Thankfully today we saw that change with Iwasa's opponent for the show being named as Filipino novice Glenn Medura (8-1-1, 5), who will battle Iwasa in an 8 rounder at 124lbs.
Iwasa, who has a bout with Yukinori Oguni later in the year, will be using this bout as a warm up ahead of his world title fight and the former OPBF and JBC Bantamweight champion will be strongly favoured here. However Medura is in some good form with 8 straight wins following a 0-1-1 start to his professional career. Despite being in good form the Filipino lacks a notable win and has been fighting between Super Flyweight and Featherweight.
For fans interested the bout will be aired on G+ as part of the under-card for the WBC Bantamweight weorld title bout between champion Shinsuke Yamanaka (26-0-2, 18) [山中慎介] and Mexican challenger Carlos Carlson (22-1, 13).
