Yuki Beppu (7-0, 7) Vs Hironobu Matsunaga (6-0, 3)
This past Sunday saw the end of the 2014 Rookie of the Year competition. One of the best bouts on the show was the Welterweight bout which saw the heavy handed Yuki Beppu battle against Hironobu Matsunaga. On paper it was one of the best contests on the show putting unbeaten fighters against each other whilst in the ring it proved to be genuinely thrilling as both men fought with the belief that their power would win the bout. This is relatively short but very exciting.

One of the most interesting fighters to emerge from the 2014 Rookie of the Year competition is the heavy handed Yuki Beppu who moved to 7-0 (7) as he booked his place in the All-Japan Rookie of the Year final and stopped Shota Yamamoto.
We won't pretend that Beppu is the most skilled fighter you'll see but it's hard to dislike his bludgeoning attack which looks to combine heavy shots, weird angles and a really offensive and exciting mentality. Whether he proves to be a prospect or not is still in the air but he'll certainly be fun to follow.

The hard hitting and very exciting Yuki Beppu will be going for his 7th straight stoppage victory in November. Although we don't have footage of all of his fights we have managed to track down his 3rd fight, his bout with Tatsuro Ono.
The bout, which lasted less than 100 seconds saw Beppu showing his boxing ability at times though it was his killer instinct that was really impressive and when he hurt Ono he really didn't let him off the hook trying to break him quickly. We won't pretend Beppu will become a world champion but on footage like this he is going to become someone that we enjoy watching.
It's fair to say that most fight fans love power, aggression and and a mentality based around scoring stoppages. That, in some ways, describes Japanese Welterweight hopeful Yuki Beppu who has begun his career with 6 straight stoppages, the most recent of which came against Shinpei Tominaga in a "blink and you'll miss it" performance just a few short months ago.
When you hear the opening bell for this one we advise you don't look away.
Here we include some of the best, most interesting, most exciting or most eye catching videos from around the Asian boxing world.
