  1. me decepciono este mendoza, lento, golpes sin fuerza, 0 defensa, nada que ver con aquel mendoza, que peleo con melindo. no le quito credito al japones pero tampoco es cosa del otro mundo, pedro guevara, lo knokio en el 7, y eso que tampoco es la gran cosa, muy mal por mendoza.

  2. A fight for 4 starts that really deserves to be watched. Both contenders very aggressive but with a quite different fighting style. Technically speaking the Japanese out boxed Mendoza in spite of being fighting against a southpaw. He was very fast and extremely accurate with his punches fighting with his arms low in a similar style than Sergio Martinez. His lack of power was quite evidently otherwise i honestly believe that Mendoza would never pass the fourth round. Akira won the body punching work also. The volume of punches interchanged by both boxers during the whole fight was incredible and never fade at all. Round 4 the best in terms of body punches and rounds 11 and 12 the more exciting ones. Mendoza was almost knocked down in both of them, he just survived because Akira low pop. Anyhow, Mendoza’s efforts were outstanding because Akira’s eyes were almost fully close at the end of the fight. The judges card were to sided to Akira. In my opinion the closer one was 117-111. The other too much in favor of Akira who really desreves the win.

  3. 4 stars all day for this one.
    Amazing fight and Tango’s review sums it up perfectly.
    The conditioning from both guys was unreal.

    1. Thank you Christoper for supporting the 4 starts but it was really an exceptional fight and for your comment. The guys really were in incredible physical conditions no doubt about it. I’m surprise that the Akira’s record shown 5 loses, he seems to be much better than that.

  4. To ATBF boxing fans please watch this fight which really deserves to be recommended.
    Happy New Year!!!

  5. The referee reminds me of Austin Powers’ Mini-Me!

    Seriously, I definitely agree with my fellow commentators that this needs a 4 stars ratings at least. Very crisp punches from a southpaw-regular confrontation.

    I like how Mendoza showed beautiful sportsmanship after the fight. 3 stars for this fight is an abomination.

    1. Matt as usual you are quite right about the sportsmanship showed by Mendoza. It was excellent and to be honest very unusual which means that he fully recognized that Akira was the winner, a real gentleman.
