The Ohashi gym is riding a crest of a wave at the moment with a number of notable fighters, including a pair of world champions and numbers world ranked contenders. They will be hoping to keep the momentum going on March 28th when Ohashi put on their next show, a show that features a number of Ohashi gym fighters.
The main event of that card is the third meeting between Japanese Featherweight champion Satoshi Hosono (30-2-1, 20) [細野 悟] and Rikiya Fukuhara (31-8-1, 23) [福原 力也] however the card does feature some very notable fighters on the under-card.
One of those under-card bouts sees the promising Kenichi Miyazaki (10-1-1, 3) [宮崎 拳一] face off against former Japanese title challenger Hiroya Yamamoto (9-4, 3) [山本 浩也].
Miyazaki, a promising Ohashi youngster, has won his last 5 bouts since suffering a 2nd round KO loss more than 2 years ago. Although promising Miyazaki hasn't mixed at a particularly high level and this bout is a notable step up for the 23 year old. As for Yamamoto his last few bouts have seen him test himself at a very respectable level , unfortunately however that has seen him come up short against the likes of Go Odaira, Xiong Zhao Zhong and, most recently, Tatsuya Fukuhara.
Although fans outside of the Japanese boxing scene may not realise it, this is a genuinely good match up and promises to tell us a lot about both men and is a really promising looking contest at 105lbs, with the winner being in the mix for a Japanese title fight later in 2016.
