early Life

Hisashi Teraji, a boxer who won the OPBF light heavyweight and Japanese national middleweight titles, is the father of Shiro. Shinji Takehara, the eventual world champion, was the opponent in Hisashi’s lone professional defeat. The year was 2000, and he was 36 years old. Between 2007 and 2014, Shiro amassed a 58-16 amateur record, following in his father’s footsteps. Shiro was involved in a drunk driving incident on November 15, 2020, during which he entered another person’s property and hit a vehicle that was parked there.

Later, he would publicly apologise to the victim and his supporters. As a result, the Japanese Boxing Commission fined him 3 million, suspended him for three months, and mandated that he do between 48 and 200 hours of community service.

Boxing Career

In August 2014, Kenshiro Teraji defeated Heri Amol in a six-round unanimous decision (60-53, 60-53, 59-54) to make his professional debut. In round four, Amol was knocked out by a right hand to the body. Shiro won his first title in October 2015 when he defeated Rolly Sumalpong in a unanimous decision to claim the WBC Youth light flyweight championship (97-91, 96–92, 96–92). Shiro was dropped for the first time in his career during round 1, but he quickly recovered and fared well enough to win.

Kenshiro Teraji defeated Kenichi Horikawa in his subsequent match to win the Japanese national light flyweight title by a unanimous decision (98-93, 98–93, 97–93). Shiro defeated Toshimasa Ouchi in another unanimous decision match in August 2016 to win the OPBF championship (119-108, 119-109, 117-111).

Shiro Vs. López I – Kenshiro Teraji was slated to fight Ganigan López, the current WBC light flyweight champion, in May 2017. It would be Shiro’s 10th professional match and López’s second title defence. Shiro prevailed in the hotly contested match with unanimous decision, with two judges awarding him victories by scores of 115–113 and 114–114, respectively. Going into the eighth round, Shiro was ahead of López on the scorecards, but López was able to rally.

Kenshiro Teraji later admitted that he didn’t know how the judges had scored the contest, which is why he exchanged powerful blows with López in the last round in an effort to finish him out. Shiro expressed dissatisfaction with his performance during the post-fight press conference, claiming he was too scared to fight like he typically does in his first world championship challenge. Fuji TV broadcast Shiro and Lopez’s first fight, which attracted roughly 1.76 million live viewers in the Tokyo area alone and a Kant audience rating of 9.5%.

Shiro Vs. Pedroza – On December 30, 2017, Kenshiro Teraji was slated to face Gilberto Pedroza, the No. 1 ranked WBC light flyweight, in a rematch for the WBC light flyweight championship. Shiro revealed the rationale for accepting this bout—continuing to fight at least three times year to keep up his match fitness—during a pre-fight interview.

The Panamanian fighter was totally outclassed by Shiro en way to a fourth-round technical knockout victory. In the fourth round, Pedroza was knocked down twice by Shiro. After the second knockdown, referee Laurence Cole declared Pedroza unable to continue fighting.

Shiro Vs. López II – On May 25, 2018, Lopez was slated to face off against former champion Ganigan López in a rematch to make his third defence of the WBC light flyweight belt. Kenshiro Teraji prevailed in their first encounter through unanimous decision to win the WBC light flyweight title. The contest between Jamie McDonnell and Naoya Inoue was to be the co-main event of the fight. Shiro knocked out his opponent in the second round with a body shot.

Kenshiro Teraji delivered a right straight to López’s body midway through the second round, and López was unable to counter the ten-count. Shiro said that his lacklustre performance in their first encounter was due to the fact that, in contrast to their second encounter, he had previously never faced a southpaw opponent.

Shiro Vs. Guevara – On October 22, 2017, Kenshiro Teraji was slated to face Pedro Guevara, the former WBC light flyweight champion, in his first title defence. Guevara has previously engaged in two fights in Japan, first defeating Akira Yaegashi to win the WBC title at the Tokyo Metropolitan Gymnasium, and then dropping it to Yu Kimura in Sendai via a contentious split decision. The fight, a mandatory title contest, was slated to take place on the undercard of Ryota Murata’s rematch with Hassan N’Dam N’Jikam, the WBA regular titleholder.

After the first eight rounds, the bout was scored as a draw because Guevara began out fast but slowed down as a result of body shots (78-74 Guevara, 77-75 Shiro and 76-76). In the second half of the contest, Kenshiro Teraji made a comeback and took another close majority decision. Shiro won the bout by scores of 115–113 and 116–112 from the first two judges, and the fight was declared a draw by the third, 114–114. Shiro demanded a rematch with Ganigan Lopez at the post-fight press conference.

Shiro Vs. Melindo – On October 7, 2018, Milan Melindo, a former IBF and IBO light flyweight champion, was to face Shiro in their fourth meeting for the WBC light flyweight championship. He competed once more on the undercard of Juan Carlos Payano vs. Naoya Inoue.

Kenshiro Teraji was the 4/9 favourite going into the fight. Shiro continued to jab Melindo frequently during the bout, which caused a gash over his right eye to develop. Referee Laurence Cole summoned the ringside doctor toward the end of the seventh round to examine the wound. Melindo was unable to continue fighting since his vision was impaired, thus the doctor made the decision to end the fight.

Shiro Vs. Juárez – Kenshiro Teraji was slated to face former WBC light flyweight title challenger Saul Juárez in his fifth defence of the WBC light flyweight championship. Juárez had only one victory in his previous six fights, making Shiro a 1/12 betting favourite.

Shiro had a solid opening and maintained his advantage throughout the entire battle. Two of the three judges gave him victories in eleven of the twelve rounds that were in contention, while the third judge gave Shiro victories in all twelve rounds.

Shiro Vs. Taconing – On July 12, 2019, Shiro was slated to face Jonathan Taconing, the current World Boxing Council International Light Flyweight champion, in his sixth defence of the WBC light flyweight championship. The bout was slated to take place before the middleweight contest between Ryota Murata and Rob Brant. Taconing’s opponent Shiro started out as the -3333 favourite. By knockout in the fourth round, Shiro prevailed.

Early in the fourth round, Shiro countered Taconing’s pressure by dodging and landing a counter-right straight on his adversary. Referee Frank Garza deemed Taconing incapable to continue fighting, despite the fact that Taconing managed to stand up in time to beat the count. Shiro declared his intention to beat Yoko Gushiken’s illustrious mark of 13 title defences.

Shiro Vs. Petalcorin – On December 23, 2019, Shiro was slated to compete in a title-unifying match against Felix Alvarado, the current IBF light flyweight champion. The contest was slated to be one of three title fights in Japan that also included Ryota Murata defending his WBA title against Steven Butler and Akira Yaegashi taking on Moruti Mthalane. Alvarado pulled out of the fight on November 19, 2020, because he was unable to practise because of a bronchial issue. Alvarado’s replacement, Randy Petalcorin, was declared on November 22, 2020.

Petalcorin had previously fought Felix Alvarado for the IBF light flyweight title, making this his second title match. Petalcorin established his jab early in the fight and had a good opening, which helped him take the first two rounds. In the third round, Shiro started hitting Petalcorin in the body, resulting in three knockdowns. All three of those knockdowns were overcome by Petalcorin, but the fourth knockdown, which occurred a minute into the fourth round, eluded him.

Shiro Vs. Hisada – On December 18, 2020, Shiro was supposed to defend his WBC title for the eighth time against Tetsuya Hisada, the incumbent challenger. Shiro, however, was involved in a drunk driving accident on November 15, 2020, during which he entered someone else’s property and struck a car that was parked there. The Japanese Boxing Commission has punished him for this incident by suspending him for three months, fining him 3 million, and requiring him to complete 48 to 200 worth of community service.

So, Hisada’s championship defence against him for the eighth time was moved up to April 24, 2021. With a convincing decision win over Hisada, Shiro increased the length of his championship defence streak to eight. In the second round, Hisada was knocked to the ground and appeared unable to get back up for the remainder of the battle. Despite not being able to submit his opponent, Shiro prevailed by a large margin, with scores of 118-109, 118-109, and 119-108.

Shiro Vs. Kyoguchi – On November 1, 2022, Shiro took on Hiroto Kyoguchi, the WBA (Super) and The Ring light-flyweight champion, in what was just the second championship unification contest between two Japanese champions. Since Giovani Segura relinquished his championship, the fight’s winner was anticipated to become the first acknowledged lineal champion in over ten years.

Shiro Vs. Yabuki – On September 10, 2021, in his hometown of Kyoto, Shiro was slated to defend his eighth WBC championship against Masamichi Yabuki, the current light flyweight champion of Japan. When the match was scheduled, Yabuki was the top-ranked WBC contender at light flyweight. Shiro and his coach both tested positive for COVID-19, which caused the bout to be postponed on August 26.

The new date for the bout is September 22, 2021. Shiro was defeated via technical knockout in the tenth round. Shiro was struggling to find his rhythm and seemed to be losing on the judges’ scorecards after an even start to the bout. The tenth round saw the battle pick up speed as Yabuki won the majority of the exchanges and unloaded on Shiro near the finish of the round, forcing the referee to call time on the contest.

On November 15, 2021, two months after Shiro had lost his title, representatives of both competitors attended a press conference to confirm plans for a rematch. On January 24, 2022, the WBC championship rematch was formally announced. On March 19, 2022, it occurred at the City Gym in Kyoto, Japan. Shiro knocked Yabuki out of the fight in the third round with a right straight.
