The popular "Charlie" is set to fight on the card which will also feature Toshiyuki Igarashi and Ryosuke Iwasa and like those two men he will be facing a Filipino fighter.
In Ota's case the Filipino foe will be the unbeaten Stephen Gelawa (6-0-1, 4), a puncher from Baguio City who has stopped his last 4 foes, whilst fighting as high as Middleweight.
Although Gelawa is on a 4 fight stoppage run his competition has been poor and it's fair to describe this as a meteoric step up in class for the soon to be 24 year old. He'll be fighting in just his second 8 round bout and will be facing a man who is a former OPBF and Japanese champion at Light Middleweight. It is fair to say that Ota has lost his last 2 bouts but they have come at a much higher level than Gelawa has ever competed at and it seems likely that that losing run will come to an end here.
