The news regarding Ioka then went very quiet with almost no news of the 3 weight champion. That was until last week, when Union Boxing Promotion revealed, on their Russian language site, that Dalakian would be fighting Ioka in Osaka on New Year's Eve.
The full details of the show are unknown, though the bout is expected to be aired on TBS, as part of Kyoguken, and will likely be one of a number of title bouts on the card. Rumours from Japan suggest that Ryosuke Iwasa (24-2, 16) [岩佐 亮佑] will defend the IBF Super Bantamweight title on the same show, and that there may be one other world title bout on the card.
