Earlier this week, former world champion, Yoko Gushiken made a major announcement as he said WBA Female Super Flyweight champ Naoko Yamaguchi (22-3-3, 18) will defend her title against unbeaten compatriot Naoko Fujioka (10-0, 6), the current WBC Minimumweight champion.
The bout, set for November 13th is expected to be a sure fire winner though it's fair to say that the Gushiken managed Yamaguchi will be a clear favourite being the naturally bigger fighter.
Aged 35 the hard hitting Super Flyweight champion will be seeking the 3rd defense of her title. She has proven to be one of the truly hard hitters in female boxing and has adapted well after first being a javelin thrower.
Unbeaten in 10 bouts Fujioka is actually 3 years older than the defending champion though has proven that age is just a number on several occasions, most notably her victory over the much younger Anabel Ortiz in 2011 and Victoria Argueta last year.
