Shimizu wins WBA 115lb belt
Slick-punching Japanese speedster Tomonobu Shimizu (19-3-1, 9 KOs), 115, captured the WBA super-flyweight belt as he utilized his faster footwork and longer reach to dominate early and late rounds, though losing middle rounds, to eke out a split but popular decision (115-113 twice and 114-116) over defending champ Hugo Cazares (35-7-2, 25 KOs), 115, a switch-hitting Mexican, over twelve hard-fought and gory sessions on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan.

Shimizu takes jr.bantamweight title from Cazares
Japan's Tomonobu Shimizu became the new WBA super flyweight champion Wednesday with a split decision over Hugo Cazares of Mexico.
Shimizu won on two cards by scores of 115-113, while one judge saw it 115-114 for Cazares.
It was the fifth title defense for Cazares, who won the belt in May 2010 against Nobuo Nashiro and was coming off a third-round knockout of Arturo Badillo on July 9. The Mexican fell to 35-7-2 with his first loss since falling to Ivan Calderon three years ago.
Shimizu won his fifth straight bout and improved to 19-3-1. His last loss came in his last title chance, suffering a 10th-round knockout by Daisuke Naito in July 2008.
