This past weekend Kaneko fought his second bout since his loss to Takashi Uchiyama, last New Years Eve, and he impressed once again as he stopped Cirilo Espino and showed off why we rate him so highly.
Built like a monster at 130lbs Kaneko combines solid fundamentals, surprising hand speed, good movement, serious strength, spiteful power and a real toughness. All which allowed him to see off his Filipino opponent with out too many issues and becoming just the second man in history to stop Espino.
(We would like to apologise for some of the camera work here and the editing, sadly it wasn't done by ourselves but with video of these fights being hard to find we felt it better to include the fight "as is" than not feature it at all. So if there are continuity issues we are very sorry but for now they are out of our hands. With that said we would like to thank Y TAKA for the video)
