Earlier today we were informed that touted Japanese prospect Shuya Masaki (1-0, 1) would be returning to the ring on August 1st as part of the Teiken promoted card at the Korakuen Hall.
At the moment we've not received the full details of Masaki's bout, though it will be his Tokyo debut and some are hoping to see him show off the talent that has seen him become regarded as one of the "under-the-radar" hopefuls of Japanese boxing.
The 21 year old Teiken fighter debuted back in April, wiping out Phanthong Por Panya in 134 seconds. Those in the know have tipped him for serious success after a very impressive 54-8 amateur record. Whilst it's too early to tell we are hoping to see him matched hard at some point in 2016. We're expecting him to be involved in an easy bout in August but if he's as good as speculated the easy bouts won't last too much longer.
