Tomorrow fights fans in Japan will get the chance to see the son of the legendary Joichiro Tatsuyoshi take part in his first 6 round bout. That will see the young Juiki Tatsuyoshi (4-0, 2) [辰吉寿以輝] take on Indonesian fighter Rio Nainggolan (2-2, 2)* in a 6 round bout at a contracted 122lbs.
On the scales Tatsuyoshi was well under the maximum, coming in at 120.8lbs, which is significantly lower than he was last time out, when he struggled to take a win over the determined Kazuki Sanpei. Despite being the taller man here he was also the lighter man, with the Indonesian weighing in at just under 121.5lbs, which we believe will is the heaviest weight of his career.
Following the weigh in their did appear to be a steely determination from Tatsuyoshi who seemed like a man with a point to prove, stating that he was going to stop Nainggolan, he has however gone the distance in his last 2 bouts and hasn't looked great in them
The two men will not have their bout shown live tomorrow but it will be shown on delay over the coming days. Tomorrow night YTV in Kansai will be airing the contest whilst G+ will show it a week later.
