December 31st 2014- Bodymaker Colosseum, Osaka, Osaka, Japan
Katsunari Takayama (27-7-0-1, 10) Vs Go Odaira (11-3-3, 1)
In the west fighters seem to fight for money and history second. In Japan history, records and achievements seem to matter almost as much as a bank account and fighters are happy to chase their own little bits of history. One such fighter who has chased history through his career is little dynamo Katsunari Takayama who set his eyes on becoming Japan's first ever "Grandslam" champion. Takayama failed in his first attempt to achieve that feat, falling short against Francisco Rodriguez Jr but got a second bite at the cherry at the end of 2014 as he battled Go Odaira for the WBO and IBF Minimumweight titles. Odaira on the other hand was fighting to finish off a career year in style. If you've not seen this it is worth the time and effort to give it a watch.
