Prediction,

I'm glad Yamanaka will get his rematch against Nery, he deserves it, having been done an injustice in the first fight, he lost, he was stopped fair and square, but not by an honest athlete in a fair fight, so I think not only can team Nery not protest against the rematch, and it being in Japan, which is far, far away from Mexico, they are lucky not to have lost the belt. I hope Nery was fined after he failed that test, and if not, then he should be.

To a degree, I do think fighters who fail drug tests do deserve second chances, and I commend Nery for fighting Yamanaka, who is hardly a high reward, low risk opponent, in his backyard, again.

Yamanaka has never gotten the credit he deserved, 12 world title defences, 6 years as a world champion, all those wins, Moreno, Jamoye, but when he finally fought in a fight which got him some regognition, at age 35, which is very old for a bantamweight, he lost, tough break. This is Yamanaka's last chance I think really, if he loses this, I don't know where he goes, he has had a great career, at his age, having had the career length and amount of fights he has had, retirement isn't a negative thing I don't think, the only thing which is sad to see is the lack of recognition from the public and media which he has suffered as a world champion who defended his belt time and time again.

I doubt Yamanaka's chances in this fight, drugs, cheat tactics aside, it was Yamanaka who took a beating last time, not Nery, the first 3 rounds were very close, both took punishment, at 22-23, I think the blows you take in these step up fights are just the nasty part of what is a learning experience, but it doesn't make you more brittle or less sturdy as a fighter, but for a fighter 10-12 years older, in this case Yamanaka, even more so considering he took more shots and more wear and tear than Nery, it isn't just the sport's hard knocks, it is draining, toll taking, and it puts miles on the clock, even without that fight, Yamanaka has had the longer, more gruelling career, Nery is the younger, fresher fighter, and mentally as well, I think Nery will benefit from the first fight if anything.

I think Yamanaka will be cautious, he'll have more respect for Nery's power, and his tactics, early, will be negative, I think he will aim to use his experience, outbox Nery, but I see Nery bullying a gunshy Yamanaka, managing to back up, out work Yamanaka. Assuming Nery is clean for this fight, I do wonder if his power will suffer, but he is a huge puncher anyway, so I don't think he will struggle in a clean fight against Yamanaka, but it is very hard to say, because nobody knows how and why these fighters take PEDs, how they give them advantages.

I think Nery will be in the driving seat, pretty much from the start, I think Yamanaka will have all the ideas, but he'll lack speed, agility, he'll become predictable, and while Nery can brush off some of his shots, whenever Nery lands one on him, we will see the affects. I think it will be Yamanaka who is fading in rounds 5-6, despite Yamanaka sustaining a lower punch output than Nery, committing, offensively, less. I think Yamanaka will show a lot of heart, he won't quit, he'll try his best, but when you're chin doesn't hold up against punches which hit you clean, when you don't have the resistance to soak up punishment from a heavy handed opponent, there is nothing you can do about it, it is hard to trump youth, it is some advantage in a hard sport like this. I think Yamanaka go out on his shield, but I'll be surprised if he gets to round 9.

I think Nery is a really good fighter, you can't get too carried away I terms of being impressed with a fighter based on one fight, one performance, especially when they fail a drug test, but I still think Nery will be, potentially, a top 10 fighter in 5 years, he has a great future in boxing, there are great fights out there for him even at this stage, I would doubt his chances against Tete, but apart from that, the worst I could say for him in any fight at 118, is that it is a 50/50 fight, I'd like to see him against Butler, Burnett, Inoue might be moving up to 118, what a fight that could be! I think Tete is the best in the division, but these fighters are all in the mix.

Nery stripped of his title on the scales for not making weight. He wasn't even close either, 123 lbs on his first attempt and 121 on his second. So we will have a sanctioned bout between a Super Bantamweight and a Bantamweight. I previously thought Nery would win again and unless he somehow wrecked his body to cut weight while still ending up 3 pounds off, it will probably be an even worse knockout victory for Nery.

Very disappointing, Luis Nery has such raw talent, but he is own enemy, failing drug tests, missing weight, it is not on, it is not good enough. 5 lbs is a massive amount for a bantamweight, he can not complain about losing the belt, and should be heavily fined, I hope Nery isn't another Randy Caballero, a young fighter who impresses, finally makes a name for himself, and then becomes an example of wasted talent.

I hope Yamanaka knocks him out...looks like Nery tried to cheat again having a huge weight advantage. But unfortunately i think Yamanaka's reign is over and Nery will finish him again. Saw some pics of Nery being absolutely drained tho so who knows how the fight goes this time. The PED he was caught for Last time is used for helping with cutting weight and maintaining the power and stamina. I'm absolutely convinced he was on PEDs the last fight now.

Champion97's picture

So do I but I think it is unlikely. I'm not sure about that, it's possible, because how do you miss weight by 5lbs?, that's a lot for a bantamweight, it is a slightly suspicious amount, but bear in mind the financial price he has to pay, and let's not forget he lost his belt, he isn't the first to lose his belt on the scales, happened to Peter Quillin, Randy Caballero, Jezreel Corralles, he must have known that was going to happen.

Like you guys I really want Yamanaka to win and retire a champion given the stuff Nery has pulled. I definitely don't think he missed weight on purpose but like Tough Competitor said it's just a product of him not having PEDs he used previously. His title made him a relevant opponent otherwise he is just a high risk and low reward opponent so he didn't stand to gain anything by missing weight on purpose.

Boxrec says this fight already happened and was won by nery via tko 1:03 into the match...weird. Anywho I say Nery pulls a Canelo vs Khan. If he was trying to cut and still well above the limit, he'd probably come into this fight a damn super featherweight, if he could. I'd like to see Yamanaka beat him down good, but the odds are stacked against him. Nery is going to come in big and already having the advantages of being much younger with less miles on him.

It did happen, fight is available on youtube and such to watch

I looked this fight up and nothing came up. Except the predictions. I posted this, literally like 10 minutes after the fight had just happened. I though the fight was supposed to happening this evening. Boxrec has posted incorrect results before the fight actually happened before. I remember when Horn vs Gary was a 10th round tko 2 hours before the fight even happened. I thought one of the editors made another prediction.

Edit: don't know why it posted my comment 2 times, can't seem to delete it

It's not weird, it's Japanese time.
Everything you say I agree with, but although Nery is a fresh fighter now, he won't be in 10 years, even 8 years, he gets hit a lot, and as he steps up in class, fights guys like Yamanaka, but younger, he will be in hard fights, but up until now, taking punches is part of his style, his lack of the use of his defence hasn't cost him much, I do think Nery is very, very good, and I think he will be in his prime in about 4 years' time.

From an action perspective a good-looking knockout but it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

Seeing a punk who first got high on 'tainted beef' and then come in disgracefully overweight for a championship fight knocking out a faded great fighter brings no joy to me.

The knockdown in round 1 looked awful, Nery rabbit-punched Yamanaka when the Japanese already had his gloves on the canvas. Rabbit-punching a downed opponent...that was two foul rolled in one. Vexingly the referee did nothing about it, not even a warning to Nery.

Yamanaka deserved better than this. He probably took the fight despite Nery being overweight because he knew his days are numbered, he had to take the fight for both the final payday and the final chance at glory.
