Less than a week ago Dangan revealed that they would be showing future events over new subscription service www.boxingraise.com. The website went live a couple of days ago, on July 10, with the promise to live stream two shows before the end of July.
Those shows would be Dangan 163, this Friday's upcoming card featuring Takuya Kogawa (26-4, 13) [粉川 拓也] defending the Japanese Flyweight title against Masafumi Otake (15-14-3, 7) [大嶽 正史], and the upcoming Kadoebi Jewel show on July 25th, featuring an OPBF Welterweight title fight between Suyon Takayama (24-1, 8) [高山 樹延] and Jack Brubaker (10-1-1, 5) and a Japanese Light Welterweight title fight between champion Hiroki Okada (12-0, 10) [岡田 博喜] and Japanese-Brazilian challenger Cristiano Aoqui (11-4-2, 7) [青木クリスチャーノ].
We've also been aware that they would be adding recorded footage of Dangan 164, a rookie based show on July 27th, and Bom-Ba-Ye 8, which is headlined by OPBF Light Middleweight champion Takayuki Hosokawa(28-10-4, 9) [細川 貴之] defending his title against fellow Japanese fighter Koshinmaru Saito (23-8-1, 13) [斉藤 幸伸丸].
Dangan have since announced two more shows added to their subscription service.
The first of those will be the Morioka promoted "Art of Boxing" card headlined by a WBC Bantamweight title fight between Hinata Maruta (2-0, 1) [丸田 陽七太] and unbeaten Filipino Wilbert Berondo (10-0, 4). This will be a recorded show and will be made available on August 1st. The second is on August 7th and will see Ken Shiro (7-0, 4) [拳 四朗] battling against Toshimasa Ouchi (20-8-3, 6) [大内 淳雅] for the OPBF and JBC Light Flyweight title, this show will be live.
As an addition for fans interested in the service it is available around the globe and it will stream all bouts from the cards that the company shows, not just the main event!
