Boxing Gym’s title defense against former WBA light flyweight champion Carlos Canizales of Venezuela.

  The WBA’s top-ranked flyweight Seigo ‘’Yuri’ Akui of Kurashiki Moriyasu Boxing Gym will challenge champion Artem Dalakian of Ukraine for the latter’s title.

  Kickboxer-turned Tenshin Nasukawa of Teiken Boxing Gym, who is currently ranked seventh in the Japanese super bantamweight division, will face Luis Robles of Mexico, ranked 13th in the WBA bantamweight division and 14th in the same division by the World Boxing Organization, in an eight-round fight.

  Juiki Tatsuyoshi of Osaka Teiken Boxing Gym, a son of former legendary World Boxing Council bantamweight champion Joichiro Tatsuyoshi, will face 11th-ranked Japanese bantamweight Yuki Yonaha of Shinsei Boxing Gym in an eight-round bout.

  Meanwhile, the event entitled Prime Video Presents Live Boxing 7 at Ryogoku Kokugikan Sumo Arena, will be led by former WBO super flyweight champion Junto Nakatani of M.T Boxing Gym’s challenge to the WBC bantamweight kingpin Alexandro Santiago of Mexico for the latter’s title as Nakatani relinquished his WBO title.

   WBA bantamweight champion Takuma Inoue of Ohashi Boxing Gym will make his first title defense against sixth-ranked Jerwin Ancajas of the Philippines. While the fight was originally expected in November, it was postponed due to Inoue having suffered cracked ribs during training.

Top-ranked WBO super flyweight Kosei Tanaka of Soul Box Hatanaka Boxing Gym will face second-ranked Christian Bacasegua of Mexico for the WBO super flyweight title just vacated by Nakatani. If Tanaka wins, it will be his fourth world title in four different weight divisions.

  Fourth-ranked Japanese bantamweight Riku Mauda of Teiken Boxing Gym will meet 11th-ranked WBO super bantamweight Jonas Sultan of the Philippines in an eight-round bout.
