The main event of the card will see former world title challengers facing off with youngster Riku Kano (11-2-1, 6) [加納 陸] battling Filipino foe Jerry Tomogdan (22-8-4, 10) in a bout for the WBO Asia Pacific Minimumweight title, with the two essentially fighting for a second world title shot.
The baby faced Kano will be fighting for the second time since suffering a loss in a WBO world title bout against Katsunari Takayama last August. Although this is his second bout his first one was against a very limited foe and this will be his first real bout since that loss.
For Tomogdan his results have been very up and down recently, going 4-3-2 (1) in his last 9 bouts. Those results have included a stoppage loss to Wanheng Menayothin back in 2015, and a decision loss to Pedro Guevara and two draws against Crison Omayao.
Also announced for the card are Futa Akizuki (8-0, 7) [秋月 楓大], who hasn't had his opponent for the show announced, and Rikito Hattori (7-1, 2) [服部 力斗], who will take on Takayuki Teraji (7-12-1, 4) [寺次 孝有希].
