Earlier this year we saw the professional debut of Rentaro Kimura (0-0), as he faced off with Yuya Azuma (5-3-1, 1) at Korakuen Hall. The match up was highly anticipated, because of how successful Kimura had been as an amateur, and was expected to be a test for Kimura.
Although there was no fans for this bout, given what was going on in the world when the bout took place, the bout it's self is one that really does deserve attention, and it's a shame that Kimura's debut did lack a live crowd. Saying that however, he has kept us talking about him since this bout took place! He is really one to keep an eye on going forward, as you'll see by the end of this bout.
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
