Kazuto Ioka (16-1, 10) Vs Juan Carlos Reveco (35-1, 19)
For some boxing is all about the money. We have fighters trying to make as much of it as they can and we have fans talking about fighters making large swathes of it. For others however the sport is about legacy, how a fighter will be remembered, their achievements and their willingness to prove themselves against top level fighters. It's needless to say that for Kazuto Ioka legacy comes first. Back in 2011 he set the Japanese speed record for fewest to become a world champion and just 3 fights later he unified titles. Today he had his second shot to become the quickest man to become a 3-weight world champion, and in turn become just the second Japanese fighter to achieve the feat. In his way was Argentinian warrior Juan Carlos Reveco. With legacy on the line these two really put on a show together in what was a thoroughly brilliant bout from start to end.
