We had one such contest back in October 2012 when Satoshi Hosono, boasting 16 KO from 22 wins, took on Rikiya Fukuhara, a man with 19 stoppages from 26 wins and although the bout wasn't actually a Japanese title fight both men were, previously, domestic title holders. The fight didn't start like a petrol doused house with a lighter near by but it did see both men letting their hands go, especially in round 3 as we had thrilling back and forth action.
For what it's these two men were supposed to fight a rematch, for the Japanese Featherweight title earlier this year, before Fukuhara suffered an injury. We suspect that that rematch could take place in 2015 and if it does we'll be expecting fireworks. Interestingly both men are unbeaten since this bout.
A notable fact to just add here, before you watch the fight, was that this show also featured the professional debut of Japanese "Monster" Naoya Inoue who scored a 4th round victory over Filipino Crison Omayao to begin his insanely quick rise through the ranks.
