The bout will be Suwa's first defense of the title,a title that he won earlier this year when he stopped Ratchasi in 5 rounds, and will see the Thai being given a chance to claim revenge against Suwa.
Suwa might not have the greatest of records but is running up a 6 fight winning streak, with 5 stoppages, and is more than 3 years removed from his last loss. As for Ratchasi he has 2-2 in his last 4, and 3-3 on his last 6, and is without a win of any note having lost to both Suwa and Hikaru Nishida.
On the under-card fans will see Japanese veteran Hirotsugu Yamamoto (19-13-2, 3) [山元 浩嗣], though his opponent has yet to be named. Whilst he's not so well known this will be his first bout since his loss, earlier this year, to former multi-weight world champion Jhonnt Gonzalez.
