Hiroto Kyoguchi defeated South Africa’s Hekkie Budler a short time ago in Macao, China.
He did so in some fashion as well.
He stopped him inside the distance via TKO to improve his impressive undefeated record as a pro to 12-0 (9KO) and saw him become the Ring Magazine junior-flyweight champion of the world.
An impressive feat for only his 12th pro fight.
Before the stoppage came he attempted some rather unorthodox moves as well (hat tip to Ryan Songalia who’s provided some excellent coverage from the action in Asia this morning on Twitter):
