Biography

Debut

Ioka turned professional in 2009. On April 12, 2009, he fought against Thongthailek Sor Tanapinyo, and won his debut via a third round technical knockout. After this victory, he won six straight victories.

Winning national and international title

On October 10, 2010, Ioka captured the Japanese light flyweight title.

Winning the world title

Ioka won the WBC strawweight title from Thai Oleydong Sithsamerchai via a fifth round technical knockout in the latter's seventh title defence in Kobe at the World Memorial Hall on February 11, 2011.

On June 20, 2012, in a match that marked the first time two Japanese fighters had met to unify world titles, Ioka defeated the WBA champion Akira Yaegashi via a unanimous decision at the Bodymaker Colosseum.[1][2][3] When asked whether the result would have been different unless he got swollen eyes, Yaegashi said "We should not think about it. There is no if's in boxing".[4] The day after the fight, Ioka decided to move up a weight division.[5][6]

On December 31,2012 Ioka beat undefeated José Alfredo Rodríguez for the vacant WBA light-flyweight title at the Bodymaker Colosseum. Ioka became a two-division World champion with the win.[7]

On February 28, 2014 Ioka would vacate the title to move up to the Flyweight division in order to aim towards becoming a three division World champion.[8]
