～The first in the boxing world!
Yuki Nasu (Greentzda), who won today's match against former Toyo Pacific Flyweight Champion Wangmee Choke (Thailand), has signed a management contract with Mr. Hiroyuki Ikano (Delight), a sports agent.
It is extremely unusual in the boxing world to have a management contract between an individual fighter and a sports agent. According to the representative of his gym, Totsuka, "This is probably the first contract of its kind in the Japanese boxing world." He said.
Nasu is also ranked 9th in the British BOXREC rankings, the highest Japanese ranking in the super flyweight division, and with today's victory, a world fight is now in his sights.
On the other hand, Mr. Idano is an internationalist with a background as a former trading company employee. He is an internationalist with a background as a former trading company employee.
He is also a direct sports agent for the Venezuelan, Danish and Chinese national teams.
Here are some comments from the people involved.
Since the players are in their prime, we wanted to sign a contract with a professional agent and provide them with a modern environment that matches their individual needs, which is not possible for a gym to do on its own (Mr. Totsuka).
We want to take a new approach by combining our accumulated know-how with the traditions of the boxing world.
We want to do everything we can to create the necessary environment. (Mr. Urano).
