WBC flyweight world champion 21 year-old Daigo Higa wants a unification match with his fellow Japanese world champion Kazuto Ioka who is the reigning WBA Flyweight champion.
Higa of Okinawa Japan who has a perfect record of 13 wins all by the way of knockouts won the WBC Flyweight title in May 2015 after scoring multiple knockdowns after stopping Mexican Juan Hernandez Navarette in sixth round while the another Japanese champ from Osaka Japan Kazuto Ioka (22-1,13knockouts) is a veteran of 15 world title fights. He has (14-1) record in world title fights only losing once by decision against stylish Thai boxer Amnat Ruenroeng in 2014. He is also a three division and 4 time world champion.
Kazuto Ioka's resume is far better than Daigo Higa but boxing fans should not under estimate the skills and power of Higa. The fight will tell who is the better flyweight between the two Japanese world champions. The other titles in Flyweight (112 lbs.) is currently held by Filipino Donnie Nietes (IBF) and Zou Shiming (WBO) of Japan.
