Today we finally saw an announcement of when Akaho would return to the ring.
His return will take place on July 13th at the Korakuen Hall, on the next of the "A-Sign Bee" shows.
At the time of writing there has been no opponent announced for Akaho but his bout is pencilled in as an 8 round Super Bantamweight bout which will likely be the chief support bout for the card.
We say the bout will be the chief support contest as the main event has also been announced, with recent world title challenger Akihiro Kondo (30-7-1, 17) [近藤 明広] facing off with Quaye Peter (11-9-3, 6) in an 8 round contest at 140lbs. Although this is expected to be the main event it's fair to say that a lot of the focus will be on akaho and his ring return.
