Japan's Katsunari Takayama is one of our favourite fighters, we've never tried to hide that and we never will, we genuinely love "The Lightning Kid". In the build up to his fight with Francisco Rodriguez Jr we thought it fitting to include some of Takayama's many notable bouts, including this one with the then WBC Minimumweight champion Isaac Bustos.
This was Takayama's first world title fight and it was also Bustos's first title defence following his somewhat fortunate victory over Eagle Den Junlaphan. Takayama however appeared to be the man who looked like he was the more comfortable fighter in there looking busier and faster through out to take his first world title against his Mexican foe.
Sadly for Takayama his reign as WBC champion didn't last long with the Japanese youngster losing the belt in his first defence to former champion Junlaphan.
