Photos: Akira Yaegashi, Roman Gonzalez Face Off in Tokyo

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).

This fight is why BoxNation should one day look to go international. Who the **** wouldn't pay for a 24/7 boxing channel? I could careless if we rotate in between UK and American casters... just want 24/7 boxing with all…
