It was announced earlier today that Watanabe's two world champions would each host a meet and greet and autograph session over the next week or saw.
The first of those sessions will feature current WBA Super Flyweight world champion Kohei Kono who successfully became a 2-time world champion earlier this year when he stopped Thailand's Denkaosan Kaovichit back in March.
Kono's session is on May 6th and will be held at a store in the Donki store in Meguro.
Although we're not 100% sure on the complete details of the session we believe that Kono will be charging 1,000 yen (about £6 or $9) to take a picture with him, get an item signed and to shake his hand. The receipt for the meet and greet will then act as a lottery ticket with 3 lucky winners receiving a signed glove from the champion.
The second session will come 5 days later as WBA Super Featherweight champion Takashi Uchiyama hosts his own session, in fact Uchiyama will be doing 2 sessions.
The first of Uchiyama's meet and greets will begin at 1PM local time and finish at 2PM whilst the second session will be from 4:30PM until 5:30PM. Sadly we're not 100% sure where these are, though we believe the second will be in a Donki department store.
As with the Kono session it costs 1,000 yen and will entitle you to get a signed item, a photograph and a handshake as well as a chance to win a signed glove, with again 3 lucky winners getting a glove.
