In May 2018, Badler wrested the WBA and IBF lightweight titles from Japan’s Ryoichi Taguchi. The WBA belt was later claimed by Hiroto Kyoguchi (Watanabe), but the South African went on to win and reemerge on the world stage.

Teraji was the longtime WBC champion, but he was defeated by Masamichi Yabuki in September 2021 and lost the world championship belt. Less than six months later, Teraji got his revenge by eliminating Yabuki in the third round.
On November 1, Teraji defeated Hiroto Kyoguchi in the seventh round to claim the WBA world title.
