We won't ruin much of the bout though will point out a few things. For Kuroda this bout followed back-to-back split decision draws in Japanese title defenses and saw him moving up a weight, he had fought at Flyweight previously but had never really looked comfortable. For Reveco, a former WBA Light Flyweight world champion, this was his first defense after being upgraded from "interim" champion status. As the interim champion Reveco had defended his title twice in 20 months.
Following this bout Kuroda would attempt to claim the Japanese Flyweight title though unfortunately for him he would suffer a stoppage loss to the very talented Suguru Muranaka, the first stoppage of Kuroda's career.
