At the end of 2016 Japanese TV channel CBC live streamed a WBO Light Flyweight world title bout which saw Kosei Tanaka (8-0, 5) [田中恒成] become a two-weight world champion, as he stopped Moises Fuentes. A few weeks ago we e-mailed CBC to enquire whether they would be showing Tanaka's next bout as well, and today we were sent the following press release, which certainly has some good news about Tanaka's May 20th bout with Angel Acosta (16-0, 16).

This match is being given great attention for Kosei Tanaka who won 4 amateur titles, won WBO World Minimum Weight title at his 5th fight from his great debut in May 2015, and has achieved the champions for two classes of weight division by beating Moises Fuentes (Mexico) who’s already won the champions for two classes of weight division.
This is Kosei’s very first defense match by welcoming Angel Acosta from Puerto Rico, who has the perfect record with 16 matches 16 wins 16 KO. It will be a great survival match between champion Tanaka and Acosta known as a second coming of Wilfredo Gomez , which is said by WBO President Francisco Valcarsel.
CBC TELEVISION provides you a great experience people in the world enjoy the same content together through international webcast.
We have been broadcasting Kosei’s match since his debut on our regional free TV, and we had many offers for the footage for a long time. This movement became a trigger of free webcasting from Kosei’s last match with Fuentes. It is such a great opportunity for boxing fans all over the world to enjoy a great match for free.
Hatanaka Promotion Chair Man Kiyoshi Hatanaka comments;
Kosei talks his goal is to win FIVE classes of weight division in the future. As he beautifully completed his last match with Fuentes only by 5 round, boxing fans and related people’s mark to Kosei is rapidly growing. We cannot wait Kosei wins this great fighter Acosta who has been making a perfect record so far.
Kosei is still only 21 years old and highly talented, so that I believe his dream is not only a dream but he can achieve it. I expect him to cross over domestic level and to be a world boxing hero. I like you to enjoy his “chapter two” through this live-streaming opportunity.
