Ogawa does light workout in NY for vacant IBF super featherweight title at MSG on Nov. 27

International Boxing Federation’s third-ranked super featherweight Kenichi Ogawa of Teiken Boxing Gym worked out lightly in the gym attached to his hotel and got sweaty after arriving in New York on Nov. 21 local time, according to the gym.

The 33-year-old Ogawa will face second-ranked Azinga Fuzile of South Africa for the vacant IBF super featherweight title on Nov. 27 (Nov. 28 Japan time) at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater,

‘’I’m pumped up now. I’m in excellent shape considering the fact it was my first practice (after the long flight from Japan),’’ the gym quoted Ogawa as saying. Ogawa had observed the appearance of MSG before that.

It will be Ogawa’s first world title fight in about four years because while he beat Tevin Farmer of the U.S. in December 2017 to win the vacant IBF title, it was later declared a no contest since Ogawa tested positive for an illegal substance used to cure his cold and atopic dermatitis.

Ogawa has a record of 25 wins, including 18 knockouts, against a loss and a draw with one no contest. For his part, the 25-year-old Fuzile is a southpaw with a 15-1 win-loss tally with nine KOs. Photo by Teiken Boxing Gym
