Kenichi Ogawa Speaks – This past Saturday night in Las Vegas, Japan’s Kenichi Ogawa defeated Tevin Farmer to grab the IBF world title at 130 pounds.
The American Farmer entered the fight a solid favorite but Ogawa used his high pressure style to score a split decision victory by scores of 112-116,116-112,115-113. Though some in attendance thought the elusive Farmer had done enough to win, it is Ogawa who is going home the IBF world super featherweight champion. The title was vacant after Gervonta Davis failed to make weight for an August title defense.
Here our TBC cameras capture a grateful and happy IBF world champion as he talks to the media post-fight.
