On Wednesday boxing fans in Japan and in Thailand get the chance to tune in to a really interesting fight card featuring a pair of notable world title bouts. Both the bouts will feature Japanese champions defending their belts against Thai challengers in what promises to be a genuinely memorable night of fights.
The fights in question will see WBA Super Featherweight "super" champion Takashi Uchiyama (22-0-1, 18) defending his title against unbeaten challenger Jomthong Chuwatana (9-0, 4), in what is set to be Uchiyama's 10th world title defense, and Uchiyama's stablemate Ryoichi Taguchi (21-2-1, 8) defending his WBA Light Flyweight title against veteran Kwanthai Sithmorseng (49-3-1, 26)
Ahead of those bouts Japanese have run a small preview video showing off footage of both the champions and the challengers. For fans who have perhaps not got around to seeing much of the 4 fighters in action this is a great little video allowing fans to see the fighters and what they are about, and it shows a combination of interview footage, live fight footage, training footage and even a little look at the men outside of the ring.
