Tomorrow Japanese fight fans could potentially see history being made as one prospect continues his incredible assent to stardom.
That prospect is the talented and young Ken Shiro (7-0, 4) [拳 四朗] who looks to defend his Japanese Light Flyweight title as he takes on the experienced Toshimasa Ouchi (20-8-3, 6) [大内 淳雅], and also attempts to claim the OPBF title, making him and his father, former OPBF Light Heavyweight champion Hisashi Teraji, the only father-son OPBF champions in history.
Today Ken Shiro and Ouchi weighed in for the JBC/OPBF Light Flyweight bout and both came in pretty much on the limit for the bout with both looking in incredible condition for the contest. Both were ripped, both looked confident and both know what is on the line with the two titles. Ken Shiro will also know that a win would help him earn a world title fighter later in the year.
For fight fans interested in watching this card it will be streamed live over www.boxingraise.com and feature commentary from Nobuhiro Ishida!
