Earlier this month saw the JBC announce the release of the 2014 Japanese "Boxing Record Book". The book, pictured opposite, features records of numerous fighters across the various level of boxing, from Japanese domestic fighters to OPBF ranked and even world champions.
The book is said to contain around 250 pages and will be available from the Japanese Amazon for around 2,700 Yen (about $26 or £16).
Whilst we'd certainly avoid it you don't speak, or rather read, Japanese it does seem like another fantastic bit of memorabilia for the avid collector and with an affordable price (barring insane import costs at customs) it may well be the sort of thing that could make your collection a little bit unique. And also, let be honest, it's got a pretty good looking cover with 13 men who held world titles last year.
At the moment the book isn't yet available though we imagine the release is imminent.
