EX-OLYMPIAN SHIMIZU KEEPS OPBF 126LB BELT


August 17, 2018

TOKYO, JAPAN

2012 Olympic bronze medalist, 5f11h southpaw Satoshi Shimizu, 126, Japan, extended his unblemished mark to 7-0, 7 KOs when he finally caught up with game compatriot challenger Shingo Mukai (15-5-1, 8 KOs), 126, and halted him at 2:43 of the fourth round in a scheduled twelve. Nicknamed gDiamond Lefth, WBC/IBF#6 Shimizu showed his trademark tricky mobility and solid punches upstairs and downstairs so that he effectively weakened the willing mixer Kawamura from Osaka. The lanky Shimizufs long left cross buckled the challengerfs knees and had him kneel down on the canvas. The southpaw Shimizufs follow-up logically prompted the refereefs intervention. Though he is 32 years of age, Shimizu will fight for a world belt by the end of the next year.
