Earlier today Green released the poster for their next show, set for December 15th and whilst it's not a huge show, by any stretch, it's a show worthy of attention, and a lot of it!
The main event will see a new Japanese Heavyweight champion being crowned, only the third in history! The title bout will see veteran Kotatsu Takehara (15-12-3, 8) [竹原真敬] battle against Ryu Ueda (8-1-1, 5) [上田龍]. The bout is to crown a new champion Kyotaro Fujimoto vacated the belt earlier this year.
The bout which seems the likely to steal the show is a Japanese Light Flyweight eliminator, as Japanese Youth champion Rikito Shiba (4-0, 2) [芝力人] takes on the heavy handed Masamichi Yabuki (9-3, 9) [佐藤政道]. The winner of this will be the mandatory for newly crowned champion Yuto Takahashi, who won the title last week, at next year's Champion Carnival.
Despite those two match ups the real talking point is the ring return of former female star Tomomi Takano (11-5, 8) [高野人母美], who has been in the relative boxing wilderness in recent years following a big falling out with her former promoter in Japan. This bout will actually be her second fight this year, but her first in Japan for more than 2 years! Her opponent is yet to be announced, but we're glad to see her returning to a Japanese ring and hopefully she'll manage to make up for lost time, having suffered 3 losses in her last 4 bouts. She will almost certainly be the fighter getting attention in Japan and despite recent inactivity she is still very popular with fans, especially the male ones.
