Although best known in the west for being stopped by Gennady Golovkin in a WBA Middleweight title fight Fuchigami had a pretty notable run of success in Asia with wins over Gaku Takahashi, Tetsuya Suzuki, Takayuki Hosokawa and Koji Sato, with the win against Sato being a genuinely amazing fight.
In more recent years Fuchigami has looked like a bit of a spent fighter, losing 5 of 9 bouts after the Golovkin contest, and suffering stoppages in 3 of those defeats.
His final bout saw him take on Tomohiro Ebisu [胡 朋宏] in a contest for the Japanese interim Middleweight title. It was a typical war from both men and a late contender for the 2016 Japanese fighter of the year, taking place on Christmas eve. Since that bout both men have retired, with Ebisu retiring following a loss to Hikaru Nishida [西田 光] last year.
