Review: 2014-02-22, simply one of the best knockouts of the year: Akifumi Shimoda vs Marvin Sonsona gets four stars. Akifumi Shimoda entered this fight with a professional boxing record of 28-3-2 (12 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.18 featherweight in the world, he suffered his last defeat in 2011 when he faced Rico Ramos losing also his WBA super bantamweight title (=Ramos vs Shimoda).
His opponent, Marvin Sonsona, has an official record of 17-1-1 (14 KOs=82%) and he entered as the No.52 in the same weight class, he is 23 years old (six years younger than Shimoda) and like the Japanese, he also won a world belt (WBO super flyweight title) in the past years but when he tried to move up in weight class to the super bantamweight division, he lost to Wilfredo Vazquez Jr (on February 27, 2010). Shimoda vs Sonsona is valid for the vacant WBO International featherweight title and it is on the undercard of Zou Shiming vs Yokthong Kokietgym. Watch the video and rate this fight!
