Sometimes with boxing strange things happen and one of the strangest things this year that no television channel offered live coverage of the OPBF Minimumweight title bout between defending champion Ryuji Hara, who was top 5 ranked by all 4 major bodies, and Kosei Tanaka, who himself was world ranked. Thankfully however fans of our great sport managed to do what the TV companies should have done and recorded it, shared it and let us all enjoy the fight which was one of the few fights we genuinely had been looking forward to since we first reported it as being a done deal.
Whilst we could break the fight down in to an RBR or some other break down we actually think that's really unfair, especially given how good the fight is, how highly skilled both men are, how technically brilliant the fight is and everything else that is on show. Instead we just suggest you treat yourself and watch this in full. You will not regret it.
Also please note that this footage has NOT been sped up. The fighters are as ridiculously quick as they look here. Amazing speed from both. Really, really amazing.
