A new presentation of the World Boxing Association (WBA) light flyweight champion, Kenshiro Teraji, will mark the main fight of the night this Saturday at the Ariake Arena, in Koto Ku, Japan. The unified champion of the division will face young Anthony Olascuaga in an interesting fight.
Kenshiro is coming off a big knockout over Hiroto Kyoguchi in November last year. On that occasion he took the WBA title from him and added it to his showcase, which already had the WBC title.
Teraji is known for his volume of punches and his great physical condition, which makes him capable of demolishing his opponents and fighting at a frenetic pace despite the big challenges he has faced.
Olascuaga comes into this bout because WBO champion Jonathan Gonzalez, who was Teraji’s original opponent, was unable to fight due to illness. The 24 year old took on the challenge and will travel to Asia for this opportunity that is worth gold for his career.
He has a short professional career but his talent is undoubted. The big question is whether his little experience will play against him, but he has the conditions to be crowned and that is what he wants to do in Japan.
Kenshiro’s record is 20 wins, 1 loss and 12 knockouts, while Olascuaga has 5 wins and 3 knockouts.
