Raika Stops Walker in second round TKO...
May 23, 2004
 
  (MAY 23) Tonight in Tokyo, Japan, in an all-women’s boxing card, the mainliner ended in an easy win for Japan’s Emiko Raika, when she defended her WIBA World Featherweight title against United States Shelby Walker. The fight was stopped in the second round by TKO in a scheduled 10-round bout.

According to the WIBA (Ryan Wissow), originally, Walker was submitted in a “list” of potential fighters to the promoter in Japan, that would be for an eight-round non-title bout, and that Walker was picked from that list. Then the fight was moved to a non-mandatory (voluntary) world title defense for Raika, with some kind of understanding between the WIBA and the promoter that in Raika’s “Mandatory” defense of her world title that will take place in September, she (Raika) would need to fight against a “top contender.” WBAN’s interpretation: “tune-up” world title fight.  (WBAN calls them "TUNA" fights, because these kind of fights almost ALWAYS have a bad smell to them.)

Other results on this card included the following: Flyweight Sachiyo Shibata won a 10-round unanimous decision over Yumi Yashima, and Shibata is the new Japanese Women’s Flyweight champion; Featherweight Misa Morimoto stopped Maki Koyakashiro in the fifth round of a scheduled six-rounder; Strawweights Marika Watanabe won a four-rounder by a unanimous decision over Naoko Sakamoto; Strawweights Nanako Kikuchi won a four-round unanimous decision over Nao Ikeyama; Flyweight Rie Fujimoto won a four-round unanimous decision over Tomoko Koga; and lastly, Satako Kamimura won a four-round unanimous decision over Yuki Sakurada.
