After losing that fight Shiino was expected to bounce back and end 2014 on the verge of another OPBF title fight. In his way was the little known Hideo Sakamoto, a relative unknown on the Japanese domestic scene.
We won't ruin the result of this one but this is the type of match up that we again love about the Japanese scene where fighters are made to fight and win, lose or draw there are so few easy bouts out the domestic scene.
For those wanting a highlight moment we suggest you pay attention to 10:50.
