We all know that Tomomi Takano (5-1, 4) has been able to steal headlines at weigh ins but this time around she's managed to generate headlines despite just being in the gym. That's been due to her public work out which was done in her bikini due to "the summer heat".
The pictures of Tomomi working out in her bikini has managed to make the sports headlines in several parts of the Japanese sports press though has actually over-shadowed what the work out was for, her newly announced come back to the ring.
The announcement, although not totally clear, was that Tomomi would be making her ring return in mid-October as she attempts to bounce back from her recent loss to Kai Johnson. It appears that the basis of the work out was to work on her stamina, which really failed her last time out.
There hasn't yet been a specific date or opponent announced for Tomomi though it would seem likely that the opponent would be an easy one so that Tomomi could pick up a relatively straight forward win.
One possible opponent could be Riyako Goshi (1-2) and that would be interesting prior to the fight, though in the ring that would be a mismatch, just what Tomomi would need to rebuild her confidence and secure a lot of publicity even if it would be a bit of a joke bout.
