Firstly the aim is to make that fight against a "former world ranked fighter". There is no name yet stated though there is a lot of former world ranked Heavyweights out there to choose from, notably Japanese based Ugandan Okello Peter (21-8, 19). We're not saying that Peter has been selected for Ishida but it is a bout that would make sense, be easy to make and, with Peter being completely shot, be an easy win for Ishida. It would also be a win over a former opponent of Japanese champion Kyotaro Fujimoto (9-1, 5).
The rematch between Fujimoto and Ishida would be for the title, only if, both men win their upcoming contests. If either loses their upcoming contest than any allure for the bout vanished, though if Fujimoto loses there is a chance Ishida would challenge Takehara for the title in a bout that could again be made for December 31st.
An interestingly sub plot, if Ishida fights Peter, is that Peter and Takehara are gym mates at Green gym, not to be confused with Green-Tsuda. If Ishida beats Peter and Takehara beats Fujimoto that could certainly be marketed in a "revenge" type of way. Of course it's unlikely but still an interesting sub-plot all the same.
For those who sill haven't seen Ishida Vs Fujimoto I the full fight video is available here.
And for those wondering what Ishida's ever changing body shape looks like, the picture opposite was uploaded on to his personal blog just a few short ago.
