(WBC Light Flyweight Title)
Light flyweight champion of the World Boxing Council, Kenshiro Teraji (17-0, 10 KO), will defend his title against his mandatory challenger and compatriot, Tetsuya Hisada (34-10-2, 20 KO), this Saturday, April 24 , at the EDION Arena, Osaka, Japan.
Both fighters passed the official weigh-in of the evening without a problem. Teraji posted 107.1 pounds, while Hisada stopped the scale at 107.8 pounds.
Kenshiro commented at the end of the weigh-in: “I am in great physical condition. I am going to get a great victory and I will continue to reap triumphs in my career.”
Teraji’s goal is to break a record in Japanese boxing in having the most consecutive defenses of a world title, which belongs to the light flyweight Yoko Gushiken with 13 defenses.
Hisada commented: “I am psyched up and with great determination to win. I’m going to show the great training I had to become the new Green and Gold Champion.”
If Tetsuya, 36, wins the fight, he would break the record for being the oldest Japanese boxer to win a world title. Currently that mark is held by Hozumi Hasegawa, who conquered the WBC super bantamweight title at 35 years and 9 months.
