Over the past day or so Teiken Promotions released the promotional poster for Dynamic Glove 529, a show dubbed unofficially as "The return of Toshiyuki Igarashi".
The poster, a shiny looking one with a lot of sparkle, features the aforementioned Igarashi (18-2-1, 11) in fthe the fore front with his old WBC belt, a blt he lost to Akira Yaegashi last year. It also features current OPBF Bantamweight champion Ryosuke Iwasa (17-1, 10) in the back ground.
Igarashi be making his return to action following a shoulder issue that has kept him out of the ring for a year and he will be fighting Filipino youngster Renren Tesorio (13-4-3, 4). The bout looks to be a mismatch considering the level that Igarashi has performed at so far in his career though with his long lay off there was little chance of him being matched hard.
As for Iwasa he will be fighting Indonesian journeyman Rommy Wassar (10-16-7, 5) in a catch weight bout slightly above the Bantamweight limit. As with Igarashi's contest this is a mismatch but it's a stay busy fight for Iwasa who has been inactive since his very hard fought win over Richard Pumicpic. As well as staying busy it's also a fight that allows Iwasa to see if he'd be better fighting at 122lbs as opposed to 118lbs, a weight he is said to be struggling to make.
As well as the two bouts mentioned the card will feature a further 5 bouts on the under-card
