A new week kicks off with a card that promise a lot for fans at the Korakuen Hall.
In the main event of the bout fight fans will see OPBF Super Middleweight champion Shintaro Matsumoto (13-4, 9) battle against once beaten Australian Jayde Mitchell (9-1, 4) in what will be Matsumoto's first defense. The champion won the title earlier this year, when he upset Yuzo Kiyota for the title in one of the biggest shocks of the year on the OPBF scene, but will do well to retain his title against Mitchell, who looks like a very tidy boxer who is improving with every fight.
Although the main event is a title fight we dare saw the chief support bout is the best fight on the card and will see the exciting, and teak tough, Tsuyoshi Tameda (13-2-2, 11) face Reiya Abe (12-2, 6) in a really mouth watering match up. Tameda has long been one of our favourite's on the Japanese domestic scene with his aggressive style and heavy hands, and last time out he proved he was tough as he took a shellacking from Simpiwe Vetyeka. Although not as high profile Abe has also impressed, winning the 2014 Rookie of the year, avenging his second defeat and defeating both Ryo Hino and Hikaru Marugame in his last 4 bouts. This has the potential to be something really special.
