Japanese fighters have a reputation for being incredibly tough. We saw this stereotype last year in a 2013 FOTY contender between Nihito Arakawa and Omar Figueroa, we saw it again in 2014 when Hidenori Otake took the best shots of Britain's Scott Quigg, and came back for more. The bout wasn't the most competitive but Otake did show insane toughness, heart and energy in a brilliant losing effort.
For those wondering about history, this was the first time a Japanese fighter had traveled to Britain to challenge a world champion since Akio Kameda challenged Terry Marsh back in the 1980's. Sadly like Kameda we saw Otake fall short and we've still not seen a Japanese fighter win a world title in Europe.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
