For the latest in our 5 Bouts to enjoy during Isolation series we've decided to go with a theme, and the theme here is the Super Featherweight division, with all the bouts being featured taking place at 130lbs!
The Super Featherweight might not be one of the "Original 8" but it's hard to deny just how great the division has been over the years and we're now going to bring you just a tiny bit of the great stuff the division has delivered in Asia!
The 5 bouts selected include some top class action at world level and some lower level action, but it is all brilliant just a sliver of the great stuff the division has given us!
Yusaku Sekishima (6-1, 4) vs Ken Koibuchi (4-1, 3) 
Daiki Kaneko (26-5-3, 18) Vs Pavel Malikov (11-0, 5) 
Taek-Min Kim (13-3, 8) vs Sonny Manakane (14-9-3, 8) 
Takanori Hatakeyama (20-0-1, 15) vs Koji Arisawa (18-0, 15) 
Yong Soo Choi (21-2, 13) Vs Lakva Sim (5-0, 4) 
We know fans are itching to watch great fights and are looking forward to the current suspension of the sport being lifted. Of course we still have to wait, we have to be patient, and we have to realise how awful things are in the world. Despite having to wait, we don't need to forget the past.
Boxing is, thankfully, one of the sports with the richest histories, and the archive of great fights really is incredibly deep, as those who follow our Closet Classic series will be aware of. With that in mind we've decided to share some of the bouts we've been watching recently as part of our time at home. So, for those looking to watch something amazing during their isolation, here are 5 great bouts that we'd suggest sitting and enjoying.
For the basis of this article we've tried to pick a mix of bouts that could have made a 5 fight card. So we've picked a couple of low key opening style bouts (bouts scheduled for 4 or 6 rounds), then a few bigger bouts (domestic or regional title level) and finally a world title bout to close it off. Unlike the Closet Classic and Treasure Trove series, we're not going to talk about the fights. Just let you enjoy them!
Ieyasu Yashiro (0-0) vs Ricardo Arredondo Jr (0-0) 
Kodai Honda (4-1, 3) vs Yasutaka Fujita (5-0, 5) 
Rex Tso (21-0, 13) Vs Kohei Kono (33-10-1, 14) 
Koji Arisawa (18-0, 15) vs Takanori Hatakeyama (20-0-1, 15) 
Takuya Muguruma (25-1-1, 19) vs Chan Young Park (24-3-2, 7) 
Thinking Out East
With this site being pretty successful so far we've decided to open up about our own views and start what could be considered effectively an editorial style opinion column dubbed "Thinking Out East" (T.O.E).
