Very interesting fight has been made on December 7th. Kenichi Ogawa (24-1-0-1, 18KOs), who was IBF super featherweight champion for about two minutes until he was stripped following a failed drugs test, is going against "Jaw Breaker" Joe Noynay (18-2-1, 7KOs). In his last fight, Noynay caused an upset as he hammered previously unbeaten Satoshi Shimizu inside six rounds.

Supposed to be fighting his mandatory Jeyvier Cintron (11-0-0-1, 5KOs) next. Although a purse bid was supposed to happen at the start of September, so not sure what's going on with this one.
According to Asian Boxing, this is likely to land in Tokyo on New Year's Eve.

Expecting Mthalane to prevail over Yaegashi in the battle of the senior flys in what should be a war.

And the return of Kenshiro:

Love this snippet:

"Randy Petalcorin is a sleep away from another world title fight."

I may be missing something lost in translation but Petalcorin may very well be doing his best Manny impression of napping on the canvas.

Yaegashi's last dance. "The Amazing Boy" Kenshiro to upset the Filipinos again. Chocolatito returns to Japan. Murata looking to avoid another career derailment against puncher Butler.

Great show.

For those interested, Top Rank will be streaming the four main fights live. 3:55 ET/8:55 GMT.

On the stacked Japan show tomorrow, there's a very interesting match-up on the undercard. Hyped 20-year-ol Ginjiro Shigeoka (4-0, 3KOs) is going up against puncher Rey Loreto (25-14, 17KOs) over 12 rounds.

Loreto is 17-3 over his last 20 fights. His last eight wins have also come by stoppage. Sadly he has only had one fight since Shigeoka turned pro, which could harm his chances of springing an upset.

Shigeoka knocks out Loreto in the 5th round.

Statement made.
