Alvin Tam Vs. Yukihiro Nakamura Result: Tam Loses Via KO

It was a bad night for Cordilleran boxers on June 19 at the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan. In the main event, Jujeath Nagaowa of La Trinidad, Benguet lost via unanimous decision to Momo Koseki of Japan. The fact that it was a championship bout makes the defeat even more painful. Koseki proved to be the better fighter, successfully defending her WBC atomweight belt. As to Nagaowa, her future looks bleak as her fight record drops even more to 11 wins and 11 losses.

Before Nagaowa tasted defeat in the main card, another Cordilleran boxer, Alvin Tam got into the ring and got knocked out in the very first round by Yukihiro Nakamura, also from Japan. It's Tam's first fight outside of the Philippines and getting clocked the way he did is a menacingly bad sign.The kid obviously possesses a suspect chin. Nakamura is not much of a puncher. In fact, he lost his last three fights before he faced Tam. If Tam can't deal with a non-puncher like Nakamura let alone spend more than a round with him inside the ring, how do you think will he fare with real contenders?

For Tam, it's back to the drawing board. He needs to step up his game if he wants to bang it out with contenders in his division.
