On May 6th Japanese fans get a great show, as do Thai fans. Before than however we get a small card on Tuesday with a trio of semi-notable bouts though nothing too exciting.
The first of the 3 notable bouts here is a 6 rounder which will see Tatsunori Fukunaga (5-5, 2) take on a Thai visitor. We've not got the Thai's name though last year we did see a debuting Thai, Patomsak Sithsaithong, defeat Fukunaga who really needs a win against a notable opponent if he's ever going to go anywhere with his career.
A second 6 rounder will see unbeaten teenager Takuya Uehara (4-0, 2) take on veteran Fumio Yoshida (4-10, 1). For Yoshida this will be his first bout in more than a year and he'll be seeking his first in 3 years. Saying that however we do expect to see him ask questions of Uehara who is untested so far in his short career.
The main event will be an 8 rounder between Yoshiya Yokogawa (7-7-1, 6) and Akira Shono (7-7-2, 4). Whilst the bout is well matched it's not exactly a “headline” bout in the typical sense of things. We expect that this will be competitive, and to be fair both men will come to win though it's still a very weak main event.
