The biggest action over the weekend took place in Germany and Japan, where there were collectively three world title belts on offer.
On Sunday at Ota City Gymnasium in Tokyo, the WBC flyweight and light fly straps were fought over, with one staying with its owner and the other going home with the challenger.
WBC flyweight king Akira Yaegashi, 20-3 (10), sucessfully made the third defense of the belt he won last year with a ninth round KO of former Mexican champ Odilon Zaleta, 15-4 (8).
Making his first attempt at a world title, the slick Zaleta suffered his second loss in a row and was no match for aggressive former WBA and Japanese minimumweight king Yaegashi, who has won five consecutive bouts.
Mexico's WBC light fly champion Adrian Hernandez, 29-3-1 (18), wasn't so fortunate as his second reign was ended in six rounds by Japan's amazing novice Naoya "Monster" Inoue, 6-0 (5).
In only six pro contests, 20 year old Inoue has captured the WBC, OPBF and Japanese titles.
On Saturday at Stadhalle in Rostock, Germany, Juergen Braehmer, 43-2 (32), retained his WBA light heavyweight title with a sxith round stoppage of ex-WBO cruiserweight ruler Enzo Maccarinelli, 38-7 (30).
