On August 21st we'll see former world title challenger Daiki Kaneko (23-5-3, 15) [金子 大樹] return to the ring to take on Japanese ranked fighter Yusuke Nakagawa (10-4-1, 6) [中川 祐輔] in a really good match up, and the headline bout a show set to be shown over a-sign.
Ahead of his bout Kaneko has been sparring with a number of fighters, and today revealed that he was preparing along side Shuhei Tsuchiya (20-4, 17) [土屋 修平] with a spar against Tsuchiya occurring yesterday.
Whilst little details of the spar have been made public it does seem clear that this was an exciting spar to watch given the styles of the two men, and know that they have sparred has sort of made us hope that, one day, they face off for real.
Again details were sparce but Kaneko stated that his weight loss was going well and and that the spar has boosted his confidence ahead of his upcoming bout.
