In the main event we see exciting Middleweight Hikaru Nishida (13-7-1, 5) take on Thai visitor Ratchasi Sithsaithong (4-1, 3). Although his record doesn't suggest it Nishida is a genuinely good fighter who has really turned his career around after a 4-5 (1) start and is now probably the #3 Middleweight in Japan, behind Ryota Murata and Akio Shibata. Tough, strong, defensively sound and aggressively exciting Nishida really is one to watch and we suspect he'll show that here against the Thai visitor.
Another notable name in action is Akihiko Katagiri (16-8-2, 7) who fights in an intriguing match up against Corrales Kawashimo (7-5-1, 2). Although neither of these two are ranked it shouldn't take away from what should be a very good 8 round contest between two fighters looking to prove themselves, and possibly claim a ranking down the line.
A third bout scheduled for 8 rounds will be a female bout between the world ranked Kimika Miyoshi (10-8-1, 5) and the always gutsy Kai Johnson (5-8-3, 2). On paper it's hard to back against Miyoshi who is a former OPBF champion and world title challenger, however Johnson may be driven by revenge, following a loss to Miyoshi just over 4 years ago. It may not be the headline bout but this really could be a very competitive match up between two women each looking to prove a point.
