On May 1st we get the chance to see a brilliant Japanese Middleweight title bout as Hikaru Nishida (15-8-1, 7) [西田 光] defends his "regular" title against "interim" champion Tomohiro Ebisu (17-4, 17) [胡 朋宏], in what has the potential to be a very exciting and thrilling back and forth war between a pressure fighter a huge puncher. The bout will see Ebisu hunting a win to become a 2-time national champion whilst Nishida will be looking to return from what was a pretty bad injury suffered out of the ring last year.
Today, ahead of the bout, A-Sign boxing put up a hype video for the bout whilst confirming that they would be hosting the card, as a Video on Demand, on their website.
For fans interested in the card it will cost ¥500, with 5 bouts apparently being included, and although it's not the biggest card the main event has enough appeal to be worth a purchase, especially given that the price is about £3.50 of about $4.50.
For those interested in the hype video that can be seen below, though with both men speaking through the video it may not be the most interesting for those unable to speak Japanese. Saying that however the bout it's self should be something very special and of course in the ring we all speak the same language!
