This coming Monday fight fans in Tokyo will get the 4th Asign Bee show and it's littered with some really intriguing match ups, even if the card won't get much international interest.
The one fighter of international not on this card is former world title challenger Hisashi Amagasa (32-6-2, 20), who headlines the card against a low key Thai foe. Amagasa will be looking to record his third win since last years loss to Josh Warrington, and although looking like a fighter on the slide he should pick up a win here, and move on to bigger and better bouts in the near future.
In a potentially thrilling brawl we'll see recent Japanese Flyweight title challenger Yudai Arai (8-4-3,4) take on Yota Hori (12-5-2, 7). Both of these fighters are limited, and have lost 3 of their last 6, but have styles that should gel well for an exciting contest, and should see both men putting it on the line for a potential title fight later in the year. This really could be a bit of a hidden gem.
Another supporting bout here will see the really exciting Hiroaki Teshigawara (13-2-2, 7) take on the heavy handed Keita Kurihara (9-4, 8), in what should be a very fan friendly bout. Teshigawara is a fringe Japanese title level fighter, as he showed a couple of fights back against Ryo Akaho, and it's hard to see him losing here, however Kurihawa has won his last 6 with 5 stoppages, and is showing signs of being a genuine puncher at domestic level.
In a really nice looking bout on paper we'll see Takeshi Kaneko (5-0-1) risk his unbeaten record against the heavy handed Tatsuhiro Toguchi (6-2-1, 5). Although unbeaten Kaneko is feather fisted and at 29 it's unlikely he'll find his power any time soon. Toguchi on the other hand is a rare 20 year old puncher who began his career 1-2 before going 5-0-1 (4) and showing some potential, and something to be excited about. This will be skills against power, and should be a genuinely intriguing contest in the ring.
