Earlier this month we were in touch with Morioka Boxing Gym in regards to their highly touted prospect Hinata Maruta (0-0). Like everyone who has followed the Japanese boxing scene we were wondering when Mr Maruta would be making his debut.
Surprisingly we got a response this morning from the folks at the gym who were kind enough to send the tweet with the little details that they have scheduled.
For those who can't read the Japanese in the tweet the gym essentially said that that Maruta's debut would be in late November and is scheduled to take place in Osaka. The full details, regarding a venue and opponent haven't been decided as of yet.
We would like to send a huge thank you to Morioka for the response and admit that we really can't wait to see if Maruta is as good as touted. If he is then Japanese boxing has another star in the making.
