Satoshi Hosono (13-0, 10) Vs Masaki Sawanaga (22-8-4, 8)
There are a lot of fighters out there who spend their career being regarded as a contender in their division with out ever becoming a world champion. There is a growing feeling that that might be the case for Satoshi Hosono. The Japanese puncher is a multi-time world title challenger and one of the heaviest handed fighters on the Oriental scene. One of his Oriental title bouts saw him face off against fellow Japanese fighter Masaki Sawanaga. This bout came just 3 months after Hosono had claimed the Oriental title with a decision win against Makyo Sugita.
