For the second successive day this week the Korakuen Hall is the host to a notable card in Tokyo. Despite only 2 bouts being known about on boxrec it's expected that several more bouts will be shown though in all honesty those two bouts alone would make the show worthy of catching.
In an 8 round Heavyweight bout former K1 champion Kyotaro Fujimoto (5-1, 3) attempts to bounce back from his loss last time out to Solomon Haumono as he faces Frenchman Fabrice Aurieng (7-4, 2). Although Fujimoto lost to Haumono in an OPBF Heavyweight title bout there is still quite a lot of hope on the 26 year old who has solid boxing fundementals but didn't have the experience for a hard hitting fighter like Haumono, especially not when the crowd appeared to turn on him.
With Aurieng now the French Heavyweight champion this international bout could well help put Fujimoto back on the boxing map and would genuinely be a solid win for Japanese Heavyweight.
In the other notable bout Japanese Super Bantamweight champion Hidenori Otake (19-1-3, 9) attempts to make the second defense of the title he won in December as he takes on Coronita Doi (26-13-8, 9). This will be Doi's second attempt at the title after losing a prior shot back in 2001 against Junichi Watanabe.
Having been stopped 8 times in his 13 bouts it's almost impossible to see a way that the 34 (soon to be 35) year old Doi could upset the champion who takes a 14 fight unbeaten streak in to this bout ncluding very notable bouts in his last 2 bouts.
