The most interesting of those bouts will see the once beaten Katsunori Nagamine (13-1, 9) [長嶺 克則 battle against the heavy handed Tetsuya Tomioka (5-1, 5) [富岡 哲也]. Coming in to this Nagamine is the #1 ranked JBC Flyweight and will be looking to get a title fight before the year is over but Tomioka is no joke and will make the bout a dangerous one for the well liked Nagamine, who isn't against having a war when he needs to as seen in his 2016 bout with Kenya Yamashita.
In an equally good looking bout we'll see the light hitting Joe Tanooka (13-3-4, 1) [田之岡条] battle with veteran Hajime Nagai (14-8-2, 4) [長井 一]. For Tanooka the bout serves as a "stay busy" of sorts before his August 23rd bout in the Japanese Youth tournament final, but it's certainly a tough bout with Nagai being no push over and having a Japanese ranking coming in to this bout.
