In a battle between fellow countrymen, the champion made a measured start before stepping it up from the second session through to the fifth as he stood toe-to-toe with Sakamoto (135), being specially effective with overarm rights. Coming back strongly in the sixth, Sakamoto began to force Hatakeyama (135) back with surging attacks before the latter used his countering skills to pick up points from the outside for the next three rounds. It had been a thrilling affair and Hatakeyama sealed a well-deserved victory after 18 seconds of the tenth when Sakamoto, who had been dropped by a great right to the jaw, was counted out.
