Japanese hopeful Ryo Matsumoto (14-0, 12) was last seen in the ring last week, when he destroyed Thailand's Thanuthong Chor Kangwal in less than 2 rounds. Despite the recent activity he is already back in the gym as he continues his pursuit for a world title fight later in the year.
Currently the OPBF Super Flyweight champion we already know that Matsumoto has the intention of dropping his belt and moving onwards and upwards with a move up in class and weight division.
It's clear that his frame can support a lot more weight than the 115lbs that he won his OPBF belt at though doesn't yet seem clear whether his future lies at 118lbs or 122lbs, either of which would suit him better than remaining at Super Flyweight.
The gym work, from what we understand, was relatively light though the future match ups for the youngster are expected to be tough in what, many suspect, will be a break out year for one of the most over-looked prospects at the Ohashi gym.
