Jan 13, 2024 21:51 pm

  World Boxing Council and World Boxing Association light flyweight champion Kenshiro Teraji of B.M.B. Boxing Gym exhibited a fine form in his public workout at Tokyo’s Misako Boxing Gym in preparation for his title defense against top-ranked WBA light flyweight Carlos Canizales of Venezuela on Jan. 23 at EDION Arena Osaka.

  The 32-year-old Teraji, who will put his WBC title on the line for the fourth time and the WBA crown for the third time in the upcoming fight dubbed ‘’Prime Video Presents Live Boxing 6,’’ said, ‘’I am determined to soundly clear the fight so that I can enhance my reputation as a boxer.’’

  ‘’I will come out strong early from the fight so that I can break off his heart. I think I can break his heart in the eighth or ninth rounds just like in my recent fights,’’ Teraji predicted, adding, ‘’I want to fight with (International Boxing Federation and World Boxing Organization flyweight champion) Jesse Rodriguez (of the United States) in the future.’’

Teraji has done more than 150 rounds of sparring with such boxers as top-ranked WBA flyweight Seigo ‘’Yuri’’ Akui of Kurashiki Moriyasu Boxing Gym, who will also compete in the same event, up-and-coming Yuga Inoue of Shinsei Boxing Gym, 2021 world amateur champion Tomoya Tsuboi of Japan Self-Defense Forces, etc.

Teraji has so far continued his knockout victories for four times in a row and said, ‘’I don’t need to stick to format if I can mold my own form,’’ citing his chief trainer Kenta Kato’s expression.

   Teraji purchased body composition Analyzer called InBody470 which can ensure visible changes and alterations in body composition like body-fat percentage and muscle mass last fall. The device has been working in favor of the weight control, according to Teraji.

   Teraji has a record of 22 wins, including 14 KOs, against a loss. For his part, the 30-year-old Canizales, a former WBA light flyweight champion, has a 26-1-1 win-loss-draw tally with 19 KOs.
