Yesterday's announcement of the WBO Super Flyweight title fight between reigning champion Omar Andres Narvaez (43-2-1, 23) and Japanese wunderkind Naoya Inoue (7-0, 6) has been followed by one from Japanese television channel Fuji TV who have announced they will be showing the card from 6PM local time.
At the moment the card is incomplete and Fuji TV list only the two announced bouts, the world title contest and the interesting Flyweight bout between Takuma Inoue (3-0, 1) and Nestor Daniel Narvaez (20-2-2, 9) however we've been hearing strong rumours that the card is set to have at least 1 other major bout added to it shortly with rumours suggesting it could feature Akira Yaegashi (20-4, 10), Satoshi Hosono (20-6-1, 20) or Ryo Matsumoto (12-0, 10) all three of whom were ringside for the recent contest between Ryuji Hara and Kosei Tanaka.
We're expecting confirmation regarding the rest of the card to be made in the coming week or so though with Fuji starting their telecast that early we're hoping that several bouts will be televised on December 30th.
