Of the two men the more proven is Heno, a PBF champion at 108lbs with notable stoppage wins over Roque Lauro and Cris Ganoza, and he has gone 10-0-1 after 3 successive draws to begin his career.
Although relatively unknown outside of his homeland Heno has proven his ability at home and looks like a genuine prospect, with power, toughness and an ability to go 10 rounds, having gone 8 or more 5 times in 14 fights. He has fought as high as Super Flyweight and is certainly a strong and tough fighter, even if there is still a lot of questions for him to answer, with some expecting him to be able to answer those questions with ease. In fact some in the Philippines do see him as one of their hidden gems, as his 9th round KO of the previously unbeaten Cris Ganoza showed.
Aged 24 Ogido is a fighter looking to score a break out win and establish himself as one to watch. He lacks power, but is a gritty and determined fighter who has stepped up well following a loss in the 2014 Rookie of the Year final to Kenji Ono. He was last seen fighting to a fortunate draw against Jonathan Refugio, in a WBC Youth title fight and before that scored a very good win over Jeffrey Galero.
Sadly for Ogido he's in arguably the most stacked division in Japan. He's well behind the likes of Kosei Tanaka, Ryoichi Taguchi, Kosei Tanaka and Akira Yaegashi, and there are plenty of others who would be favoured to beat him as well, such as Ryo Miyazaki and Tetsuya Hisada. Sadly his lack of power will likely hold him back from ever reaching the pinnacle of the sport, but he has the potential to leave a real mark at Oriental scene, in the future.
Although Ogido is talented we're feeling that Heno will come out on top. He will out work and out muscle the Japanese fighter on route to a clear but competitive decision, which will perhaps be closer on the cards than the reality in the ring suggests.
