Ryuya Yamanaka (15-2, 4 KOs) W12 Tatsuya Fukuhara (19-5-6, 7 KOs)
Strawweight title
: 116-112, 115-113 (twice)

Rafael’s remarks: Fukuhara, a 28-year-old southpaw from Japan, won the interim 105-pound belt by split decision against Moises Calleros in February and was later elevated to full titleholder when Katsunari Takayama retired. Making his first defense in his hometown, Fukuhara had difficulties with countryman Yamanaka, 22. Using a speed advantage and crisp combinations throughout the fight, Yamanaka consistently beat Fukuhara to the punch to win a competitive fight. It was his eighth victory in a row since an eight-round split decision loss back in 2014.

Saturday at Las Vegas

Floyd Mayweather (50-0, 27 KOs) TKO10 Conor McGregor (0-1)
