The only Japanese show of the day is a less than great one.
In the main event former OPBF champion Hiroshige Osawa (27-3-4, 16) faces of against Shota Yamaguchi (13-2, 8). Osawa, who has been in and out of the world rankings in recent times, has gone 12-0-1 (9) the last 7 years though we're hoping that if he wins here he will move towards a much more meaningful than the ones he's been involved in recently, which have been very poor. On paper Yamaguchi is a step up from the opponents Osawa has been fighting recently but doesn't have a real win of note to make us think he could really push Osawa here.
In the chief support bout Kosuke Saka (10-3, 7) will be up against Kazuki Hashimoto (11-5, 7) in what actually could be a fun fight between two solid punchers. Of the two men it's Hashimoto who is the more well known, though he's actually known for a loss in Mexico to Jhonny Gonzalez. Despite being the more “known” man Hashimoto has suffered 5 stoppage losses and there's a good chance thus could be stoppage loss #6.
Prachuap Khiri Khan, Thailand
In Thailand the Kokiet Group will be putting a show with a pair of title fights, both of which will be televised by Channel 7.
One of those bouts will see the unbeaten Norasing Kokietgym (16-0-1, 12) take on Indonesia's Kichang Kim (6-2-1, 2) in what appears to be a genuinely horrific mismatch. The title on the line here is Norasing's WBC Asian Boxing Council Silver Super Flyweight title, which he will be defending for the first time, following his win over Juventus Baga back in April.
The other title bout sees former world title challenger Samartlek Kokietgym (22-5, 7) take part in a bout for the vacant WBC Asian Boxing Council Minimumweight title. This will be Samartlek's first title bout since he was stopped by Naoya Inoue in September 2014, in a bout for the WBC Light Flyweight title. Supposedly Samartlek's opponent will be Oscar Raknafa (12-11, 5).
