Hard-punching Japanese super-featherweight champ, WBC#8 Kenichi Ogawa (22-1, 17 KOs), 130, impressively kept his belt when he quickly demolished Hirotsugu Yamamoto (20-14-3, 4 KOs), 130, at 2:00 of the second round on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. Ogawa caught the overmatched challenger with a solid right, dropping him in the first round. He, in round two, accelerated his attack and decked him again, and halted the affair with a furious follow-up just after his victim resumed fighting.
