That bout will see former Japanese Super Flyweight champion Ryuichi Funai (29-7, 20) [船井 龍一] battle against former world title challenger Warlito Parrenas (26-7-1, 23) for the WBO Asia Pacific Super Flyweight title.
Funai was last seen in the ring back in December, when he stopped Shota Kawaguchi in 2 rounds to retain the Japanese title and record his second defense. He vacated the title at the start of 2018 to focus on getting a world title fight, and it seems that he been over-looked for now, but will view the WBO Asia Pacific title as a chance to shoot up the WBO rankings and keep his name in the mix for later in the year.
Parrenas is best known for his 2015 loss to Naoya Inoue in a WBO Super Flyweight title bout. He would be out of the ring for almost 2 years following that loss but return last December to beat a Thai foe, as he began to work as a trainer at the Morioka gym. Parrenas notched his second win since the loss to Inoue back in April, when he stopped another Thai visitor. The hard hitting Filipino will know that a win here puis him in the mix for a second world title fight, whilst a loss here will likely end his dreams of ever winning a world title.
