Back in April we were supposed to see OPBF Super Featherweight champion Masayuki Ito (18-1-1, 8) [伊藤 雅雪] defending his title Filipino opponent Ernie Sanchez (15-7-1, 6). Sadly however that bout was called off due to an injury to Ito in the weeks building up to the fight.
Now Ito appears to have recovered and the bout between himself and Sanchez is back on, with a new date set.
That new date is July 27th, adding to an already busy looking schedule for the month in Japan which also features a pair of world title fights a week earlier.
The bout will headline "Dangan 164" with the show being held at the Korakuen Hall with an under-card that's set to also feature the exciting Katsunori Nagamine (11-1, 7) [長嶺 克則], who will be fighting for the first time since his win over Kenya Yamashita earlier this year.
