Japan?s Kunitaka KO?s Romie

11 Dec 2009


Japan has won its first WBC MUAYTHAI International Title when courageous warrior Kunitaka Fujiwara shot down USA?s Romie Adaza in the super batamanweight championship at the King?s birthday event staged by promoter Dennis Warner at Buffalo Bill?s Hotel and Casino in Primm, NV, on 5 December.

Kunitaka won the title after being knocked down in the first round after Rommie used precision to deliver a sudden short, hard head punch.

The Japanese contender immediately got up and, abandoning any hesitancy, launched a sustained attack that had the Vegas crowd roaring. Kunitaka turned into a relentless 122-pound human wrecking ball. After rising from the canvass Kunitaka dominated the latter stages of the first round and went on command the contest with a barrage of Muaythai weapons that included hard elbow strikes from all directions lacerating and stamping several lumps on Romie?s head.

Kunitaka used his elbows in almost every exchange after the knockdown, and the fight was stopped in the fourth round due to a vertical laceration over Romie?s eye. To Romie?s credit he never gave up despite the damage inflicted on him.

The Japanese contender showed an aggression that gives him a chance of becoming the first undisputed WBC MUAYTHAI world champion.

In the main event Thai superstar Sitprapom Malaipet had little trouble dealing with James Cook to retain his WBC International Super Welterweight belt.

Maliapet totally eclipsed Cook but Cook had some good moments. Malaipet was right in the zone all night and made his Muaythai technique look easy much to delight of his many fans.

Kevin Ross proved too strong for Chike Lindsay winning the US Welterweight Title convincingly on points. Technically Ross had all the weapons to coast through the fight although to Chike?s credit he did fight back in the fifth round.

In another championship Chaz Mulkey KO-ed Bryce Krause in the first round to win the USA Super Welterweight Title in a contest many judged as the night?s best.

Shawn Yarborough totally dominated over Manson Gibson to win USA Light Heavyweight Title when Gibson did not answer the bell for the third round.
