This coming Sunday Japanese prospect Japanese prospect Hiroto Kyoguchi (7-0, 6) [京口 紘人] attempts to become the latest Japanese world champion as he takes on IBF Light Flyweight champion Jose Argumedo (20-3-1, 12), in a bout that looks truly mouth watering with the styles of two fighters almost certainly set to gel for a tremendous bout.
Today, ahead of that bout, Kyoguchi took part in a press conference and public work out as he looked confident, oozing belief ahead of the biggest bout of his career.
The challenger, wearing a Joichiro Tatsuyoshi wind breaker, stated that he was going to a champion like "Joe" and was sure of not only winning the title but stopping Argumedo. If he manages that he will set a Japanese speed record, winning a title in less time from debut than any other Japanese fighter in history.
As for the actual work out, that was pretty limited with Kyoguchi hitting the mitts and the heavy bag, and working up a sweat on the aero bike. Despite that it's clear he's in great shape, and is only a few pounds over the Minimumweight at the moment, with all indications being that he is in great condition and raring for fight time.
