This weekend fight fans in the UK will get the chance to to see Japan's gutsy Hisashi Amagasa (30-5-2, 20) [天笠 尚] take on the unbeaten Englishman Josh Warrington (22-0, 4) in what looks like potentially brilliant bout, with both men looking to prove a lot.
This morning saw Amagasa leave Japan for the UK, with his manager Keiichiro Kanehira posting an image of Amagasa at the airport, as he prepared to leave for the UK.
The "Slimming Assassin" will be in the second most notable bout of his career, and will be looking to secure a second world title bout, with a win over Warrington. Of course the bout pales in significance to Amagasa's 2014 contest with Guillermo Rigondeaux, however it does come at Amagasa's more natural Featherweight division.
At the airport Amagasa looked relaxed and it seems his team are very confident in their man, who has been priced as the notable under-dog.
