Hisashi Amagasa (28-4-2, 19) Vs Guillermo Rigondeaux (14-0, 9)
A few weeks ago we heard a rumour that Cubana sensation Guillermo Rigondeaux was heading to Japan to fight OPBF Featherweight champion Hisashi Amagasa. At first it was a rumour that saw us raise our eye brows, then it quickly grew and within 24 hours it was all but confirmed. Rigondeaux, one of the sports most highly regarded fighters and a double Olympic champion was indeed off to Japan to fight Amagasa in what would be 2014's final bout of the year. On paper it was a mismatch only made interesting by a huge size disparity in the ring however it was a compelling contest and one of the most exciting bouts of Rigondeaux's career. Enjoy what turned out to be a very surprisingly good contest.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
