At the moment Rikki Naito is the unbeaten Japanese Super Featherweight champion and a man tipped by many as a future world champion. Just over a year ago however he was a Japanese youngster still trying to find his way in the sport and prove that he was more than just Cassius Naito's son.
One of the early performances that showcased "Rikki's" ability was his win over the far more experienced, though relatively limited, Tomohisa Tagawa.
Tagawa was, on paper, a good opponent for the then 6-0 Naito though the bout did prove to be rather 1-sided with Naito having too much speed and skill for his foe. In the eyes of many this was the fight that showed that Naito had the ability to become a national champion, something he managed to do less than a year later.
