For a second day running we get Rookie of the Year east bouts at the Korakuen Hall. The winners from these bouts will face the winners from Thursday's bout in the East Japan finals.
Again we won't look at all the bouts but a few have caught our eye, though it's just 2 this time.
On paper the best match up is at Featherweight where we get two fighters with identical records facing off in a really good encounter. This bout will see 19 year old Ryota Ishida (5-0, 3) take on 21 year old Teppei Kayanuma (5-0, 3). In his last bout Ishida looked fortunate to over-come Daiki Funayama, however Funayama was a southpaw and used that to his advantage, though has looked really promising in his other 4 bouts. Kayanuma had an easier time in his last bout, stopping Kazuhiro Koike in 4 rounds, but this will his toughest bout to date. A really good match up.
Another all unbeaten match up comes at Welterweight where we see southpaws collide in a bout between Masaharu Kaito (3-0) and Toshinobu Mimura (4-0-1, 3). The 26 year old Kaito hasn't really shined but has remained unbeaten so far winning and notched up 12 rounds of competitive experience. Since draw on his debut, back in May 2013, Mimura has looked very good and has taken out his last 3 foes in a combined 4 rounds, he'll be hoping to continue that run here. One guy can certainly in this one, whilst the other is a clear non puncher however they should make for a good bout together.
Naknon Sawan, Thailand
On Channel 7 in Thailand fans will get the chance to see the world ranked Petch Sor Chitpattana (32-0, 21) defend his WBC Youth Silver Bantamweight title against the limited and light hitting Eric Panza (8-4-1, 2). This should be an easy win for Petch, but we have been seeing Filipino's travel with a mind on upset mentality recently and we may well see that again here.
On a second Thai show, this one being aired on Channel 3SD, fans will see world ranked Super Flyweight contender Petchbarngborn Kokietgym (33-7-1, 15) defending his WBO Asia Pacific Super Flyweight title against the always testing Espinos Sabu (12-6-2, 5), of Indonesia. We know that Petchbarngborn will be the favourite but Sabu is capable of the upset here and may well shock his world ranked foe.
