In July 2013 fight fans in Tokyo got their first chance to see Masayoshi Nakatani (5-0, 4), as he travelled to the Japanese capital to take on former Rookie of the Year winner Shuhei Tsuchiya (14-1, 12) in an 8 round Lightweight clash.
For Nakatani this was a step up in class following a string of lower level wins whilst Tsuchiya was looking to bounce back from a February loss to Shoji Kawase.
For those who haven't seen this one it is well worthy of a watch, just to see how good Nakatani looked very early in his career, and to show what an advanced prospect he was just a couple of years after his debut.
With Nakatani set to fight in the US later this month we thought it was a great time to give fans a chance to see an early Nakatani bout given our English Language treatmen. We hope you enjoy!
