For Kento, it will be the most important bout of his short but unblemished career since November 2016. Abcede displayed his strength to Japanese fans by disposing of our prospect Yuri Akui in eight rounds here last October. The promoter Kiyoshi, the first world champ ever produced in Nagoya, said, “I wish to have Kento follow my footstep and acquire the world belt in the near future.” Good luck.
