The world ranked Hisada will be not only risking his Japanese title but also world rankings with all 4 world title bodies on his July return, but will feel confident of over-coming his challenger, 27 year old Koki Ono (12-4, 5) [小野晃輝].
Hisada, who has won his last 10 bouts including wins over Kenichi Horikawa and Atsushi Kakutani, will be feeling full of confidence here, but will know that he has everything to lose. That include a WBA #1 world ranking, along with 3 other top 10 positions and an almost assured world title fight. Given his urrent run of form a loss won't be on his mind, but suffering another injury, like he had against Itagaki, would likely push any potential world title fight back to 2019 at the earliest.
Ono on the other hand actually lost to Itagaki last time out, in a Japanese title challenger bout, with that loss ending a 5 fight winning run. Although a talented domestic level fighter we don't expect him to be too much of a challenge for someone of Hisada's ability.
Also in Japanese title news it's been confirmed that Japanese Flyweight champion Masayuki Kuroda (29-7-3, 16) [黒田 雅之] will be defending his title against Akinori Hoshino (13-7-2, 9) [星野晃規] on July 23rd in what will be Kuroda's third defense of the title and Hoshino's first title bout.
