Tetsuma Hayashi (14-0-1, 4) Vs Takayashu Kobayashi (15-3-2, 2)
Boxing is typically at it's best when both fighters come to win with the knowledge that a win furthers their career and there is something to be fighting for. One such bout saw Takayashu Kobayashi, a former Japanese Flyweight title challenger, battle against the unbeaten Tetsuma Hayashi in the semi-final of the "Strongest Korakuen". For both men the bout was a key one and would move them to the "Strongest Korakuen Final" and subsequently a chance to fight for the Japanese national title whilst the loser would need to get back in line.
