Ken Shiro of Japan displayed tremendous boxing prowess to stop Milan Melindo in the seventh round and cop the World Boxing Confederation (WBC) light flyweight crown late Sunday in Yokohama, Japan. Melindo, the hard-fighting Filipino who is looking to regain the title, did not kiss the canvass, but the fight was stopped at the 2:47 mark due to a bloody cut over his left eye. Shiro, 26, was ahead, 59-55, on the scorecards of the three judges when referee Laurence Cole of the United States stopped the match upon the recommendation of the ring physician. Cole assessed that the Filipino was no longer punching and was just merely defending in the final 20 seconds of the seventh round.
