Japanese Middleweight hopeful Ryota Murata (4-0, 4) may have only been in Japan for a few days following his training camp with Middleweight kingpin Gennady Golovkin (30-0, 27) though it seems that he's set to return to US for yet another camp.
This full camp will last around 4 weeks with the first 2 weeks being spent in Las Vegas and the final 2 weeks in Big bear.
We'd suspect the Las Vegas part of the camp will involve sparring with various Top Rank fighters under the guidance of Miguel Diaz, and the name of Mike Jones has been linked as a possible sparring partner.
In Big Bear Murata will be putting the final touches to his training and will be working on his cardio and weight ahead of returning home.
From what we understand Murata will be back in Japan late in August to finalise preparations for his bout against Mexican champion Adrian Luna Flores (17-2-1, 11) on September 9th. It's thought that if he wins he'll fight once more later in the year in what is possibly going to be his final bout in Japan.
