Atsushi Kakutani Will Try To Knock Adrian Hernandez Out

TOKYO — As previously reported, Atsushi Kakutani will challenge World Boxing Council (WBC) light flyweight champion Adrian Hernandez of Mexico next month, his gym said on Thursday.

It will be the first attempt by Kakutani, ranked 12th in the WBC, at a world title and will take place in Mexico City on August 10.

“I know I’m the underdog on his home ground, but I’m going to train hard to win. I’ll try to beat him by a KO,” said Kakutani, 28.

Kakutani has a record of 13 wins, including six KOs, against three defeats and a draw.

The 27-year-old Hernandez has 27 wins, including 16 KOs against two defeats and a draw. It will be his third defense of the title.
