December 31st 2012- Ota-City General Gymnasium, Tokyo, Japan
Tepparith Kokietgym (21-2, 13) Vs Kohei Kono (27-7, 10)
Japan's New Year Eve shows have become a staple of the boxing calendar in recent years and typically we see two competing shows. One of those has been an Ioka show featuring Kazuto Ioka and Ryo Miyazaki whilst the other has been a Watanabe show featuring Takashi Uchiyama and Kohei Kono. To 2012 Kono got his shot at the then WBA Super Flyweight champion Tepparith Kokietgym in what was a make or break fight for Kono against a man who was in sensational form and was 3-0 (1) in world title fights in Japan with notable wins over Daiki Kameda, Tomonobu Shimizu and Nabuo Nashiro.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
