Boyeaux confesses that he came to Japan in search of a surprising triumph over the big favorite in Inoue.

Shiro, who is going to hold his third fight involving the world title, says with a totally lively tone - "I have a strong desire to become a world champion with greater fame through fighting on live broadcast TV for the whole country of Japan. My previous two world title fights were not televised because I am not a very well known boxer, so I had a bitter experience in that sense."
