Nasukawa Belted Again

Japanese kickboxing superstar Tenshin Nasukawa added another championship belt to his title collection Sunday.

The 20-year-old phenom won an ISKA Featherweight Title with a second round demolition of Argentina’s Martin Blanco at the Rizin 16 event held in Kobe, Japan.

Nasukawa ended the fight with a knee to the body, and remains unbeaten in over 30 kickboxing bouts.

Tenshin is already an ISKA champion under Oriental Rules (limited clinching, no elbows) in the 55 kg (bantamweight) category, and he’s now also the federation’s featherweight (57 kg) champion under low kick rules.

Nasukawa also holds titles in the RISE organization.

The young fighter is back in action soon. Nasukawa takes on Serkim PK Saenchai of Thailand in a 58 kg semifinal bout at the RISE World Series event taking place on 20 July in Osaka, Japan.
