Prediction Comments

Santiago vs. Nakatani
Junto Nakatani, TKO, R7
Junto is the next Japanese boxer to enter the top 10 P4P. It's pretty incredible how much great boxers hail from Japan at the moment. Inoue is 2 weight Undisputed and is 1a or b alongside Bud Crawford. Kenshiro has long been the best Light Flyweight on the planet at least top 10 P4P. Kazuto Ioka is a 4 weight World Champion and has been in or on the fringes of the top 10 for almost a decade. Also on this card Kosei Tanaka is attempting to become the fastest ever 4 weight World Champion since Oscar de la Hoya! And now we have Junto Nakatani going for his 3rd weight class title and if he does it(he will) he will be a legitimate P4P boxer. That's 3 maybe 4 or 5 of the P4P top 10 being from Japan. Crazy!!! Also Nakatani is an all offense, great technical KO artist! Well worth getting ul to watch!

Tremendous New Predictions

Tanaka vs. Bacasegua
I lean towards Kosei Tanaka at -370. He has a radical high kick. Tanaka might assault the TV audience.

Santiago vs. Nakatani
I am loyal to Junto Nakatani at -540. He has a venomous kouchi gari and a quick left hand and also a maniacal fight IQ. Nakatani could choke the cycle.

Inoue vs. Ancajas
I take Takuma Inoue at -230. He has a woebegone kimura and a lascivious full nelson and also a zingy armpit slam. Inoue will perform the victory.
