It feels that the last few months have been hell for fans of sport, thankfully for us however things are beginning to, slowly, return to normal. With that in mind we're glad to report that the next issue of Japanese boxing magazine Boxing Beat will be released tomorrow, both digitally and in paper.
The magazine includes a special feature regarding the "Champion's sense of distance", and interviews from the likes of Kosei Tanaka, Ryo Sagawa and Takeshi Inoue.
There is also a really interesting look at the 1980's Moscow Olympics and the Japanese fighters who qualified for the games, but weren't allowed to attend due to Japan's boycott.
With bouts resuming in the US, Mexico, South Korea, Germany and Poland recently the sport of boxing is slowly coming back and fingers crossed the next Boxing Beat will begin to talk about up coming bouts and results.
The latest issue of Japanese boxing magazine "Boxing Beat" was released today with the cover featuring the unbeaten Naoya Inoue (18-0, 16) [井上 尚弥].
The magazine, one of two major monthly boxing publications released in Japan, features not on articles about Inoue's recent win over Emmanuel Rodriguez butt also includes an article on Andy Ruiz's recent win over Anthony Joshua, in their big Heavyweight title fight, as well as previews for a host of upcoming world title fights featuring Japanese fighters.
The magazine is currently available on Amazon for ¥960 yen and can be bout in both a physical version or a digital version. Unfortunately however the magazine isn't available in English text, meaning this is really something just for those with Japanese language skills, or the patience of a saint.
Yesterday in Japan saw the latest release of Boxing Beat, one of the two major boxing magazines in the country.
The magazine's cover is an image of Ryota Murata (14-2, 11) [村田 諒太], with the word "payback" referring to his recently announced rematch with WBA "regular" Middleweight champion Rob Brant (25-1, 17).
As well as the Murata Vs Brant feature the Magazine also has a feature looking at a number of Japanese fighters who have recently fought in the US.
Other regular features including reviews of recent bouts, both international and domestically, with the main interview for the issue being with multi-time world title challenger Hiroyuki Sakamoto.
The physical magazine is available from stores in Japan and is also available digitally here.
Japanese boxing magazine "Boxing Beat" will be released, as readers are reading this, with a release date of March 15th, local time.
The magazine, which is the April version, will be available across and online and is certainly an interesting edition.
The key features including an in depth story in regards to Naoya Inoue (17-0, 15) [井上 尚弥] and the way he spars, as well as features on reports on international bouts featuring Japanese fighters, a look at the Misako Gym, and an interview with a current OPBF champion.
Whilst we know this is a niche magazine, given most of our readers aren't Japanese, this is still a major boxing publication and one of the best magazines focusing on the sport. A worthy read for those who can read Japanese.
