WBC female flyweight champion Go Shindo (14-2, 9 KOs), 112, successfully retained her belt as she controlled the action from the outset, accelerated a two-fisted attack and finally halted #11 Kledpetch Lookmuangkan (6-3, 1 KO), 110.5, with a barrage of unanswered punches at 0:19 of the eighth round on Sunday in Wakayama, Japan. Shindo, 26, looked impressive and improved with sharp combinations to the Thai southpaw, who gamely retaliated despite her absorption of Shindofs stronger combinations. Steadily piling up points in every session, Shindo went all out for a finish in the seventh, which Thai judge Anek Hongtongkam tallied 10-8 for the champ though there were no knockdowns therein. Shindo registered her second defense since she captured the WBC throne by dethroning Hungarian lefty Renata Szebeledi a year ago. Shindo once failed to win the same belt from the then WBC ruler Mariana Juarez of Mexico by a controversial split verdict (96-95 and 96-94 for Juarez, 97-93 for Shindo) in Los Angeles in 2012, but now reigns as the flyweight champ of the WBC to her credit.

Former WBA 105-pound champ Etsuko Tada (13-1-2, 3 KOs), 105.25, returned to the ring warfare and displayed her good form in stopping Thailander Ratsada Sor. Worapin (7-6-1, 1 KO), 107.5, at 1:14 of the eighth and final session. Tada, a fast-punching southpaw, had swept all rounds prior to the stoppage and battered her with her quick combos in the fatal round.
