Becomes WBC bantamweight king via a sixth-round TKO of Mexico’s Alexandro “Peque” Santiago


Japan’s Junto Nakatani became the World Boxing Council bantamweight champion via a sixth-round TKO of Mexican Alexandro “Peque” Santiago at the Kokugikan Arena in Tokyo, Japan.
Tall, rangy Nakatani dominated Santiago throughout the fight, boxing with intelligence and precision.
Santiago was in bad shape following the sixth-round knockdown, but he bravely returned to his feet to continue. However, Nakatani launched himself with a cascade of blows, without response, until sending him back to the canvas again. Santiago’s corner then wisely called a halt.
With this victory, Nakatani, now winning world championships in three weight divisions, improves his record to 27-0, with 20 knockouts, while Santiago is 28-3-5.
