It's now been revealed that Rivas will not be fighting the Japanese fighter, instead Takano will be fighting Thailand's Nongbua Lookpraiaree (9-12-1, 1), though the bout will still be for the OPBF title.
On paper this is a big step down from fighting Rivas, at least given the comparative records of the Filipino and Thai. Hopefully however we do see Tomomi given a good test by the more experienced Thai.
The Thai has faced some notable foes, such as such as Nao Ikeyama, Gretchen Abanial and Samson Tor Buamas though they all came at a significantly lower weight than this bout will be fought at.
