Rentaro Kimura (3-0, 3) Vs Hikaru Fukunaga (8-1, 5)
Last week the very highly regarded Rentaro Kimura [木村蓮太朗] faced his toughest opponent to date, as he went up against the aggressive and free swinging Hikaru Fukunaga [福永輝]. The match up had two men with very different styles trading shots in a very enjoyable contest.
Sadly Fuji TV only aired a digest version of the bout, compressing a 6 round fight in to a little under 4 minutes. A real shame.
