According to a recent blog entry from former WBC Flyweight world champion Toshiyuki Igarashi (21-2-1, 11) his bout, and that of former OPBF and Japanese Bantamweight champion Ryosuke Iwasa (19-2, 12), on the November 28th WOWOW Touch 2015! card have both been pulled from the card, with both men now expected to have their next bouts confirmed for a later date.
Although both men were announced for the show on the day that it was announced neither had had an opponent named for their bouts. It now seems that instead of that card both will instead appear in December, though again there are no concrete details on their opponents or the date. We are however expecting their bouts to take place at the Korakuen Hall.
Hopefully details on the upcoming bouts of both men will be revealed shortly, though for now we're left in the dark.
Of course whilst both of those two men are off the show we do still have 3 bouts confirmed for the show. Those includes a couple of world title fights, as Yu Kimura (17-2-1, 3) challenges WBC Light Flyweight champion Pedro Guevara (26-1-1, 17), who of course won the title in Japan last year, a brilliant WBC Super Flyweight title fight between all action challenger Koki Eto (17-3-1, 13) and unbeaten champion Carlos Cuadras (33-0-1, 26) and a rematch between Takahiro Ao (27-3-1-1, 12) and Gamaliel Diaz (28-13-3, 17), with Ao looking to avenge a loss to Diaz.
