Hiroto Kyoguchi will face Kenshiro Teraji on November 1 at the Super Arena in Saitama in a unification bout for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Light Flyweight Championship and the WBC title.
Both are probably the two best fighters in the division and their bout has been talked about for the past few years, so there is much anticipation in Japan and the world following the confirmation of the fight.
Kyoguchi will be making the fifth defense of his 108-pound crown after having fought in the United States and Mexico. He will fight for the first time in his home country since 2019 in a great way to return against his compatriot.
Teraji is coming off a tough period but is in great shape. In September last year he lost to Masamichi Yabuki by knockout and lost his world title but took the rematch in March this year and regained it with a win by the same route.
Kyoguchi is undefeated in 16 professional fights, of them by 11 knockouts, while Teraji has 19 wins, 1 loss and 11 knockouts.
