Azinga Fuzile’s world title challenge fizzled out in the face of Kenichi Ogawa’s right-handed assault in New York on Sunday morning (SA time) as he lost a unanimous decision after three visits to the canvas.

Ogawa improved to 26 wins, one loss and a draw while Fuzile, 25, dropped to 15-2.The Tokyo-based brawler landed a right in the fifth round that had Fuzile wobbling against the ropes. The Duncan Village, East London, boxer initially held onto a rope to keep himself upright, but as he saw Ogawa moving in he had the presence of mind to take a knee.

But apart from a well-timed counter left that buckled Ogawa’s knees late in the third round, the SA southpaw never looked like dropping his opponent.Fuzile was slick, possessed great reflexes and slipped a lot of punches with his shoulder roll, which obviously impressed the judges, but he suffered his age-old problem of not throwing enough punches. headtopics.com
