World Of Sport boxing gym may not be a big name gym thought they do have a number of stand out fighters and prospects who are making their mark on the sport. Arguably the most notable of those names is female fighter Naoko Shibata (14-3, 4), who is the current IBF female Light Flyweight champion.
Over the past week or so World of Sport heave released details relating to their next show. The details are relatively scarce though they included some details of Shibata's next world title defense.
We now know that Shibata will defend her title on November 13th at the Korakuen Hall in what will be her 4th defense of the belt that she won back on November 14th 2013. What we don't know however is who Shibata will be facing with that announcement expected to come relatively soon.
As well as Shibata's bout the card will also feature the very promising the unbeaten Takeshi Inoue (4-0-1, 2), who will fight in an 8 rounder against Hideo Mikan (7-9-1, 2), in what looks likely to be the co-feature of the show.
Hopefully Shibata's opponent for her next bout will be announced shortly though with several weeks to the fight we'd not be shocked at needing to wait until early October for the promoter to officially announce all the details.
