Earlier this month Japanese promoter Kurume Kushima announced their latest card, which is set for October 18th at the Prefectural Gymnasium in Kurume, Fukuoka.
The card hasn't been fully set but the co-main events are both organised and they feature two talented an unbeaten Japanese fighters who are both rising through the ranks towards title fights.
The more exciting of those fighters is Welterweight puncher Yuki Beppu (9-0, 9).
Beppu is a Japanese ranked 24 year old who won the Rookie of the Year last year whilst racing to 8-0 (8). Whilst not the most skilled fighter he is seen an exciting and promising fighter at 147lbs with genuinely natural power. He'll be hoping to use that power when he's in the ring to extend that stoppage run as he battles Indonesian visitor Yasmet Star (3-3, 3).
The other bout will see Takumi Sakae (12-0, 8), a world ranked Minimumweight who is racing through the ranks, continue his career.
Sakae appears to be in a much better bout that Beppu and has been matched with countryman Munehito Kijima (6-7-1). This should be a straight forward win for the talented Sakae, though we are still waiting to see him face a real test. At 21 years old Sakae won't be rushed but we really can't wait to see him face a genuine step up in class.
