BoxNationTV to televised WBO Championship Jr. Bantamweight Clash Ioka-Tanaka
After weeks talks and murmurs news broke today that UK specialist boxing channel Boxnation, along with Premier Sports, would be airing the WBO Junior Bantamweight world title bout between defending champion Kazuto Ioka (25-2, 14) [井岡一翔] and unbeaten challenger Kosei Tanaka (15-0, 9) [田中恒成].
The bout, which will be aired live from Tokyo, will have English language commentary provided by the fantastic Corey Erdman.
For US fans there is still no confirmed TV deal, but for British fans this gives them an English language option to go alongside the Japanese option given by TBS.
