P4P Talent

Put my boy Kenny Shiro on the P4P list!!!! 

Maybe the smoothest 1,2 in the game at present. The way he fires it off so smooth yet piston like with power is a thing of beauty!  The little skip step backs then bouncing into a hard 2 is another thing I enjoy very much!!! 

Pure class!  Japan really has a great era of boxing talent at the moment. P4P no 2 (or 1 arguably) The Monster Inoue, fringe top 10 for the past 5 years Kazuto Ioka, future P4P 2 weight World Champion Junto Nakatani and Kenshiro who should be top 10 P4P now. Plus there's countless other Champions, Contenders and top prospects. Not too shabby!!!
