N'Dam keeps title with split decision vs. Murata


TOKYO — WBA middleweight interim champion Hassan N’Dam survived a fourth-round knockdown on Saturday and went on to a split-decision win over Japan’s Ryota Murata.

The crowd at Ariake Coliseum jeered after the decision making N’Dam the regular WBA middleweight champ was announced. Two judges scored 116-111 and 115-112 for the French boxer, but one judge gave the fight to Murata at 117-110.
