ADACHI OUTSCORES HASHIMOTO IN OSAKA; APR. 9, 1998
Unbeaten lefty local prospect Kenji Ryuki, 125 3/4, extended his unbeaten mark to 4-0, 2 KOs, as he bloodied the nose of Korean Yangkeun Chun, 125 3/4, in the 3rd and sent him sprawling to the deck for the count at 2:12 of the 4th canto in a semi-final 10. Ryuki, with a fine amateur record of 28-4, landed his favorite southpaw right hook to the jaw of Chun, who fell down with his head bouncing on the canvas. Chun barely stood up but a towel came fluttering to his rescue. Chun, 8 years his senior at 29, impaired to 4-7-3, no KO.
This card was dedicated in commemoration of the recent retirement of
ex-OPBF feather champ Tsuyoshi Harada, who had an ambitious and
unsuccessful crack at the WBC super-bantam throne against Daniel
Zaragoza only to be stopped in 7 lopsided frames on Jul. 20, 1996. It
was his final appearance. His overall record was 20-2, 11 KOs.
Tsuyoshi, the son of his father/manager/trainer Jitsuo Harada, will
assist his father's gym as assistant trainer. Good luck.
