Although it's still around 7 weeks away we're becoming very excited about Dangan 108 which looks like it will have at least 2 fantastic matches on it.
The first bout to have been confirmed for the card was a Lightweight clash between the monstrously hard hitting Masao Nakamura (18-1, 18), a former OPBF Super Featherweight champion, and the unbeaten Masayukoi Ito (14-0-1, 6). This bout is a fantastic headliner and we'd be shocked if the winner didn't move on to something big later this year. In fact with Nakamura already hinting as a domestic super clash with WBA world champion Takashi Uchiyama, it seems clear that he views this bout as the final step before he gets a world title bout.
Whilst the main event is brilliant we've also been informed that the co-feature is set to be a great one as well. This bout will feature Japan's #10 ranked Super Bantamweight Koji Aoki (16-7-2, 6) battling against the #11 ranked challenger Yusaku Kuga (8-1-1, 5) in what should move the winner towards a national title fight.
The rest of the card is yet to be released but with those two bouts it seems clear that this will be a show worth getting to if you can. For those wanting specifics it will be held on July 30th at the Korakuen Hall.
