Koji Irving - "Victoria"
Last week we featured a song used for Masayuki Kuroda's first world title fight, against Juan Carlos Reveco, what's worth noting is there was a whole new track released for Kuroda's second world title bout, his 2019 clash with Moruti Mthalane.
This was "Victoria" by Koji Irving which not only acted as a catchy little song to help inspire Kuroda but also featured Kuroda as a star in the video.
Irving, for those unaware, is a Latin guitarist, singer, composer, goodwill ambassador and plenty of other things. He was born in Mexico but has lived in Japan since he was 7 and this was one of his most notable tracks, helping him get attention with boxing fans.
Given how the previous Kuroda related track sounded like a pub song this is very different. This is polished, professional, toe tappingly catchy, and deliberately something you can sing along with in the chorus. A smart bit of work here by Koji Irving!
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
