Recently we were informed of an interesting Japanese card set for April 15th with several notable names involved on it.
The main event of the card will see former Japanese title challenger Tatsuya Takahashi (30-8-5, 21) [高橋竜也] take on hard hitting domestic foe Masayasu Nakamura (6-3-1, 6) [中村 誠康]. On paper this is a bit of a mismatch, given Takahashi's experience, but the veteran hasn't looked great in recent bouts, taking a narrow win over Gaku Aikawa and losing last year to Ikuro Sadatsune and Nakamura will know a win here will put him on the map domestically.
Hard hitting Welterweight Yuki Beppu (18-1-1, 18) [別府優樹] will be in the co-feature, looking to bounce back from his 2018 defeat to Yuki Nagano. He will be up against Filipino foe Jason Egera (24-20-2, 11), and will be seeking to bounce back from that defeat here.
Also on this show will be Japanese ranked Minimumweight Desierto Nagaike (11-4-2, 2) [長池拓] and promising Super Bantamweight prospect Tetsuya Watanabe (4-1, 3) [渡部哲也].
