In Tokyo this coming Friday the Nitta Gym put on their next show, as they try to rebuild after a few difficult years. Unfortunately it really is a small card and all the bouts are 4 rounders.
There really isn't any bouts of note on this show, with only a small number of unbeaten fighters on the card. Among those unbeaten men is Ayumu Komoto (1-0, 1), who looks to secure his second win as he takes on the more experienced Takuya Kurata (1-4-1, 1) in a Super Flyweight bout. Kurata is almost 5 years removed from his win, which came against Yuta Ouchi in November 2014, but did earn a draw last time out against Shita Nisa.
Another unbeaten youngster on this card is Daiki Sakamoto (1-0-1, 1), who will be up against debuting 18 year old Kosuke Sato (0-0).
Given the lack of experience of the fighters on this card it's hard to really know what to expect here, but there may be some fun action, as there usually is in these style of Japanese novice cards
Baja California, Mexico
As well as the small show in Japan we also have interest in a card in Mexico, where US based Kazakh hopeful Sagadat Rakhmankul (5-1, 3) hunts his next win. The once beaten Rakhmankul will be taking on his most notable foe to date, as he takes on veteran Cosme Rivera (42-27-3, 29). For Rakhmankul this will be his third bout since a 2018 loss to Nicklaus Flaz and it's good to see him being active. At 43 years old Rivera is a long way removed from his 2005 fight against Zab Judah though he's still tough and has been staying busy and showing his toughness, with his last 3 bouts all going the distance.
