    Default Kazuto Ioka vacates with talk of retirement

    Sounds like he's unmotivated after getting married and a widening rift between his father/ promoter.

    Still good fights around if he chooses to continue, I'd love to see him in the mix at 115.

    Disappointed as Higa had targeted Ioka for a unification bout.

    Sounds like Ioka is ending his brief retirement and looking to return in September on the Superfly 3 card at 115.

    Comebacks never end well.

    He hasn't fight since last April but has apparently been back training since March.

    Rumour is Ioka will fight Mcwilliams Arroyo on the Superfly 3 card. That's some comeback fight if true. Arroyo upset Cuadras in his last fight.

    Superfly 3 is a solid card but not as outstanding as they have previously been, I my glad they have invested in the smaller guys tho.

    The best fight on paper is Arroyo vs Ioka.

    3rd super fly installment definitely a bit wanting. Shame Wangek opted for hometown show as Estrada rematch would have been top notch. Ioka has been on the shelf a long time and when the burn for the ring turns it can be hard to rediscover it money aside. Then again Arroyo sat out near two years to come back and pull off 'upset' over Cuadras.


    looks like this will go head to head with Garcia v Porter and David Rodriquez v TBA.

    I really looking forward to the Ioka fight. He was always a quality fighter and had an excellent record and pedigree.

    Apparently he had been training for a while. He's a great addition to the division.

    Arroyo showed he's no joke. I always thought Mcwilliams was better than his brother. He gave a good account of himself against both Gonzalez and Ruenroeng.

    If this card is leading to bigger fights and continued coverage of the smaller guys then I'm happy.

    Totally agree. Think we remember a time when jr fly wasn't even ranked by some boxing rags. Networks basically shunned them until Lopez and Carbajal helped blow them up. Ioka is quality addition and love to see top talent from Japan come Stateside. Just weird like that. Honestly for hbo it's recently some of their better airtime.
