The next few days are busy for Japanese fight fans with a lot of TV action over the next couple of days. Whilst several of the broadcasts are on tape delay one is a live broadcast.
The televised action begins on Friday, at 22:00 local time, and is a tape delay broadcast of the recent Osaka Teiken show. We won't include spoilers, but the broadcast is expected to feature at least 3 bouts. Those bouts are Juiki Tatsuyoshi (3-0, 2) Vs Kazuki Sanpei (3-3, 1), who fought in a 4 rounder, Sho Nakazawa (8-0, 4) facing Teiru Atsumi (9-1, 3), in an 8 round bout, and Tatsuya Ikemizu (13-1, 6) Vs Jonas Sultan (9-3, 5), in another 8 rounder.
That card will be shown on G+ and will run from 22:00 to 24:00
Around 2 hours after the G+ broadcast finishes fans will be able to turn over to Fuji TV to see the recent Phoenix Battle show. The main fight being broadcast here will be the Japanese Featherweight title fight between Satoshi Hosono (30-2-1, 20) and Rikiya Fukuhara (31-8-1, 23). As well as the title fight we also expect to see footage from Koki Inoue's (1-0, 1) bout with Sultan Sithprakaifah (0-0).
The Fuji TV broadcast is set to run from 26:15 to 27:15 (or 2:15am to 3:15am on Saturday morning).
On Saturday attention turns back to G+ who will re-run the Osaka Teiken show from 13:15 to 17:45, we understand that the show will be run back-to-back though it's not completely sure.
Following the Osaka Teiken card we then get the live action, which will run from 17:45 to 22:00.
The live broadcast is set to feature 6 bouts in total, with the main bouts being the Japanese Super Featherweight title bout, between Kenichi Ogawa (17-1, 14) and mandatory challenger Satoru Sugita (11-2-1, 7) and the Japanese Super Bantamweight title fight between Yasutaka Ishimoto (27-8, 7) and Yosuke Fujihara (16-3, 4). These bouts are both part of the Champion Carnival and are both mandatory title fights.
For fans unable to watch the live card it will be replayed on April 9th between 12:30 and 17:45, also on G+.
All times given here are local times for Tokyo, and for international fans the times will need to be adjusted.
