On July 18th, the Senrima Boxing Gym will organize a card where the vacant super flyweight world championship of the International Boxing Federation (IBF) will be at stake. Japanese-Korean Teiru Kinoshita (19-0-1, 3KOs, 28 years of age and IBF #3) will face fellow southpaw Zolani Tete (18-3, 16KOs, 25 years old and IBF #1) of South Africa. The belt was left vacant by the Japan's Daiki Kameda. The fight takes place at the Portopia Hotel in Kobe, Hyogo, Japan. The capacity for the fight is three thousand spectators.
 
It is the first time in the history of Japanese boxing, since May 1952, that a fight for will be organized for the absolute world title at the hotel.

Kinoshita will have his first world title experience, while Tete aims to be world champion in his second attempt after his defeat by TKO in the fifth round to compatriot Moruti Mthalane in 2010 for IBF crown.
 
In his most recent fight, Tete scored a tenth round knockout over Mexican Juan Carlos Sanchez Jr. in Mexicali in November 2013 in an IBF final eliminator.
 
The tough puncher Tete is a dangerous opponent for Kinoshita, who is a distance boxer with fast legs. Kinoshita, who has Korean parents, was born and raised in Osaka. He had an amateur record of 65 wins and 15 losses. In 2008, Kinoshita turned pro and he won the Japanese title in March 2013.

A loss would be a big setback for Kinoshita and Tete, who is 3-2 in his last 5, cannot afford to suffer another defeat.

[QUOTE=ßringer]This thread serves as a perfect demonstration of why we need to remove the swear filter here. You can bypass it if you want to anyway and with it in place it leads to stupid errors like the one in the thread title. It's fucking bullshit.[/QUOTE] :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: ...

[QUOTE=Hougigo]But....think of the children[/QUOTE] Fuck the children. Not literally, of course. That's just disturbing.
