When we think of the best fights from 2013 one fight really stands out to us and that's the WBC Super Featherweight title fight between Takashi Miura and Sergio Thompson which took place on August 17th. The bout, a mandatory defence for Miura, saw the Japanese fighting travelling to Mexico and putting it all on the line in a balls to the wall war with his Mexican counter part.
We expected this to be a thriller. Both guys like to throw bombs for fun, both guys like to neglect traditional defences methods with the logic that offence is the best defence, and both guys are tough, tough men. Thankfully it lived up to the expectation and didn't disappoint, in fact if anything it exceeded the insane expectation we had.
We won't ruin the action but we must beg you all to watch this thriller. If you watch this then feel the need for a bit more savage and violent action we'd then suggest watching the similarly violent bout between Koki Eto and Kompayak Porpramook which was almost as good as this insanely exciting contest.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
