The ever-smiling, yet lethal Japanese WBC world champion Ken Shiro (17-0, 10 KO's) still wants to unify belts against dangerous Nicaraguan KO Artist IBF 108 lbs king Felix Alvarado (35-2, 30 KO's), hopefully this year. 🔥🔥

The two men were suppose to collide during an exciting world title triple-header last December in Yohohama, Japan. But Alvarado had to withdraw due to a lung illness. That was a disappointment for boxing fans.

Then, instead of battling the Nicaraguan slugger, Ken Shiro (full name Kenshiro Teraji), locked horns against Filipino former titlist Randy Petalcorin (31-4-1, 23 KO's), whom he stopped in four rounds of action.

Still, the popular 27-year-old "Amazing Boy" wants so bad to collide in the ring against the hot heavy-handed Alvarado, whose head coach is the same man who used to work in the corner of legendary Nicaraguan "Explosive Thin Man" Alexis Arguello (77-8, 62 KO's).

For boxing fans, Ken Shiro vs Felix Alvarado is a natural fight among two thrilling warriors who are among the best 108-pounders in the planet. Other top dogs in the weight class are unbeaten Hiroto Kyoguchi (14-0, 9 KO's) and the also unbeaten Carlos Cañizales (20-0-1, 17 KO's)

Will the Ken Shiro vs Felix Alvarado WBC/IBF Light Flyweight World Title Unification battle ever happen in 2020?

Well lets hope so because boxing fans still would love it. 🔥🔥
