On December 30th we'll see Takuma Inoue (12-0, 3) [井上 拓真] face off with unbeaten Thai Petch Sor Chitpattana (48-0, 33) [เพชร ซีพีเฟรชมาร์ท] on December 30th.
We've now been informed that the bout will be televised live in Thailand, with the bout being shown on Channel 7 at 5PM local time.
Interestingly this wasn't the only news to come from Thailand about the contest today.
Sources in Thailand are reporting that both the team of Petch and Ohashi are attempting to get the WBC to change the status of the bout, from the WBC "interim" Bantamweight title to the WBC "regular" title.
According to the sources the both teams are looking to get the WBC to change status of the title due to the repeated delays of the match up between Rau'shee Warren (16-2-0-1, 4) and Nordine Oubaali (14-0, 11), which won't take place until January 19th after having been delayed.
At the moment it's unclear whether the teams will manage to convince the WBC to switch the titles, but there is clear pressure on the WBC to act, after having had the title essentially on ice since March, when it was stripped from Luis Nery for failing to make weight.
