Prediction,

I think Iwasa is good, but he might be the champion to take on if you want to win a world title, that might not be fair, he is a world champion who has already defended, and is a champion in his own right, just like Roman, Vargas, Dogboe, but whenever he's stepped up to that higher level, he's lost, he was stopped by Shinsuke Yamanaka and Lee Haskins. Iwasa has impressed in his last couple of fights, winning the title, and defending it, he's 28, he may have learned from his losses, be at his best now, and be a very good world level fighter.

Doheny is undefeated, but untested at this level, he hs hd success at PABA level, but he hasn't competed at world level before, he's 19-0, but he's 31, not young for a super bantamweight.

Doheny could be great fighter who hasn't proven himself, but that might be unlikely, and because Iwasa has age and experience on his side.

I think Iwasa wins by UD.

Doheny was the aggressor, but wasn't landing as clean toward the end. Every round was close enough though, that I can't be too upset with the decision.

Doheny impress you?

SalTnutZ1's picture

Eh, he showed a lot of guts and toughness, but he was pretty rough around the edges. Wasn't making the taller, skinnier fighter work on the inside, would charge in and get tied up. When he got inside and did work, he was effective. Neither were big punchers, so they were able to have a few solid exchanges. Good, competitive fight overall. Doheny pushed the pace, but I think Iwasa landed the cleaner, more controlled work overall, especially over the back half of the fight. But, every round was close enough, I can see how it was scored different, though I thought Iwasa at worst had a Draw, and at best 3-4 round lead.

In Japan, seems unlikely there was foul play, maybe the judges being ringside was important, but I don't for a second doubt that your judgement is on the mark!, so maybe the judges were off. Sounds to me from what you say, thar Doheny is good, but not great, and would have a slim chance of winning a unification fight, but still, he got the win, he is the champion now, let's see if he can defend his title.

At 122, who do you think is the best? I think it is one of the quieter divisions, but all it will take is a 118 fighter moving up, a solid prospect like Munguia, Ritson, Davis, who isn't well known just yet, and the division won't be quiet anymore.

SalTnutZ1's picture

I don't think any foul play, but I definitely think the judging was much wider than anyone thought it would be, especially that 117-112. Teddy Atlas at ringside has it 116-113 Iwasa for what it is worth. But as I said, close enough fight, that you were looking for small things to give rounds. You either liked Doheny working the jab and moving forward, or you liked Iwasa boxing from the outside and countering. I think Iwasa outlanded overall, with Doheny outjabbing and losing the power shot battle.

Part of the issue, with fights in Japan and their fans, is how respectful and lowkey they are. There were so many fans from Ireland there, that they were louder in their chants and reactions than the entire Japanese crowd most of the fight, and that could have affected judging at ringside, too.

At 122, of the champions and guys who are already there, I got to give it to Dogboe. His style I think can give the other champs a lot of trouble, and the kid is just tough. And that head of his is so large, you know it can take a punch, haha jk. But seriously, he may be the most skilled of those guys. I don't know if I like any of the current 118 champions if they moved up to 122 other than Inoue, because that power will carry, especially given he is on the taller side for that weight, too. Dogboe v. Inoue would be a great battle. Of the youngins, only guy who comes to mind that peaks my interest in De La Hoya, and that is only because of his name and watching his fight a few times. Have to catch up on more of the prospects around that weight, as I have been digging in on some of the young guys between 147-168, just to see if I find a few to keep an eye on.

Matchroom's picture

I see Roman being able to beat Dogboe, Inoue isn't quite up to Super Bantam yet, he's spending the next year in Season 2 of the WBSS toruney. By the time he makes his way up I see Roman being unified and the man to beat at 122.

Lost all respect for Atlas with the Horn bullying. That jab will win you fights, that's what I was told when I learned to box.

I like to see calm, unbiased countries, personally, but at the same time, I like to see the suuport from fans here.

I agree. Tete?, I think Tete is still the best at 118, followed by Inoue, and talk about tall, Tete is 5'9, Inoue is 5'4, I don't think Inoue is ready for 122, he was a world champion at 108, then again, he was very young, but still, he has already moved up several weights. I was very impressed by De La Hoya on the Golovkin vs Alvarez undercard. Emmanuel Rodriguez, Luis Nery are good young fighters, prospect ages, but aready undefeated and have won world titles. 118 is awesome!

I'm not high on Teddy, he was the ringside commentator though, so he was the only unofficial scorer that I saw, so I just used him as an example of "expert" outlook on the outcome.

I do too, but can't be mad at fans in the UK, as that level of support is great to have, and it travels. My gal always cracks up at the Winter Wonderland chants and Blue Moon(during the old Hatton days), as she doesn't get it, but even she appreciates it when we are watching the fights.

Tete is very good, and very tall, but I don't know how his power would carry up, especially given he is a bit older, and has been through a few more wars in his career. I like him a lot where he is, but wouldn't be mad if he moved up, as he at least has the frame for it. Inoue's biggest defining characteristic to me is his power, and that trait stands out to me above anything anyone else brings to the table at 118. I think he wins that tournament, and could knock everyone out in doing so. If he doesn't win, I think Tete is the next best shot. The odds makers have it listed as, in order of favorite to win to least favorite; Inoue, Rodriguez, Burnett, Tete, Aloyan, Donaire, Payano, Moloney.

Yeah, I need to get into more Nery fights, and more of the prospects from 118-130.
