Earlier this week we reported that the JBC had ordered a Japanese Middleweight "interim" title fight between Makoto Fuchigami (23-11, 13) [淵上 誠] and Tomohiro Ebisu (16-4, 16) [胡 朋宏], due to the recent injury suffered by Hikaru Nishida (15-8-1, 7) [西田 光].
Today we were informed that that interim title bout will take place on Christmas Eve, December 24th, and will take place at the Korkuen Hall, with those details being confirmed by Fuchigami's promoter and Nakaya Hachioji.
Sadly details regarding who, if anyone, is showing the bout haven't been revealed but it's an interesting way to celebrate Christmas eve if you're a fight fan in Japan.
