Stake, the world’s fastest-growing cryptocurrency betting and gaming operator, is excited to announce its sponsorship of the long-awaited boxing debut of kickboxing sensation and world champion Tenshin Nasukawa on Saturday, April 8th.

The Japanese sensation retired with a perfect 40-0 kickboxing record in 2022 to focus on his boxing career, having gone toe-to-toe with the greatest of all time, Floyd Mayweather, in 2018. Nasukawa will take on No.4 ranked Japanese bantamweight Yuki Yonaha.

The event takes place at the 15,000-capacity Ariake Arena in Tokyo, which was a venue for both the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics and has hosted concerts for both Billie Eilish and Charlie XCX.

The contest marks Stake’s fourth high profile boxing sponsorship in Japan in the past year. The brand has previously been ringside for the World Middleweight unification bout between Gennady Golovkin and Ryōta Murata in April 2022, the highly-anticipated rematch between Naoya Inoue and Nonito Donaire in June and the Light Flyweight title match when Kenshiro Teraji took on Hiroto Kyoguchi in November.

As the official betting partner of the event, Stake branding will feature heavily on Tenshin’s gloves, across the stadium inventory and also in the ring – where there is a plethora of top-quality action throughout the night.

Other fights on the Prime Video Presents Live Boxing card include Japanese sensation Kenshiro Teraji vs. Anthony Olascuaga for the Unified WBC, WBA, and WBO World Light Flyweight Championship and former two-weight world champion Kiko Martinez returning to face Reiya Abe, and a Welterweight bout between Keita Obara and Jin Sasaki. The main card is rounded off with Takuma Inoue vs. Liborio Solis for the WBA World Bantamweight Championship, and will all be live streamed on Amazon Prime’s fourth installment of their Live Boxing series.

This latest partnership complements Stake’s extensive global sports sponsorship portfolio including deals with Formula One’s Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake, English Premier League club Everton, along with international multi-platinum artist Drake and many more.

Akhil Sarin, Director of Acquisition for Stake, said: “We’re delighted to continue to support the biggest events in boxing across the globe and are very excited to become the official betting partner for Tenshin Nasukawa’s official debut.

“The southpaw is one of the biggest stars in Japan and everyone at is excited to watch his progress in the world of boxing as he builds towards future world championship opportunities.”
