space of about 8 weeks and was very much a developmental card, featuring 3 of their promising and unbeaten prospects. Although not a huge event it was a notable one, and it will have the fights aired this coming weekend on Fuji TV.

With that out of the way we will get on to the result, so if you wish to watch the broadcast on Saturday night/Sunday morning, local time, without having the bouts ruined please stop reading now. Otherwise we'll get on to the results. 

The first of the notable prospects in action was 20 year old Katsuki Mori (7-0, 1) [森且貴], who successfully stepped up to the 6 round limit with a comfortable win over the much more experienced Yuki Uchida (7-8, 1) [内田 勇気]. The bout was Mori's first since winning the Rookie of the Year last year and he looked the boss through out, but was forced to work and cedit goes to Uchida for being the type of test Mori needed.

Although wonderfully talented Mori certainly needs time to mature and grow into his man strength. He's skilled but his lack of power may be an issue when he steps up, but he has looked incredibly good since he turned professional and took another good step forward here.

The second bout saw Lightweight hopeful 
Katsuya Yasuda (7-0, 4) [保田 克也] extend his unbeaten record with a clear 8 round decision win over Japanese based Venezuelan Omrri Bolivar (8-4, 3). Yasuda managed to control the distance well here, despite Bolivar trying to get inside, and was mostly fighting to a defensive gameplan based around counters. It was a gameplan that worked well for Yasuda who looked in control through out.

After the first two prospects went the distance it was the turn of the big punching 
Kazuki Nakajima (9-0-1, 8) [中嶋一輝], who managed to make a statement in blowing away Kenta Nomura (7-4, 3) [野村健太] in the third round. Nakajima looked like he had a point to make, and found his rhythm quickly before going through the gears. In round 3 he dropped Nomura twice, forcing the referee to stop the bout after the second knockdown, which was a brutal one.

After the bout it was suggested that Nakajima would challenge for either the JBC or OPBF Bantamweight title in 2021, which would be a good step up. It's unclear if that title fight will be at Bantamweight, where he has fought in the past, or Super Bantamweight, where he fought today.
