Earlier today it was reported by a number of sources that Japanese Super Bantamweight Hidenori Otake would be challenging WBO world champion Scott Quigg. Our Japanese expect has expressed doubt about the bout but he has also managed to hunt down some footage of Otake for those who wants to see him in action.
This bout, from July 2011, was Otake's last stoppage victory and saw him defeating the limited, light hitting and very stoppable Yuji Maruyama.
Going into this bout Maruyama was 11-10-1 (1) having been stopped 4 times in his 22 bout career whilst Otake was 15-1-3 (8) and regarded as a rising contender on the domestic scene courtesy of his great engine, exciting style and the run he was on, which included 5 stoppages in his previous 6 bouts.
Whilst this fight is more than 3 years old it is worth noting that Otake won the Japanese title just 2 fights later before making 4 defenses of the belt, so in some respect it is a relatively recent contest.
