Naoko Fujioka visited her alma mater to carry a message of overcoming in Japan

The Japanese World Champion Naoko Fujioka (21-2-1, 18 KO’s) visited her Alma Mater, Furukawa High School in Japan, in order to share her experiences in the sport and her personal improvement with the students of the campus.

Fujioka was not only an exemplary student, she is also one of the great representatives of women’s and world boxing.

She has reigned in 5 different divisions; minimumweight, jr flyweight, flyweight, bantamweight, and today in the WBA super-flyweight division – an achievement that she reached after beating the Mexican Irma Sanchez in September of 2018.

It is a great pride for the WBA to see Naoko Fujioka’s initiative to visit her youth high school, to make it clear once again that sport is a vehicle for improvement and that it can help you achieve great things but more importantly to forge yourself as a good human being.
