Murata did do better in the rematch with N'Dam, IIRC. Again, I'd hate to be the coach that has to come up with a gameplan for Murata, though.

Okay, found one. Not great because it goes blank white, but it's working on Chrome (switched from Edge).

Didn't know Shiro was on the card. Completely forgot about this fight, BTW. Good stuff since I"m actually up anyways

Competitive first round. Taconing had success to the body and some with that straight he throws. Very awkward fighter. I'd say Shiro edged it.

1-0 Shiro.

By the way, on the undercard Joe Noynay (18-2-1, 7KOs) upset Olympic 2012 Bronze Medallist Satoshi Shimizu with a sixth round stoppage. Shimizu was 8-0, 8KOs going into the fight, having successfully defended the OPBF featherweight title four times.

Very competitive fight. Taconing got some good shots on Shiro early, faded mid-round, but I think he came back to win the round late. Shiro's jab will probably win him the fight if he keeps composed and sets up punches with it like he's doing.

1-1

Shiro pulling away before the clash of heads. He's still taking some big shots from Taconing, though.

2-1 Shiro

Shiro keeping Taconing on the edge of his punches well now. They're still brawling some on the inside where Taconing is getting some good shots in. Still, Shiro is pulling away at this point.
