The loss was a serious set back for Uebayashi but it wasn't the end of the world, nor the end of his boxing career.
Today it was announced that Uebayashi would be returning, for his first fight since the loss, on October 19th in a bout with the limited and light hitting Atsushi Hosogai (7-9). The bout has clearly been organised to give Uebayashi a chance to rebuild his confidence against a relatively poor and safe opponent. It is however a must win for Uebayashi.
This bout has been the third announced for the show. The main event of the card will be a WBO female Bantamweight title fight, between Naoko Fujioka (13-1, 6) and South Korean visitor, Hee Jung Yuh (15-2, 6) whilst another bout will see prospect Hikaru Marugame (5-0, 3) face off against Japanese based Filipino veteran Jonathan Baat (29-6-3, 14).
For those who missed Uebayashi's loss to Escaner, it can be seen below, and if you did see it it's well worth another watch.
Hikaru Margume to put unbeaten record on the line against Jonathan Baat!
