This morning at a currently scheduled time of 7:15 am ET from Osaka, Japan, WBA junior flyweight titleholder Hiroto Kyoguchi will be defending his belt against veteran challenger Tetsuya Hisada, and we’ve got the live stream up top and we’ll be here with coverage.
Kyoguchi (13-0, 9 KO) is one of the top 108-pound fighters in the world today, alongside countryman and WBC titleholder Ken Shiro, who just fought at this same venue on July 12, stopping Jonathan Taconing in the fourth round.
The 25-year-old Kyoguchi turned pro about three-and-a-half years ago, and won the OPBF 105-pound belt in his sixth pro fight, and the IBF 105-pound belt in his eighth pro fight in July 2017. He made three successful defenses, then moved up on New Year’s Eve last year, stopping Hekkie Budler in the 10th round to claim the WBA title at 108. He last fought on June 16, winning a decision over Satanmuanglek CP Freshmart.
Hisada (34-9-2, 20 KO) is a 34-year-old with 16 years of pro experience, and is also coming in on a 13-fight win streak, during which he won the Japanese title at 108 and defended it successfully five times. A win over Kyoguchi would be easily the biggest of his career, and it’s without question the biggest fight he’s ever had.
The stream doesn’t look like it will have anything from the undercard, and this fight isn’t actually even televised in Japan, it’s just this live stream.
