World Boxing Council light flyweight champion, Kenshiro Teraji (17-0, 10 knockouts), says he’ll defend his crown for the eighth time, in April or perhaps May.
“We will seek to defend the WBC title in Kyoto, the region where I was born and raised. This would be very important for me, as it would be a way to return home. While there is nothing concrete yet , hopefully the talks will begin in the coming weeks, especially if we intend to fight in April or May.”
If he successfully defends his crown for the eighth time, Kenshiro would take it one step closer to the Japanese male record of 13 successive defenses of Yoko Gushiken.
