We've been informed by the great Naoko Fujioka (11-0, 6) that she will return to the ring on July 7th.
The WBA female Super Flyweight champion, and one of the very elite pound-for-pound female fighters on the planet, was kind enough to tell us when her next bout is scheduled but she did add that no opponent is yet set.
Fujioka was last seen in the ring when she won the Super Flyweight title by defeating Naoko Yamaguchi in a very impressive performance. That bout saw her making her Super Flyweight debut and looking sensational despite the huge move up in weight from Minimumweight. We'd like to think that she'll be defending her belt against a suitable challenger in her next fight.
We know a few fans were asking about her return to the ring so we are so glad to bring you this exclusive and we really do want to say thank you to the superbly talented fighter herself for answer our question.
