Worryingly for Ikeyama she hasn't been matched easily and instead of a gimme she will be fighting former world title challenger Masae Akitaya (9-4-2, 3).
The fight will be a second bout between the two women who first fought back in May 2010 when Ikeyama took a very close decision over Akitaya. Since then Ikeyama has won 3 of 4 bouts whilst Akitaya won 4, drawn 2 and lost 2.
Ikeyama will be hoping for history to repeat it's self here whilst Akitaya will be hoping for revenge for her loss in their first meeting. With those things in mind we are expecting a ver good contest between two fighters looking to prove a point.
From what we understand this bout will take place at the Azalea Taisho in Osaka, a venue that may favour Akitaya who is from Osaka.
