In just over a week's time Japanese fans will have the chance to see a special day of WOWOW with the channel showing their contest for free. As part of that day the channel will be doing an "Excite Fight" show, which will feature two world title fights.
On paper the more interesting of those two bouts is at Super Flyweight where the "Human Highlight Reel" Koki Eto (17-3-1, 13) takes on unbeaten WBC champion Carlos Cuadras (33-0-1, 26) in what is likely to be an all action bout.
Today, ahead of that bout, Eto took part in a public training session, a session that saw Eto bang away on the mitts with trainer Tomori Tadashi.
Whilst the session was supposed to be a chance to see Eto it was also a chance for his team to talk and it was his team who sounded upbeat though did seem to confess that Eto had some negative tendencies that needed to be sorted if he was to win against Cuadras. They were however positive in regards to his power and seem to feel that that will be his key to becoming the first Okinawa born champion since the early 1990's.
