Hiroto Kyoguchi will be one of the attractions of this Saturday’s event at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. The Japanese fighter will defend his World Boxing Association (WBA) Light Flyweight Super Championship against Mexican Axel Aragon Vega in what will be his first appearance in the United States.
The fight will take place in the undercard of the event organized by Matchroom, which will have Roman Gonzalez and Juan Francisco Estrada fighting for the WBA Super Flyweight belt, in addition to the unification bout between Jessica McCaskill and Cecilia Braekhus for all the welterweight titles.
Last week it was reported that Kyoguchi was leaving Japan to land in America to finalize details for his fight. The 27-year-old Japanese will be making his first fight after a year and a half of inactivity due to the pandemic, but he is motivated to surprise the public on this side of the world.
He will fight a young fighter like the Mexican, who has been involved in several wars at only 20 years of age and is the Fedecentro champion of the pioneer organization. The Mexico City native has won four of his last five fights and wants to ruin the WBA champion’s party.
This week the different promotional activities prior to the fight will take place, including the press conference and the weigh-in ceremony on Friday, in which both will have to mark the 108 pounds of the division.
Kyoguchi undefeated in 14 fights, 9 of them by KO. Aragon Vega has 14 wins, 3 losses, 1 draw, and 8 KOs.
