    ““Naoko Fujioka”” (17-2, 7 KOs), 107.5, impressively acquired her fifth world belt when she showed a fine performance in winning the vacant WBO 108-pound belt by a unanimous decision (99-91, 98-92, 96-94) over previously unbeaten Yokasta Valle (13-0, 6 KOs), 106.25, over ten hard-fought rounds on Friday in Tokyo, Japan. Despite the unanimous tallies it was a very competitive fight, both showing everything they had. Fujioka tied the record of Puerto Rican ““Amanda Serrano”” with her fifth belt around the small waist.
