On Monday Japanese promotional outfit Green Tsuda announce a show set for August 7th at the EDION Arena Osaka, a card that gained quite a lot of attention for a mouth watering main event and a very notable support bout.
That really good looking main event was announced as being a bout between touted prospect Kazuki Tanaka (5-0, 4) [田中 一樹], who is currently ranked inside the top 10 by the OPBF, and Japanese ranked Hideo Sakamoto (16-2-3, 5) [坂本 英生]. For Tanaka the bout is a huge step up in class, but shows the confidence he has in himself, and his team has in him whilst Sakamoto will be looking to get back on the winning way after a stoppage loss to current Japanese champion Kentaro Masuda.
As for the supporting bout, it was announced that would be the debut of school girl boxer Fuko Komura [小村楓香], who turned heads back in March when she impressed everyone during her pro-test bout. Although she impressed she isn't being matched hard here, with her debut set to take place against the limited Kaori Nagai (0-1) [長井 香織], in what is a 4 rounder. Although the bout looks an easy one on paper, it does need to be said that this bout will be the chief supporting contest for the card, dubbed "Crash Boxing Vol 9".
