Whilst a lot of focus was put on Okumoto it may well have been school girl boxer Fuka Komura (4-0, 2) [小村 楓香] who stole attention once again as it was officially announced that she would feature on Crash Boxing 12 in a Japanese female title eliminator against Sarasa Ichimura (3-5-1) [一村 更紗].
Although Komura's appearance at the press confernece got plenty of attention it's worth noting the card is peppered with notable names. They include former OPBF Bantamweight champion Yu Kawaguchi (26-8, 13) [川口 裕], Ryota Yada (13-4, 11) [矢田 良太] and the always fun to watch Ryuto Kyoguchi (15-2-1, 11) [京口 竜人], though none of those 3 have had their opponents announced as of yet.
Interestingly Ryuto Kyoguchi's brother, Hiroto Kyoguchi (7-0, 6) [京口 紘人], will headline the card where Okumoto takes on Funai,with Hiroto facing off with IBF Minimumweight champion Jose Argumedo (20-3-1, 12).
