November 20th 2016-Japan
Tomoya Tsuboi Vs Tosho Kashiwazaki
This past weekend fight fans in Japan had the chance to see the 2016 All Japan Amateur finals. At Light Flyweight that saw Tomoya Tsuboi [坪井智也] battle against Tosho Kashiwazaki [－柏崎刀翔].
November 2011- Gifu, Japan (We think)
Naoya Inoue (N/A) Vs Tosho Kashiwazaki (N/A)
It's fair to say that right now, Naoya Inoue is the hottest thing in Japanese boxing and is one super flyweight that everyone seems to be excited about. For some fans however he seemed to come out of nowhere to suddenly become a star. Those in Japan however knew he was something special from his days as an amateur an in 2011 he won the Japanese national title. On route to that title he over-came Tosho Kashiwazaki, in what we believe was the third meeting between two men. At the time this was a good win however it's become even better as Kashiwazaki himself has become a real force in the amateur ranks and competed at the 2013 World Amateur Championships whilst winning various other titles.
[Note-If someone can correct us regarding which meeting this was we will be very thankful]
