    Boxing is not hugely popular in Japan compared to the West, but it is still well known and Japan regularly produces boxing world champions. Other combat sports such as K1, Pride, Pro Wrestling are more popular and widely covered on Japanese TV.

    Boxing is not popular in Japan as there are few star boxers.

    Kameda brothers are some of the best boxers. But public don't like them because of their bad behavior.

    Boxing isn't really that popular here. Besides the Kameda Brothers, no one else is really known. Most Japan or people who live in japan know the Kameda brother, but do not like really like them cuz they act like they are the coolest and the best.
