Prediction,

I think this is a very interesting match up, and a very good one as well, there are a lot of questions about the timing of this fight, for two different reasons, timing could be a key factor on either side. I think there should be more excitement pre fight, for this match up than there is.

Shinsuke Yamanaka is very underrated and under recognised in my opinion, he is a world champion, he has been a world champion since 2011, he has defended his WBC title 12 times, he has beaten some very good fighters, Vic Darchinyan, Anselmo Moreno (twice), Stephane Jamaoye (twice), Liborio Solis. It is a shame that Yamanaka, as an undefeated world champion, who over a span of 5-6 years, who keeps winning, is not a big name. Yamanaka is 35 now, I think he must be on the decline, so I think at this stage of his career, he will want the high profile fights, his opponent is not well known, which is a shame, but I think this bout has the makings of a great fight, so maybe it will raise his stock.

Luis Nery, at the very least, is a good fighter, 23-0, he can punch, he has beaten decent opposition. Nery is very young, at 22, despite having beaten good opponents, has not competed at anything like the level his opponent in this fight has been competing at, so he may be quite inexperienced, though he's won titles, 23 fights, not a bad number at all for someone who is fighting for their first world title, it is not uncommon for Mexican fighters to have short amateur careers and turn professional, early, and interestingly, Nery has had only 6 professional fights less than the champion he is scheduled to face. For any young, unbeaten fighter, a world title shot is potentially career changing, and just a thoroughly fantastic opportunity, so Luis Nery will surely be more motivated than ever before, and he must be glad this match up happened, he might believe the timing of this fight suits him, it might do, it might be slightly too early, but whether it is or it isn't, I think this fight will help Nery's reputation, and give him an opportunity to prove he belongs at this level, then again, with his opponent being so underrated, he might also get under praised for his performance after this fight.

I think this be a very close fight, but I think Shinsuke Yamanaka will edge it out, defend his title for the 13th time. I think Nery will aim to start strong, pressure Yamanaka, take the early rounds away from the older, more experienced fighter, I think Yamanaka will aim to use Nery's lack of amateur experience, his unfamiliarity at this level, against him, try to out work him, take and early lead, control distance and range. I think Nery will be aggressive, active early, he will be a clear challenge for the champion from the start, he might overwhelm and outland him in half of the first 6 rounds, but I can see Yamanaka moving well, catching Nery on the counter, maybe just stopping him in his tracks at times, frustrating him with his ring generalship. I think Yamanaka will have to work hard to achieve it, but he'll put rounds 7 and 8 in the bank decisively. I think Nery will keep his composure, but box with the right amount of urgency, come on strong, I think at, 35, I think Yamanaka is young enough to be able to stay in fight, so I think round 9 will be very competitive. I think Nery will thrive in rounds 10 and 11 as he drops, dominates Yamanaka. I know Nery has been 10 rounds at least once, and Yamanaka has been 12 many times, so I think they will both be able to find the gas in the tank in the last round. I think the last round will be an all out war, and a somewhat even battle, Nery, the younger, faster recovering man, Yamanaka, more experience doing 12 rounds, Nery, having exerted himself more, Yamanaka having taken more punishment, both guys have a lot of power, so they may hurt each other, Nery, maybe the bigger puncher, as well as being the younger man, but also, so young that he doesn't have all his strength, and maturity, and Yamanaka, he may have the better knowledge of how to make an opponent vulnerable. I think both guys will confidently raise their hands after the fight, both will be 100% sure in their own minds that they have won, but I think Shinsuke Yamanaka will be awarded a split decision victory (114-113, 112-115, 114-113), retaining his title, staying unbeaten.

I think for Shinsuke Yamanaka, this is an important fight for the remainder of his career, because at 35, he won't get any better from here, in fact, he will decline, so if he loses to Luis Nery, he will have to quest his next step, obviously, he is undefeated, and has been world champion for years, so really no matter what happens, he is a great fighter, is depressingly underrated, has already struck gold, achieved what every fully committed boxer tries to achieve, but on a future basis, I think his career is questionable, if he to lose this fight, and it could well happen, it will be tough to come back from, he has a lot to lose here, because when someone who disagrees, says it's his first loss, and he has been a world champion for 6 years, he's 35, not 45, while that's a fair point, if you haven't sealed your legacy after 14 world title fights, 13 of those, wins, when have you? So I think Yamanaka should definitely retire if he loses this fight, if he wins, I think a unification fight should happen, soon, if not a rematch against Nery, maybe 2-3 big fights for the Japanese warrior, but I think win or lose, Yamanaka should hang up the gloves soon. I want to say Yamanaka has a lot to gain here, but he is so underrated already, and Luis Nery is not a big name, so I don't think he will get the credit he deserves even with a victory here, I believe for Yamanaka, his best hope of getting the recognition he deserves, before retirement, is to get a unification opportunity, and if he thinks this way, then surely it is very important he wins this fight.

Luis Nery will have every bit of confidence in winning this fight, and he could well do so, but if he loses, I see it being difficult to bounce back from, short term, but in the long run, losing to an underrated, undefeated, experienced world champion, is rarely a bad thing, in fact, it can often work in a fighter's favour, so I think this fight could be a win/win situation for Nery, he'll learn a lot from this fight. If Nery wins, at has a world title, I think he'll be looked at as 'the weak link' in the division, when this happens, it is frustrating for the fans of the champion, but it is only the people who underestimate him who are proven wrong, and only the fighters who underestimate him who suffer, so I think if Nery wins this belt, and targets other champions, then this underrated division could get even more exciting than it already is. Nery should know that the pressure is in the other guy here, yes, he's younger, yes, Yamanaka has already been world champion and nothing and nobody can ever take that away from him, but Nery has bags of time ahead of him, Yamanaka doesn't, this may be less significant than people think when the two fighters are in the ring, and are thinking about this fight and this fight only, but it is worth considering as a factor in this fight. If Nery wins this, I'm sure he will want to fight the winner of Burnett vs Zhakiyanov, McDonnell vs Solis, these are big fights, there is no rush, but these would be great potential future match ups to be made.

Yamanaka looked good until he didn't. Young Nery is a beast when he turns it up! And there's a new sheriff of the Bantamweight Division!

Sensational performance from Luis Nery! What a statement!
Devastating for Shinsuke Yamanaka! He was so close to making history! Breaking a record, but of course, no shame in beating beaten by the better man on the night.

I think Luis Nery will be a top 10 fighter one day.
