Whilst we already knew that promising youngster Takuma Inoue, the younger brother of Naoya Inoue, would be making his debut on December 6th what we didn't know was who he was debuting against. That however changed today with the announcement that Inoue would be debuting against JBC #8 ranked Minimumweight Tatsuya Fukuhara.
Fukuhara, who boasts a record of 12-3-3 (3) is a very solid and credible opponent for Inoue. Although probably not quite as good as Naoya's debut opponent, Crison Omayao, this is still a clear statement by the teenager and the Ohashi camp who are likely viewing him as another star in the making.
