Masayuki Ito Looks to Defend his World Title Against Iron-Clad Jamel Herring

Top Rank Boxing’s newest addition, WBO Super-Featherweight World Titlist Masayuki Ito (25-1-1, 13KO) will take to the ring for the first time since signing his new deal to fight former Marine-Sergeant & #9 WBO ranked contender Jamel ‘Semper Fi’ Herring (19-2-0, 10KO) as the headliner on Saturday’s ESPN card.

Roughly 10 months ago, Ito earned a Unanimous Decision over the imposing Pitufo Diaz to win the vacant WBO strap, and he has one defense under his belt where he defeated previously unbeaten Evgeny Chuprakov with a TKO victory. Herring is a tough opponent, of course backed up by his previous profession, who possesses pretty solid boxing skills that should make for an interesting encounter between he and the man fighting out of Tokyo, Japan. This fight will take place at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Florida.
