Hiromitsu Miura (born September 22, 1981) is a Japanese Boxer and former mixed martial artist who competed in the welterweight division in MMA and now competes in the light heavyweight division in boxing.

Career[edit]

Miura earned a WEC title fight against WEC Welterweight Champion Carlos Condit at WEC 35 on August 3, 2008. As the Japan boxing commission established four weight divisions in September 2009, Miura turned to boxing.[2] After falling in love with his boxing training, Miura has embarked on a professional boxing career and has put MMA on hold for now.[3]

Miura made his professional boxing debut at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas, on April 10, 2010. Then, fighting in Los Angeles, Tokyo and Las Vegas, he beat undefeated Todd Manuel at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on March 25, 2011.[4] Miura successively won over the previously undefeated fellow boxer Shintarō Matsumoto in an eight round bout at the 170 pound (77 kg) limit at the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo on August 6 of the same year.[5] In that month, he was ranked No. 1 in the super middleweight division in Japan.[6] No one but he has been ranked in the newly established four weight divisions yet.

On October 1, 2011, Miura defeated Hector Hernandez via a unanimous decision in a six round super middleweight[7] bout at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.[8]
