A reliable Japanese source has informed us that 3 bouts set to take place at the Korakuen Hall be streamed, for free, over ustream with 2 separate camera angles set to be available.
The first of the bouts is a low level Rookie Contest between Kohei Kashino (2-0) and Hizuki Sasao (4-1). Kashino has received attention in Japan for being a qualified accountant and he appears to have a notable following.
The second bout will be a really good looking rematch between Hikaru Nishida (12-7-1, 4) and Makoto Fuchigami (21-10, 12). In their first meeting Nishida upset Fuchigami, a former OPBF/JBC Middleweight champion, and will be looking to do the same again here. A loss for Fuchigami will almost certainly be the end of his career whilst a win could well see him getting a third bout with Akio Shibata.
The final bout set to be streamed is essentially a Japanese Super Bantamweight final eliminator between Gakuya Furuhashi (17-5-1, 7) and Yasutaka Ishimoto (25-8, 7). This bout could decide the next challenger for the national title and it a genuinely significant bout for both men, who are looking for a rematch with Yukinori Oguni.
For those wanting to tune in to the action it's to be streamed here, hopefully a large audience will convince the promoter that it's worth doing again in the future.
