In April 2013 Western boxing fans got their first real introduction to Japanese Super Bantamweight hopeful Yasutaka Ishimoto. Just 2 months prior to that bout Japanese fans saw Ishimoto in domestic action as he took on Yoshinori Uchida at the Korakuen Hall.
This bout came 12 months after Ishimoto had failed in a national title fight against Masaaki Serie and it seemed to show that he was improving as a fighter with more belief in his power.
We won't ruin the result here but it was an impressive performance from Ishimoto against a tough but limited domestic fighter.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
