    On May 1, Tokyo based IT company will promote a boxing event that features 8 man tournament. Its winner will challenge Tenshin Nasukawa in a boxing match later this year.

    Many showed for the audition last week including former WBA super flyweight champion Tepparith Singwancha who passed basic screening and is now scheduled for sparring test.

    30 year old Thai is believed to be the eventual winner of the qualifier tournament.

    They've done this pro vs joe fight show a few times before on internet tv but Nasukawa is the first man to possibly face a professional opponent.

    Prize money paid for the challenger's win is 10000000 yen. (A Yen is about one cent. )

    Tepparith is too fat for this shit lol

    Dude needs to go and diet first.

    They already screen out bunch of prospects and ranked pro fighters, aren't they? The only ones left in the tourney, are the ones they are sure that Tenshin could beat.

    I know there was one Japanese retired boxer with decent pro record that gave up with his entry after vowing to knock out nasukawa because his wife threatened to divorce him.

    Is this what gets combat sport fans fired up over there???

    Kind of sad a guy at Tenshin's level has to be a part of this fiasco/stunt. Oh well, I'm sure he is making some good money for it.

    Pft it is like KSI Vs Logan Paul. Every country loves freakshow match ups, the fans just hate to admit it.
