Every year the Japanese Rookie of the Year tournament seems to make us aware of some new prospects who haven't come with a huge amateur background. At the end of this year we might end up being very excited about Super Featherweight puncher Hikaru Akutsu. In the video below you will see Akutsu's power more than make up for his less than stellar skills and in fact with this sort of power a fighter can go a very long way.
We have to admit we are a little bit sorry for Hikaru Komori who looked like a solid boxer before being rocked. If he can build on what he has with experience he can certainly become a fighter to keep an eye on himself.
