Just as soon as Western boxing fans have began talking about Naoya Inoue a new Japanese wonder kid seems ready to break on to the professional scene.
The 18 year old Kosei Tanaka, a 4 time high school champion, is now set for his debut which has been finalised for November 10th at the International Conference Hall, Nagoya.
The talented and very highly regarded youngster will begin his professional career in a scheduled 6 round contest as he takes on Indonesian Oscar Raknafa, the WBO #6 ranked Minimumweight.
Although Raknafa (12-3, 5) has never fought outside of Indonesia he is expected to be a fantastic test for the debuting Tanaka, who some feel is a sure fire world champion.
