"The four-round professional boxing game for girls" was held at Kourakuen Hall in Tokyo on July 27.

Keiko Ogasawara (30), a born-Deaf woman, defeated Ikue Murase with one knockout for only 54 seconds, making her debut as professional boxer.

She has started playing boxing for the purpose of a diet since ten years ago, and passed the protest in April this year.

Keiko said with a smile, "I am most happy to win the round today. Goal? Of course I want to become a champion".
