On Friday evening at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japanese boxer Naoko Fujioka (17-2, 7 KOs) outworked Costa Rica’s previously unbeaten Yokasta Valle (13-1, 6 KOs) to claim the vacant WBO Light Flyweight Championship.

Fujioka was vying to win a fifth title in a fifth different weight class while Valle was searching to obtain her second championship since winning the IBF Light Minimumweight title in December of 2016.

Valle held on and fought a great fight. despite receiving a cut to the left eye from a clash of heads in the second round.

The hometown champ’s faster and powerful hands captivated the judges for the Unanimous Decision result to claim the WBO strap and her place in history.

Official Scores: 99-91, 98-92, 96-94

Fujioka joins Amanda Serrano (34-1-1, 26 KOs and current WBO Super Bantamweight Champion) as the only female boxers to have won major world titles in five different weight divisions.
