Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

We are live this morning with coverage of a big triple-header from Japan, and we welcome you to join us for live updates and results, followed by immediate post-fight analysis.

In the main event, Hozumi Hasegawa faces Mexico's Jhonny Gonzalez in a battle of top 10 featherweights. Also on the card, super featherweights Takahiro Ao and Humberto Gutierrez do battle. In the super bantamweight division, it will be Toshiaki Nishioka taking on Argentina's Mauricio Javier Munoz.

This is the first really major boxing card in Japan since the tragic natural disasters of March, and is the most and most important fight card of the weekend, and one of the best of the month.

Don't forget to check out our preview for slightly more in-depth views, but the gist is that Hasegawa-Gonzalez is really one of the most interesting matchups currently on the schedule, with the former bantamweight standouts now two divisions north of what was probably their peak weight, but still quality fighters.
