Over the past 24 hours we've been sent the image of the poster for the October 22nd card from Teiken promotions. The show, which is set to be featured on TOUCH! WOWOW features world champions Takashi Miura (27-2-2, 20) and Roman Gonzalez (40-0, 34) who will be defending their titles in interesting looking bouts.
For Miura, the WBC Super Featherweight champion, the challenge ahead of him is big punching Mexican Edgar Puerta (23-4-1, 19) who comes into this bout as the WBC mandatory challenger for the bout. Puerta will be the 4th successive Mexican foe for Miura who is gaining a reputation as a "Mexecutioner" following wins over Gamaliel Diaz, Sergio Thompson and Dante Jardon. If you've not yet seen those fights we suggest you watch them, especially the Thompson bout which was one of the front runners for the 2013 FOTY.
As for unbeaten Nicaraguan sensation Roman Gonzalez we'll see him defending his WBC Flyweight title, and unbeaten record, against rugged and exciting Filipino Rocky Fuentes (35-7-2, 20,) who will be fighting in his second successive world title bout following a loss in an IBF Flyweight title bout against Amnat Ruenroeng at the start of this year. Gonzalez will be defending the Flyweight title for the first time since winning it in Japan when he stopped Akira Yaegashi in one of the most anticipated "little men" fights of the year.
As well as the two world title bouts the show has also the show will also feature the world ranked Ryo Akaho (24-1-2, 16) who will be up against Mexico's Antonio Tostado Garcia (14-3, 6) which isn't featured on the poster.
