Ryota Murata to target Billy Joe Saunders


Recommended Posts

Yesterday fans watching on the Top Rank youtube channel or CCTV 5 saw Japan's 2012 Olympic Hero Ryota Murata (9-0, 6) [村田 諒太] score a 2nd round TKO win over Argentinian fighter Gaston Alejandro Vega (24-11-1-1, 10) in a bout staged in Shanghai. That bout saw Murasta extend his unbeaten record and kick off 2016 with a bout that had some moments of excitement.


Today, following that bout, the Japanese press went relatively crazy with a number of articles about the contest and the post fight press conference, which took place today.


At that press conference Teiken president Akihiko Honda [本田 明彦] layed down Teiken plans for their Middleweight hopeful.


As previously reported the immediate future seems to be a US training camp, which is to take place in March and see Murata sharing the ring with some top sparring partners as he looks to make some drastic improvements and prepare himself for some world level competition later in the year.
