Fighter history

Kenshiro Teraji is essentially the fighting pride of Japan. Notably, he has boxing in his blood, as he is the son of former OPBF light heavyweight champion, Hisashi Teraji. Still, the younger Teraji has done well to step out of his father’s shadow, winning his past two fights after suffering the only loss of his career (to Masamichi Yabuki) back in 2021. In front of his home crowd, Kenshiro will be highly motivated to remind fans of his divisional dominance.

Anthony Olascuaga is a younger fighter from the West Coast. Representing the “City of Angels,” Olascuaga has only five professional fights in his career, but he has done well to emerge victorious each time (including a first-round knockout over Marco Sustaita in his last fight)—But for what Olascuaga lacks in experience, he makes up for in speed. With great hand quickness, he still has a tough task ahead battling Kenshiro in front of all of Tokyo.

Fight odds

At DraftKings Sportsbook, Kenshiro is a heavy moneyline favorite at -800, leaving Olascuaga as a 5/1 underdog to win on Saturday.
