Ex-OPBF super featherweight champ Kimura to challenge French Ziani for Inter-Continental title in Toulouse on May 6

Apr 15, 2022 18:44 pm

Former Oriental and Pacific Boxing Federation super featherweight champion Yoshimitsui Kimura of Shisei Boxing Gym will challenge Samir Ziani of France on May 6 (7 Japan time) in Toulouse, France, for the latter’s International Boxing Federation Inter-Continental Super featherweight title, it was learned on Apr. 15.

While Kimura captured the OPBF title last December by stopping Kosuke Saka of Nakazato Yoshitatsu Boxing Gym, Kimura relinquished the title to challenge Ziani.

The 25-year-old Kimura has a record of 13 wins, including eight knockouts, against two losses and a draw, while the 31-year-old Ziani, ranked fourth by the IBF and seventh by the World Boxing Council, has a 33-3-1 win-loss-draw tally with eight KOs. He is southpaw.
