Top junior flyweight Hiroto Kyoguchi (15-0, 10 KOs) will defend his WBA “super” and Ring Magazine titles in a unification bout against WBA “regular” champions Estaban Bermudez (14-3, 10 KOs) on Friday, June 10. The card will take place at the Domo Alcade, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. It will be streamed live on DAZN. The fight card starts at 6 p.m. with the main event scheduled to kick off around 10 p.m. ET.
Kyoguchi, from Osaka, Japan, is ranked as the No. 1 light flyweight according to ESPN and Ring Magazine. The 28-year-old won his first major title in his eighth fight when bested Jose Argumedo in a 12-round unanimous decision to win the IBF mini-flyweight title on July 23, 2017. He added the WBA Super and Ring Magazine titles to his collection with a TKO win over Hekkie Budler on December 31, 2018.
Bermudez has had an up and down career, never winning more than six fights in a row. He hit some roadblocks in the middle of his career, losing three of six at one point. However, Bermudez found himself getting a mandatory title shot against then-WBA champion Carlos Canizales. Despite being a significant underdog, Bermudez shocked Canizales and knocked him out in the sixth round to win the title and earn a shot at Kyoguchi.
Kyoguchi is a comfortable -500 betting favorite on DraftKings Sportsbook. Bermudez is betting at +370.
