    I can only assume the Sunday one will prove better, aesthetically: Inoue's normally worth a watch (though this is another shite opponent for the lad) & Yaegashi couldn't be in a dull fight in an empty room:

    I just remembered there's another event in Japan on 5-20, it will be young champion boxer, kosei tanaka. He's already world champ at only 5 fights only at 21 years old. He's going to defend his belt against, 16-0 (16 ko) Puerto Rican's Angel Acosta. And I heard that it will be live on YouTube :D

    Yeeesss, thought there was another fight worth watching! That's a bit of a test for Tanaka imo, Acosta can bang (though I think he's one-dimensional & wide open defensively, from the little I've seen).

    That works out at... Er... [counts on fingers]... Eight a.m. UK time?

    I might even get to catch it before work! Thank you for reminding me.
