Last July we saw Japanese fighter Teiru Kinoshita (20-1-1, 4) come up short against Zolani Tete in a bout for the IBF Super Flyweight title. Since then Kinoshita has began to rebuild and scored a low level win over the completely out classed Brukluk Kor Narong Service last December.
The next stage in Kinoshita's rebuilding process will come in April when the former Japanese Super Flyweight returns to the ring for the second time following his loss to Tete.
At the moment Kinoshita's opponent has been announced but the details that we have state that Kinoshita will be fighting at the Kobe Center for the Arts in an 8 round bout at Bantamweight. We also know that Kinoshita will be one of a number of fighters in action with others including Senrima stablemates Kazuya Murata (10-4, 4), who will be in an 8 round bout against TBA, and whilst Munehito Kijima (6-6-1), who will be battling against former title challenger Kenichi Horikawa (27-13-1, 4).
We're hoping for more details on this show shortly and, with some luck, Kinoshita will be in an interesting bout rather than just a stay busy contest.
