Fuchigami is best known to many fans for his ill fated WBA Middleweight title fight with Gennady Golovkin, a bout that saw the Japanese fighter battered in just 3 rounds.
Although the loss to Golovkin is the lasting memory of Fuchigami he is actually an accomplished fighter having been a unified Japanese and OPBF Middleweight champion. Sadly however his career is on the rocks having lost 3 of his last 4 including the loss to Golovkin and subsequent defeats to Akio Shibata and Hikaru Nishida.
The Nishida loss, which came in March, was a huge hit for Fuchigami's career and although he's just 30 years old he will know he desperately needs a win on his return to the ring.
No opponent has yet been named for Fuchigami, but with his career literally on the line we imagine he will be fighting a very limited foe in the hope of rebuilding his confidence.
