This Friday night in Tokyo, World Boxing Council Flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi (20-3, 10 KOs), will defend his title against the two time world champion, Nicaraguan Roman "Chocolatito" Gonzalez (39-0, 33 KOs) in what is expected to be a barn burner!
At a press conference held in Tokyo, challenger and champion were finally face to face for the first time.
Yaegashi snatched the WBC championship from Toshiyuki Igarashi last year and he has already made three successful defenses, including a decision victory over Mexican former world champion Edgar Sosa.
Brilliant rookie world champion Naoya Inoue (6-0, 5 KOs) will make the first defense of his light flyweight title of the World Boxing Council against Thailand's Samartlek Kokietgym (17-4, 5 KOs).
