Shinsuke Yamanaka, a former professional boxer, left his mark in the sport with his notable victories and world title wins. Throughout his career, Yamanaka had a total of 31 fights, winning 27 of them, with 19 of those being knockout wins. He had two losses, both of which were via stoppage, and two draws with no no-contests.
Yamanaka started his boxing career in 2006 at the age of 23, defeating Hitoshi Takahashi via unanimous decision. He had his first world title fight at the age of 29 on November 6, 2011, after 16 professional fights when he defeated Christian Esquivel via 11th round TKO, becoming the bantamweight champion of the world. Yamanaka won a total of two world titles at bantamweight, and successfully defended his WBC title 12 times with a total of 9 wins being via knockout.
Throughout Yamanaka's professional career, some of his most notable victories include wins over Carlos Carlson, Jose Nieves, Anselmo Moreno, Vic Darchinyan, Tomás Rojas, Diego Santillan, and Stephane Jamoye. These victories are just a few of the highlights of his career.
However, Yamanaka also had two losses in his professional career, both of which were in title bouts. His first loss was against Luis Nery via 4th round TKO, ending his 27-fight win streak. Yamanaka lost his second and final fight against Mexican boxer Luis Nery on March 1, 2018, via 2nd round TKO, losing the fight for the vacant bantamweight WBC title, and ending his career with a record of 27-2-2.
November 6, 2011, was a significant milestone for Yamanaka as he won his first world title against Christian Esquivel via 11th round TKO. This gave him a chance to defend his WBC bantamweight title, and Yamanaka did just that against Vic Darchinyan, winning the fight via 12 round unanimous decision. He followed that up with successful defenses of his WBC title against Tomás Rojas, winning the fight via 7th round KO, and against Malcolm Tuñacao, winning the fight via 12th round TKO. On August 12, 2013, Yamanaka had an impressive 1st round KO win over Jose Nieves, successfully defending his WBC title for the fourth time.
After those wins, Yamanaka continued to have successful title defenses, including a win against Carlos Carlson on March 2, 2017. Yamanaka successfully defended his WBC and The Ring bantamweight titles, winning the fight via 7th round TKO.
Yamanaka's career is a testament to his skill and determination as a boxer. His record speaks for itself, and his successful title defenses prove that he was a force to be reckoned with in the ring. Though his career is now over, he will always be remembered as one of the top bantamweight boxers of his time.
