Ryo Miyazaki (11-0-3, 6) Vs Junichi Ebisuoka (21-12-3, 9)
After winning the OPBF Light Flyweight title in the summer of 2010 Ryo Miyazaki [宮崎亮] didn't take long before returning to the ring to defend the belt, against the experienced Junichi Ebisuoka [戎岡淳一].
When a fighter has 17 losses from 45 fights you don't tend to think he's very good, in the case of Junichi Ebisuoka however his record is criminally misleading and he had come close to winning a Japanese national title and has actually fought in a world title fight and OPBF title fight. He is the sort of guy who will give anyone below OPBF level a real nightmare and at Japanese domestic level he really can hold his own.
Earlier this year Ebisuoka proved he could hold his own as he fought to a draw with Tetsuya Hisada, a fringe contender on the Japanese domestic scene. The result may not have been a great one for either man but the fight certainly was a good one with both men trying to win and both giving their all in a very entertaining and well cought encounter.
(Note this is the second bout between the two men, the first took pace way back in 2008 with Hisada winning a very narrow split decision)
