Returning to the ring one of Japan’s best fighters currently going today, RING-MAGAZINE/WBA Light-Flyweight Champion of the World ♛🇯🇵Hiroto Kyoguchi (12-0-0, 9KO) is looking to make his first defense of his reign by fighting #10 WBA contender 🇹🇭Tanawat Nakoon (11-0-0, 5KO) of Thailand.
Kyoguchi became a 2-Division World Champion in just 12 professional fights after moving up from the Minimumweight division to take on previous RING-MAGAZINE Champion 🇿🇦Hekkie Budler at Light-Flyweight, and dominated the gutsy South African boxer, securing a late TKO victory in the 10th round and taking his Title Belts. With a very talented and active group of fighters at Light-Flyweight (the most underrated division in boxing) Kyoguchi wants to get off on the right foot as the Champion, to reassert his skill level towards future combatants while taking care of business here in a few days. Tanawat Nakoon is relatively unknown, in large taking on some local competition, so here he has a seismic jump-up in competition here, so he better be mentally prepared for his first opportunity at a World Title. This fight will be on the undercard of Kazuto Ioka/Aston Palicte that will take place on June 19th at a location in Japan.
