Japanese Flyweight champion Suguru Muranaka is currently a world ranked fighter with his eye on winning a world title somewhere down the line. Although not the biggest puncher is a real battler and one of the most over-looked Flyweights in the sport today and in fact his title winning slugfest with Takuya Kogawa is one of the most fun to watch domestic title bouts in years.
Just a few weeks ago Muranaka secured his second defense of his title as he over-came the determined Yusuke Sakashita.
On paper the bout was a total mismatch but in reality it was a hard, hard fight for Muranaka against a man who came to the ring in search of an upset and gave a great account of himself...that was until Muranaka's pressure and work rate took over to grind down the game challenger who was eventually taken out by one of the best shots the champion will have ever landed.
If you've not seen Muranaka before we suggest watching not only this bout but also the Kogawa fight and his first defense against Masayuki Kuroda from earlier this year.
