The first of those notable bouts saw former 2-time Japanese Bantamweight title challenger Yushi Tanaka (21-2-3, 14) [田中 裕士] battle hard to claim a very hard fought decision win over Filipino visitor Bryan Capangpangan (12-4-1, 9). The 8 rounder was competitive through out, but Tanaka did enough to take the bout 78-75, twice, and 78-74 in a very fun contest.
Following Tanaka's win fans saw former Japanese Featherweight champion Shota Hayashi (30-6-1, 18) [林 翔太] bounce back from his title loss to Kosuke Saka to stop Filipino visitor Markquil Salvana (13-4, 7). The Filipino had to take a determined body attack from Hayashi and was wilting heavily by the end of round 3, before retiring in his corner to give Hayashi the win.
The main event saw talented prospect Kento Hatanaka (4-0, 4) [畑中 建人] continue his perfect start as he stopped an over-matched Thai in the 4th round. The Thai looked tough early on, but was dropped several times before the referee stopped the bout. After the contest Hatanaka stated that he was now lookign to move towards a Japanese titles ranking and an A class license.
