Official signing ceremony for "Super Boxeo" see's Narvaez change glove colour and Inoue state he's made 115
Earlier today at the Hotel Grand Palace in Tokyo the press were given access to 8 of the fighters for Tuesday's upcoming "Super Boxeo" show in Tokyo's Metropolitan Gymnasium as the fighters took part in the final press conference and the signing ceremony.
The fighters who were at the press event included Ryota Murata (5-0, 4) and his opponent Jessie Nicklow (24-4-3, 8). Murata, dressed in a sharp black suit, seemed confident at the event and had spoken about his top quality sparring which consisted of fighters from around the world. Notably Murata was dressed in a manner that starkly contrasted the shaven headed Nicklow who looked to have been the most casually dressed of the fighters.
Another fighter at the event was Murata's Teiken stablemate Jorge Linares (37-3, 24) who will be fighting for the WBC Lightweight title against Javier Prieto (24-7-2, 18).Both of these men seemed confident with Linares saying he will do his best and thanking everyone for this opportunity. Prieto seemed to know that he wasn't going to be able to match the speed of Linares but had got himself a game plan to win.
