Over the past few days Japanese fight fans had the opportunity to see a number of the inter-scholastic tournaments, including the boxing which was streamed online. Among those in action was Keisuke Matsumoto [松本 圭佑], who lost a split decision in the final at Flyweight to Asian Youth Games gold medal winner Hayato Tsutsumi [堤駿斗].
Despite that competition finish just days ago Matsumoto has already returned to the Ohashi gym where he has started to work on the flaws that Tsutsumi exposed in his ability.
The popular teenager, who is hoping to compete at the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, seems to know the way to improve is to get back on the horse and has seemingly shown a determination to become better and to avenge in the future. Then against losing to Tsutsumi is nothing at all to be ashamed by and he too is expected to have a very bright future ahead of him.
