Cagayan de Oro’s Mark John Yap stakes his 10-fight winning streak when he battles unbeaten Japanese prospect Takuma Inoue in a WBC title eliminator later tonight, September 11 at the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan.
The Japan-based Yap (29-12 with 14 KOs) is the current OPBF Bantamweight Champion and is ranked No. 3 by the WBC. Inoue (11-0 with 3 KOs), meanwhile is ranked No. 9.
The winner gets a shot at the vacant WBC Bantamweight title which was vacated by Mexico’s Luis Nery after failing to make the weight in his last defense against Shinsuke Yamanaka in March 2018.
