Whilst researching a piece for another site I stumbled upon obscure Japanese Minimumweight Yamato Uchinono (2-2-5, 1). Whilst his record looked weird from the off with 5 draws from 9 bouts, I was more surprised when I actually went through his record in detail.

Uchinono debuted in May 2010 and stopped fellow debutant Daiki Kusuhara in 3 rounds. Over his following 6 fights however Uchinono scored 5 majority decisions, each of them over 4 rounds and covering a period of 2 years.

The only fight that broke would would have surely been the weirdest run of draws in boxing history was a 4th round TKO loss to Takayuki Teraji in July 2011, which it's self was followed by 4 of the 5 draws (inlcuding 2 against unbeaten fighters). This meant after 7 fights Uchinono's record read 1-1-5 (1) a remarkably strange record.

The 4-fight draw streak came to an end in October 2012 as Uchinono claimed a decision victory over Ryota Iwashita (who had coincidentally drawn with Yuma Mutsu, 2 weeks after Uchinono had scored the 2nd of his draws). Sadly Uchinono would suffer his second career loss last December as rising unbeaten prospect Hiroya Yamamoto stopped him in 4 rounds.

From the title of this post you may very well think it was how long I last in bed but thankfully you'd be wrong. Instead it's the total time of Clarence Joseph's (1-0-0-1, 1) boxing debut which took place in February 2011 when Joseph faced Joseph Benjamin (then 4-24-2-2,3).

The bout, which took place at the 200 Peachtree in Atlanta, Georgia may well be the shortest bout known to man. Oddly however neither man won as a clash of heads after just seconds (literally) spelled a very early end to the proceedings with the referee quickly waving the bout off.

Sadly the only footage of the fight that is available is slowed down and part of a conspiracy theory, though it's still worth watching (see below) and is thanks to MrSplitttpersonality.

Since this bout Joseph has fought once scoring a 55 second KO over Eduardo Anduro, whilst Benjamin has scored 7 losses and 3 wins. Coincidentally it was the second successive No Contest for Benjamin who had had a 2nd round No Contest (due to a head clash) with Allen Williams (who was, like Joseph, a debutant).
