Ryota Murata vs Rob Brant Fight Replay

Watch the Ryota Murata vs Rob Brant fight.

Japanese superstar Ryoto Murata (14-1, 11 KOs) makes the second defence of his WBA Middleweight Title against American Rob Brant (23-1, 16 KOs) in Las Vegas on Saturday 20th October.

It will be his third fight in the world’s fight capital, and potentially the toughest test so far for the London 2012 Olympic gold medallist.

Murata, 32, lost one of the most controversial decisions of recent times when he dropped a split decision to Hassan N’Dam Jikam when they contested the vacant WBA crown in May 2017.

A rematch took place five months later and Murata made no mistake, knocking out his Cameroonian-French foe in seven rounds.

He made a successful first defence in April with an eighth-round TKO of Italian veteran Emnauele Blandamura.

Brant, 28, had a successful amateur career winning national titles, but turned pro on June 2012 and won his first 21 fights.

Brant returned to middleweight following his only defeat and won a comeback fight by first-round knockout over journeyman Colby Courter in March. Now he's ready for a far more meaningful bout and said he will never forget the lesson he learned that night against Braehmer.

He said it will be on his mind as he works hard in every round when he challenges secondary middleweight world titleholder Ryota Murata in the main event of the Top Rank Boxing on ESPN+ card on Saturday (ESPN+, 10:30 p.m. ET for main card, 7 p.m. for preliminaries) at the Park MGM in Las Vegas.

"That (loss to Braehmer) will never go away in my mind," Brant said. "If it does that opens me up to making those same mistakes again. As much as I hate to have taken a loss, I would never go back on that because of what I've learned. That will be on my mind."

Brant (23-1, 16 KOs), 28, who is from Saint Paul, Minnesota, and lives in Dallas, has been training for the past eight weeks in Las Vegas in his first camp with trainer and former light heavyweight world titlist Eddie Mustafa Muhammad.
