A couple of days ago we reported that Tadashi Yuba had announced his retirement and that he would be taking part in his retirement ceremony, and a public sparring session, on February 10th at the Korakuen Hall. At the time we were unaware of any details regarding the show however today we were given some more information about the card which will be Dangan 122.
The key bit of information is that the card will feature the comeback bout of former Japanese Light Welterweight champion Shinya Iwabuchi (23-5, 19), who was last seen being stopped in 12 rounds by OPBF champion Keita Obara. The exciting Iwabuchi has come up short in 2 OPBF title challenges though appears to still have views of winning the Oriental title down the line.
The rest of the details for the show haven't been fully announced though we are aware that there will be a 5 round B class Lightweight bout between the young and promising Ryosuke Takami (5-1, 4) who will be fighting against Shintaro Nakamura (5-3-1, 2)
