For the 2nd successive day this week Japan hosts some notable bouts, this time at the Korakuen Hall courtesy of Ohashi Promotions.
The main event sees WBA female Atomweight champion Ayaka Miyao (14-5-1, 1) attempt to defend her belt for the second time. Miyao will be facing former rival Mari Ando (10-4, 5). This rematch between the two women sees Miyao facing the fighter she took the title from back in September 2012.
As well as the very exciting female world title bout we appeard to have an excellent undercard.
The most notable bout from the undercard sees young puncher Ryo Matsumoto (7-0, 7) taking a step up as he goes up against Takuya Miyamori (14-5-1, 2). Although Miyamori has been beaten several times he is durable and has only been stopped once, in his debut back in 2004 by the hard hitting Takeshi Hagiwara.
The experienced Toru Suzuki (23-3, 7) looks to rebuild his career after 2 losses in his last 3 fights. Suzuki will be facing Daisuke Furuhashi (13-5, 4) who has only won 3 of his last 7 bouts.
Hard hitting Lightweight Junpei Hara (11-5-2, 7) will be hoping to get his career back on the right tracks after going 2-3-1 in his last 6. Hara will be fighting the 22 year old Filipino "Bad Boy" Desson Cag-ong (13-8, 7) who is 0-2 in Japan (having been stopped by Takashi Miura in his most notable bout to date). This could be a pretty competitive match up in all honesty.
Also on the card is an 8 round female bout between recent world title challengers Yuko Kuroki (9-3, 5) and Saemi Hanagata (7-4-1, 3). Hanagata comes in to the bout winless in 3 bouts though they included a draw with Masae Akitaya and a loss to Momo Kosecki whilst Kuroki comes in following a lob sided decision loss to Etsuko Tada. This could well be the show stealer and act as a bit of a title eliminator.
