Ryosuke Iwasa (岩佐 亮佑, Iwasa Ryōsuke, born December 26, 1989) is a Japanese professional boxer who held the IBF super bantamweight title from 2017 to 2018.

Career[edit]

Iwasa turned pro in 2008, after winning national titles as an amateur and accruing a 60-6 record. Iwasa was considered a highly touted prospect until he lost a bout for the Japanese bantamweight title against future world champion Shinsuke Yamanaka. Iwasa would eventually win that title, as well as the OPBF title.

Iwasa's first world title fight would come against Lee Haskins for the interim IBF bantamweight title on June 2015. Iwasa would be stopped in round 6 after being knocked down by a left hook from Haskins.[1] Following that loss, Iwasa moved to the super bantamweight division.[2]

In his fifth fight at that weight, Iwasa defeated Yukinori Oguni for the IBF super bantamweight title. Iwasa battered the defending champion, dropping him three times before the fight was stopped in round 6.[3]
