To begin the weekend it appears that Asian boxing fans have a solid card in Japan to look out for.
At the Bodymaker Colosseum in Osaka the Harada Gym presents "Fighting Beat Boxing" a show that appears to have 7 bouts listed.
The most notable bout on the show sees Ryo Nakajima (18-5, 10), Japan's #5 ranked Lightweight, taking on the hard hitting Kota Tokunaga (9-2, 7). Tokunaga is very much a finish or be finished type of guy with both of his losses coming via opening round KO and we'd not be too shocked if Nakajima manages to stop him early here.
Arguably a more interesting contest sees the unbeaten Shohei Omori (8-0, 4) facing Kiron Omura (11-2, 9). Going in to this bout Omori is putting his #12 Japanese Ranking at Bantamweight on the line against a dangerous but unranked opponent. This could well be the show stealer.
The final of the bouts currently listed on boxrec sees the experienced Yuki Takemoto (12-18-2, 6) matched up with Ryota Kihara (6-5-4, 5). This looks to be the weakest bout on the card in all honesty though it should still be entertaining with Kihara's power.
Not listed on boxrec are 4 other bouts including a "West Rookie of the Year" Featherweight contest between Shingo Kawamura (3-1, 1) and 18 year old Kyohei Tonomoto (1-0, 1).
The other 3 contests are all novice bouts as Takahiko Nakajima (1-3-1) is in action against, who believe is Takashi Okada (6-1-1, 1) who is best known for defeating McWilliams Arroyo. (Note-we may be wrong about it being Okada in action here); deubtant Yuki Takahashi (0-0) faces a fellow debutant who believe is Kitajima Sho (0-0) and Shota Fujii (1-8) will be battling Nakayama Takeshi (1-4-2, 1).
