Whilst there are lots of world titles out there there are also a lot of over-looked fighters who have had limited opportunities at the top and are still unknown by many fans around the world. One such fighter is Japan's powerful Ryo Akaho who is one of the more over-looked contenders in Japanese boxing.
Akaho is a former OPBF Super Flyweight champion and former WBC Super Flyweight world title challenger. Although he came up short in his world title effort, losing to Yota Sato, he has since run off 4 straight stoppages including one over Filipino fighter Jecker Buhawe. The contest, at times, resembled two men swinging for the fences though was highly entertaining from the first bell to the eventual stoppage.
If you like your technically correct boxing we'd suggest you avoid this one as it's not for the purists but for the rest of you this one should be good fun as both men test the patience of the referee and both try to decapitate the other. Trust us this isn't pretty but it is rather fun.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
