We've been informed that the popular model-come-boxer Tomomi Takano (5-0, 4) will return to the ring on June 24th. From what we understand Tomomi will be facing Kai Johnson (4-5-3, 1) who scored an impressive win last time out by stopping Tamao Ozawa in 2 rounds.
Although the records of the two women are drastically different this will easily be the toughest test of Tomomi's career so far. Although we do think Tomomi has to be favoured this is a genuinely dangerous test for the rangy and unbeaten fighter.
From what we understand Tomomi announced this bout at a recent presentation for sportswear firm Under Armour who are apparently supplying her with future clothing. Under Armour have also provided Ryota Murata with clothing in recent months as well.
Although we've not seen the bout confirmed on one of our usual boxing sources we have no doubt that this bout will be taking place, we can't understand why Tomomi would have announced it if it wasn't all but signed and sealed.
