Over the last 24 hours sources from China have revealed that Def Promotions, the biggest promotional group in Hong Kong, are looking to promote a card in May featuring several major bouts. The details are scarce, though there some details out there suggesting talks have began to try and piece the card together and for Def Promotions to work with Watanabe Promotions and Aoki Promotions.
From what has been leaked it would be early May, with May 6th deemed the most likely date, though could be a day or two earlier. The show would take place in Hong Kong, and 3 fighters mentioned for the card.
Those fighters are Takuya Watanabe (35-8-1, 20) [渡邉卓也], who is rumoured to be fighting for the OPBF Super Featherweight title, Nanako Suzuki (3-1, 1) [鈴木なな子] and Hong Kong's very own Raymond Poon (7-1, 4) [潘啟情].
We need to state these appear to be very, very, early plans from Def, and TBS was also mentioned by the sources as being a key part of the plans, perhaps hinting at their being bigger plans involving a world title fight, though no world champion was mentioned by the sources.
