Naoya Inoue and Ken Shiro saw the year off with a bang as they both scored dominating wins at Bunka Gym, Yokohama, Japan.

Naoya "Monster" Inoue, Japan's number one and pound for pound ranked fighter made his seventh defence of his WBO strap against France's Yoan Boyeaux. Boyeaux boxed well,  but it was obvious from the outset he had nothing in his arsenal to worry Inoue.

Inoue put Boyeaux over at the end of the first. Boyeaux fought back well in the second but Inoue continued to control the action.

The end came in the 3rd when Boyeaux was dropped 3 times with body shots and was unable to recover.

Inoue's record progresses to 15-0 (13)

Ken Shiro TKO'ed Gilberto Pedroza in 4 to retain his WBC belt. Pedroza started the fight well but as the Champion began to up his game and throw the more quality work, Pedroza backed off and became very defensive.

Shiro scored a good knockdown in the forth and continued to attack scoring a second knockdown before the fight was stopped. 
Shiro now stands at 12-0-0 (6).
