April 6th 2012- Tokyo International Forum, Tokyo, Japan
Takahiro Ao (22-2-1, 10) Vs Terdsak Kokietgym (46-3-1, 31)
When we talk about some of the greatest rivalries in boxing it's fair to say the Japan Vs Thailand rivalry is one of the biggest in Asia, it's also one of the best and one of the most exciting with a really rich history. One of the more recent "top match ups" between highly capable fighters from both countries came in 2012 when Takahiro Ao, then then WBC Super Featherweight champion, took on Thai veteran Terdsak Kokietgym. This wasn't the greatest fight in history but it was a high skilled and technical battle between two world class fighters and is well worth a watch.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
