    I will be communicating with Fighting Harada as part of my research for my Eder Jofre book.

    Are there any questions that you guys would like to ask? I will be sending my questions next week.

    Pretty much all of his title fights were seperated by one or two non-title bouts. I'd like to know his opinion on the value of a champion using non-title bout to stay sharp, to earn extra money, etc. In his era it was decently common to do, with the title being on the line for only the true contenders, but it has practically disapeared during the last several generations. Does he view this as a bad thing or a good thing?

    I'd also like to know how he was persuaded to travel to Kingpetch's home territory of Thailand for their rematch? He had finished Kingpetch and he was the champ, so why risk his championship while taking an 'away game'?

    Glad you’re actually writing the book Chris

    For Harada I think you need to ask him if he really felt the rematch with Jofre was easier than the first one.

    I'd be interested if he's bitter at all over the result of the first Famechon fight (arguably robbed of becoming a three division undisputed champion) and Willie Pep's refereeing and interesting scoring. Also who he thought was the superior fighter of Rose and Fammo would be worthwhile knowing.

    I noticed he was at the Inoue v Donaire fight and looking well.
    Good luck with the book Jofre was great,and my number 1 bantam.

    Thanks and yeah he seems to be doing well. He retired young and didn’t come back. I think he kept himself active and healthy.

    Maybe just for me Chris, if I'm not late, but could you PLEASE ask him about his trainer and his training in general? There's no info I can find at all. I can't even find his trainers name?

    I'd be very interested to know how he developed such elite skills on his feet, with his jab etc.

    Would be great to know. Thanks. I know it's probably not useful for a Jofre book, but I can hope...
