Despite the loss, Joichiro was still viewed by the Japanese media as a prospect with real potential. Turning pro the following year with a 2 round stoppage of Sang Myon Chol of Korea, Joichiro claimed the national Japanese Bantamweight title from Shigeru Okabe in just his fourth professional fight. He would never defend that title as he vacated it to focus on the world title. One draw against Abraham Torres of Venezuela and a 10 round decision over Filipino fighter Rey Paciones later, he would earn his chance to win the title against then [[WBC]] bantamweight champion, [[Greg Richardson]]. *Work in Progress*
