Jin Sasaki (11-0 10 KO) vs Andy Hiraoka (17-0 12 KO) for the vacant Japanese Super Light title and the vacant WBO Asia Pacific Super Light title on October 19th. Jin Sasaki has been a power house prospect so far throughout his career, only allowing one opponent to go the distance in a four rounder. Recently he fought undefeated Kaiki Yuba and was knocked down a few times before knocking out the defending champion in round two. It was the first time he had been knocked down, and he seemed unhurt, taunting his opponent throughout the fight. Fights sort of like a mini Mike Tyson, uses the peekaboo style and loves his power punches. Is 5’8.5. Andy Hiraoka is also a former JBC Youth champion, also winning his title by stoppage. He has trained with Mayweather and in several other American gyms. He seems to be more popular with western boxing publications and is coming in as a favorite, arguably quite deservedly after Sasaki had to pick himself up off the ground three times to get the KO, although against a very good domestic opponent, and in round two. Hiraoka uses his reach and jab a lot more than Sasaki, but is correctly known as a power puncher. He’s 5’11, tall for the division, and uses this to his advantage.
