Let’s just call it for what it really is…and cut through the overpopulated belt system. There are 1️⃣2️⃣ legitimate World Champions going in the world of boxing today (nine male & three female), and 3 of them happen to be defending on the same fight card on Saturday, in back-to-back-to-back fights. RING-MAGAZINE/WBA Light-Flyweight Champion of the World 🇯🇵Hiroto Kyoguchi (14-0-0, 9KO👊) will be the first of the line-up, defending his honor, and doing so on a land that he is unfamiliar with, being that this is the first time the 27 year old Japanese boxer will fight in front of an American crowd, with a brand new 🏟️audience to showcase his high level of talent for.
His assignment for the night will be #10 WBA world contender 🇲🇽Axel Aragon Vega (14-3-1, 8KO👊) of Mexico, who will be making his first attempt at the world title. As for Kyoguchi, he is an important cog for what is the 🔱Golden-age of Japanese boxing right now, and universally ranks as one of their 4 or 5 best going today. He is also one of the rare pressure boxers that we have going in divisions south of Flyweight, and he is versatile in his approach, where he can mix it up to box, and counterpunch as well. To see what he can do inside the ring, tune into 💻DAZN’s streaming application on Saturday.
