One of those fighters is the debuting Kohei Kashino (0-0) who has gotten a lot of attention for having turned to boxing whilst being a certified public accountant from the University of Tokyo. Whilst being an educated boxer isn't unheard of it has managed to get him a lot of domestic attention.
For those interested Kashino's bout he will be fighting a Thai opponent in a 4 round Light Flyweight contest. We're unsure who the Thai is though we have been informed that his bout is likely to be streamed on a special ustream channel at 10:30am Tokyo time. For those wanting to watch the bout the channel can be found here.
The other fighter getting a lot of attention is female fighter Riyako Goshi (1-2) who has managed to get attention due in part to her looks and also her gravure photo shoots. Although not a great boxer she is managing to raise the attention of the sport and a interest the media enough into giving the show some attention.
Goshi will will also be fighting a Thai in her upcoming 4 rounder though her bout has been made at Flyweight. Surprisingly she was just 109.25lbs, a full 2lbs lighter than her opponent.
We hope to bring you the full weights from this show later today.
