Today, ahead of her bout, Takenaka took part in a public work out which featured some sparring and 5 rounds of pad work with her looking sharp and energetic.
Interestingly Takenaka has stated that she has wanted to retire from boxing at the age of 31, something she stated when she first started, and knows that this bout could potentially be her sole world title bout with her 6 birthday coming next June. It's clear that she has been training for this bout as if it will be her last one and looked incredibly determined.
Kei Takenaka to face Louisa Hawton for WBO crown!
