Nana Yoshikawa, Sakai, in her first defense of the WBO World female flyweight title, drops the belt via a seventh round technical decision (70-62/69-63/68-64) to Monserrat Alarcon of Mexico. It was the first world title opportunity for the new champion Alarcon who made the most of the opportunity dropping Yoshikawa in rounds one and four. The bout was stopped at the start of the seventh round due to a severe cut sustained by Alarcon from an errant headbutt. With the win, Alarcon improves to (9-3-2), and Yoshikawa drops to (7-2).
