Review: 2011-11-06, pleasant fight with four knockdowns between Shinsuke Yamanaka and Christian Esquivel. In the sixth round Yamanaka knocks down Esquivel but in the seventh is the Mexican that surprises the Japanese. The fight ends in the eleventh round when Yamanaka knocks down Esquivel two times winning the vacant WBC bantamweight title. The undefeated Shinsuke Yamanaka (14-0-2) entered as the No.6 bantamweight in the world while Christian Esquivel (24-2-0) entered as the No.10. Yamanaka vs Esquivel was on the undercard of Takahiro Ao vs Devis Boschiero. Watch the video!
