Late last week Nobuhiro Ishida (26-10-2, 10) posted a blog comment regarding an "announcement of an announcement". Whilst we generally find those sorts of things hugely irritating and frustrating Ishida released enough details to genuinely interest us.
Ishida's announcement was that he would be making a full formal announcement about his next bout, an announcement that will come tomorrow.
What Ishida leaked about the bout was that it would place at Heavyweight, in Osaka and at the end of the year.
We suspect, though need to wait until to tomorrow to confirm, that this announcement will be the first of the ones for the much rumoured Osaka New Years Eve show. Whilst this could be a 1-man announcement by Ishida who could be announcing his opponent, we suspect it could actually be more.
If it is more than just Ishida announcing his opponent then the odds are it will be from a promoter announcing an end of year blow out show. With it being Osaka the odds are it could an Ioka show and we may finally hear about about who Kazuto Ioka (15-1, 9) will be fighting against.
Fingers crossed that this will be a big announcement from Ishida!
