Earlier today Kashimi Promotions announced their next show, set for April 29th at the Sangyo Hall in Kanazawa, Ishikawa. The card isn't a huge one but it does feature a number of notable fighters, and will be headlined by a WBO Asia Pacific title fight featuring a very highly regarded Filipino.
The aforementioned main event will see the unbeaten Genesis Servania (28-0, 11) take on the once beaten Ralph Jhon Lulu (12-1-2, 5) for the WBO Asia Pacific Featherweight title. The bout seems to signal a full time move up in weight from Servania, who has been making his name at Super Bantamweight so far, and could well see the Filipino begin a charge towards a potential world title fight with Oscar Valdez down the line, maybe a better choice than facing Guillermo Rigondeaux.
Whilst the focus in the main event will be Servania Lulu, a former LuzProBA Super Bantamweight champion, will be seeking a second professional title here and will be looking to bounce back from his first career defeat, which came last November to Danny Tampipi.
In the co-feature we'll see the teak tough Hurricane Futa (22-6-1, 13) take on Filipino visitor Ernie Sanchez (16-9-1, 7) who returns to Japan for the first time since his loss in an OPBF title fight against Masayuki Ito. This is a supporting bout, and whilst many fans will over-look it, it does look like it will be a very fun one with both guys having styles that should compliment each other.
