Back in October we reported that Tomomi Takano (11-5, 8) [高野人母美] would be fighting in a Japanese ring on December 15th, her first bout in Japan in more than 2 years.
Today we were sent the full details of the bout thanks to Makoto Okaniwa., who is the a manager and matchmaker at Midori promotions.
Mr Okinawa informed us that Takano's opponent for her return to Japan will see her take on Sachiko Kondo (2-4-2) [近藤佐知子], who is ranked 4 in the JBC's female Flyweight rankings.
The 31 year old Kondo, who is a school teacher, is 1-1-1 in her last 3, and has been pretty active in 2019, with this being her 4th bout of the year.
Takano on the other hand is 32 years old and has one 1-3 in her last 4, with only a single bout in the last 12 months, and that was a 4 rounder in Mexico.
This bout, which will take place in Kariya City, is scheduled to be a 6 rounder contest.
