A recent post on the official blog of Hideyuki Ohashi, the Ohasi gym chairman, shows just how much belief he has in his teenage wonder kid Takuma Inoue (2-0).
The post in question is regarding the sparring that Takuma has recently been having. Under the guidance of his father and trainer Shingo Inoue, Takuma has been sharing the ring with two world class Filipino's in the form of Sonny Boy Jaro, a former WBC Flyweight champion, and Rocky Fuentes, a former IBF world title contender. From what we understand he more than held his own with Takuma actually spending 8 rounds with Jaro
Although Takuma has seen his brother, Naoya Inoue (6-0, 5), taking all the headlines recently it seems almost certain that Takuma himself will quickly rise to a world title in, perhaps even surpassing his brother's remarkable achievement of claiming a world belt in just his 6th professional bout.
