Tomorrow fans at the Korakuen Hall will get the chance to see the promising Koki Inoue (1-0, 1) [井上 浩樹], the cousin of WBO Super Flyweight world champion Naoya Inoue and OPBF Super Flyweight champion Takuma Inoue.
The talented novice will in action against a Thai, who is expected to serve as fodder for the prospect, and sounded very confident of extending his perfect start to professional life.
Inoue had been training for this bout by spending time training along with his cousins, and their father Shingo Inoue, and appears to have been working hard on his core strength and physicality. Two aspects of his game that we expect to see tomorrow. If he does then we'd be very shocked to not see him blow away the Thai foe.
As for the Thai, who looked very old and weary, we've not been given his name, though we have been made aware that he made the weight for the bout, just like Inoue who looked ripped to pieces.
