To show of the new facility today 3 of Watanabe's fighters all took part in a public training session. The 3 fighters were WBA Super Featherweight champion Takashi Uchiyama (21-0-1, 17), WBA Super Flyweight champion Kohei Kono (30-8, 13) and future world Light Flyweight title challenger Ryoichi Taguchi (20-2-1, 8), who will all be in action on December 31st.
Prior to the trio's title fights we are also very excited to see OPBF and Japanese Middleweight champion Akio Shibata (23-8-1, 9) defending his titles on December 6th. If all goes well for the Watanabe fighters they'll begin 2015 with a trio of world champions, a unified Japanese and OPBF champion, and several notable prospects, contenders and hopefuls. The gym really could be riding a real wave come January 1st 2015.
