We can't hide the fact that we are incredibly excited about the action that is still to come this year, how can anyone deny being excited about the huge way we're going to end 2014? Despite that however we're also looking forward to 2015 and the first major show next year already has us excited about the sheer violence of it's main event and two chief support bouts.
The show in question is the 533th Dynamic Glove card, which is also a "Be Real" show.
The show recently had it's poster unveiled and that has just made us even more excited, genuinely whetting our appetite for a show that promises a lot,
The main event is an OPBF Super Featherweight title bout between unbeaten champion Jomthong Chuwatana (8-0, 4) of Thailand and former Japanese national champion Daiki Kaneko (21-3-3, 14). This is honestly as good as it gets folks. The bout has two heavy handed, highly skilled, aggressively minded, tough and young fighters each craving a chance to prove themselves against the elite. The winner is almost certainly going to be in the running for a world title bout by the end of the year and the loser is almost certain to come again. Fantastic bout and a credit to both for agreeing to it.
As well as the fantastic main event we also get two Middleweight bouts.
One of those will see the ranked Shoma Fukumoto (5-1, 5) testing his power against the usually durable Kazuyuki Fukuyama (9-5, 2). Fukuyama was last seen losing a very 1-sided decision to Les Sherrington in Austrakia this past June and we suspect that Fukumoto will be trying to stop Fukuyama. The other Middleweight bout will see former Japanese champion Tomohiro Ebisu (12-4, 12) fighting against Tatsuro Kawabata (6-5, 2) in a bout very unlikely to go the distance, in fact we doubt Ebisu will ever go the distance with his "stop or be stopped" attitude.
This show, which takes place on January 17th, is one we're looking forward to almost as much as the big shows in late December and proves that Asian boxing is already planning an exciting 2015.
