Former world champion Etsuko Tada (13-2-2, 3) is one of the best female fighters on the planet. Sadly she's also one of the most avoided.
The talented former WBA female Minimumweight champion held a press conference earlier in which she said she was being avoided by every female fighter in Japan. She has said that her team offered every female in Japan the opportunity to be her next opponent though, for various reasons, they all declined the offer to fight Tada on April 5th at the Bodymaker Colloseum.
As a result of no Japanese fighters being willing foes for Tada she's now expecting to face a Mexican opponent on her return to the ring. At the moment however no opponent has been named for Tada's first bout since she came up short in a controversial meeting with Anabel Ortiz in Ortiz's native Mexico.
From what we understand Tada won't be the only Japanese female on this show as Shindo Go (14-3, 9) is also expected to compete on this card, though as with Tada no opponent has yet been named for Go.
