More Midweek Mayhem!!
Predictions: 3 of 6 Winners, 0 Perfect, 165 Points | 40th Place
Main event for the Japanese Flyweight Title features to top 20 World ranked boxers. Yuri Akui, the Champ, is the more experienced, higher ranked boxer. Kuwahara is the up n comer, very good Japanese amateur. Strangely he's the older of the 2? At 26, Akui is younger in age but older in boxing career terms. Also we have the classic clash of styles in Pressure Puncher, Akui vs Classic Boxer, Kuwahara.
Ishii vs Minamide is not your typical 3-1 vs 4-1 level fight. It's at a WAY higher level than what you'd usually see.
I think that this will be live on YouTube? Not sure, will find out and post link if it is
