Now both men are preparing to kick off their 2018's, with Omori returning to the ring on March 27th to face off with Coach Hiroto (13-2-2, 4) [小内義人] and Murata back in action on April 22nd, against ayet to be named opponent.
Ahead of their bouts the two men recent shared a sparring session, with Murata travelling to the WOZ boxing gym to share the ring with Omori, and learn from the talented southpaw hopeful. Whilst Murata would have been getting good quality ring time with a southpaw Omori would have been getting ring time with a good, fast and skilled Super Bantamweight, ahead of his bout which will take place at 122lbs.
Both men are young and very talented and despite their recent losses neither should be written off going forward, with both men looking to bounce back to title before the end of 2018.
