Earlier today Kadoebi announced the professional debut of Yudai Murakami [村上 雄大].
The 20 year old Murakami will be facing off in a 6 rounder at Lightweight against Thai visitor Sirisak Pimpasitta (3-5, 1) on the Dynamic Young Fight card, set to take place on April 7th at Korakuen Hall.
Whilst not a huge name from the amateurs Murakami is well regarded following a 29-6 (5) and the plan seems to be for Kadoebi to move him quickly through the year, wanting him to progress into 8 round bouts and a potential Japanese youth title fight.
Stood at around 5'11" Murakami is a skilled, clean punching rangy southpaw, who is looking to make his name as a Lightweight and has a lot of promise.
As for the Thai he has won his last 3, but is 0-2 in Japan, albeit with bouts against Kazuto Takesako and Daisuke Sakamoto, and is 0-4 against Japanese opponents.
