The move will come into effect in September, though no bouts have yet been announced for the country to host as of yet.
The change will allow Japanese ranked fighters to fight for the title on Japanese soil, whilst in the past fighters have been able to fight on the road for the titles, and will be able to defend the titles at homes, something they've not been allowed to do.
Notably it seems like the JBC and the JPBA are aware that fans could see the problem with the mushrooming of regional titles and will seemingly consider the situation going forward, in an attempt to prevent fan confusion and frustration.
The title will become an official stepping stone,like the JBC and OPBF titles, and by winning the title a Japanese fighter will be able to fight for a world title on Japanese soil.
