The five-fight card is headlined by WBC/WBA light flyweight world champion Kenshiro “The Amazing Boy” Teraji and undefeated American challenger Anthony Olascuaga (5-0, 3 KOs).
Teraji was supposed to face WBO champ Jonathan Gonzalez in a unification bout, but Gonzalez fell ill during training camp and was forced to withdraw from the fight. Olascuaga stepped in and this is an opportunity of the life time for the Los Angeles based fighter.
Popular MMA and Kickboxing star Tenshin Nasukawa’s will make his pro boxing debut on the fight card. The former multi-division kickboxing world champion will take on Yuki Yonaha in junior featherweight bout set for 6-rounds of action.
Nasukawa is best known in the boxing world for his exhibition boxing bout against retired boxing star Floyd Mayweather in December of 2018.
