Nasukawa to make debut against with Japan's 4th ranked Bantamweight fighter
Tenshin Nasukawa will make his debut as a professional boxer. Tenshin Nasukawa has won all 42 of his kickboxing fights (28 KOs) and is well known for his strength. Last year, he announced his transition from kickboxing to boxing and has been preparing for his debut by training intensively in the United States in the fall. In addition to his kickboxing, Nasukawa has been able to win many of his KOs with his fast and long left straight and well-timed right hook from his southpaw stance during his kickboxing days, and we are looking forward to seeing what he can do in boxing.
His opponent, Yuki Yonaha (Japan), is an aggressive fighter with a record of 17 fights, 12 wins (8 KOs), 4 losses, and 1 draw in his 10-year professional career. Moreover, he is ranked No. 4 in the Japanese Bantamweight division (as of January 31). His right straight, left hook, and right uppercut are destructive.This match will be a 6 round Super Bantamweight bout.
Teraji looks to unify the 3rd Light Flyweight title against the WBO champion. Takuma Inoue to fight for the Bantamweight title.
Teraji vs. González bout will unify the WBA/WBC/WBO Light Flyweight titles. Both fighters were on the same event on November 1 of last year. Teraji, the WBC champion, won by TKO in the 7th round over the WBA Super Champion Kyoguchi to become the WBC/WBO Unified Champion. González successfully defended his WBO title for the second time with a 12 round decision win over Shokichi Iwata (Japan). Teraji, who has improved his offensive power in the last two fights, and González, who is skilled in tactics, are expected to have a spectacular fight.
Takuma Inoue vs. Solis for the WBA World Bantamweight title is another interesting bout. Inoue is coming off a four-fight winning streak after losing his interim WBC Bantamweight title to Nordine Oubaali in November 2019. A former WBA World Super Flyweight champion Solis will be fighting to become a two-division Champion. It will be interesting to see if Takuma Inoue, who has improved both offensively and defensively, can win one of the titles vacated by his older brother, former Undisputed Bantamweight Champion Naoya Inoue.
Martinez vs. Abe will be held as an elimination fight for the IBF Featherweight division. Martinez, who has fought in Japan before, is a former world 2-division champion with 57 fights under his belt. It will also be interesting to see how Abe, who is known for his flexible boxing style, fares against such a fierce competitor. The bout between Obara, ranked No. 8 in WBO Welterweight Division, with experience in world title fights, and Sasaki, WBO Asia-Pacific Champion, with 81 percent knock-out rate, will also be a fight that will be hard to take your eyes off from the opening bell. This survival match between the two world-ranked fighters will inevitably end in KO.
These matches will also be available exclusively on Prime Video livestream.
