Tanaka downed the Puerto Rican southpaw with punishing body blows in the third and fourth rounds at Takeda Teva Ocean Arena before the referee stopped the match shortly before the bell in the seventh, Kyodo News reports.

The 24-year-old undefeated Japanese boxer improved to 14 wins with eight by knockout, while Gonzalez fell to 22-3 with 13 KOs.

Tanaka, a three-division champion with previous world titles at minimumweight and light flyweight, won the WBO flyweight belt off fellow Japanese Sho Kimura last year and beat compatriot Ryoichi Taguchi in his first defense in March.
