Back in September we reported that unbeaten Japanese teenager Juiki Tatsuyoshi (2-0, 2) was set to return to the ring on December 19th at the EDION Arena Osaka. Today saw the official announcement of Tatsuyoshi's inclusion on the bout, and also announce that Tatsuyoshi's much touted stablemate Sho Nakazawa (7-0, 4) would also be in action.
Not only was the date of the show confirmed but so to were the opposition. Tatsuyoshi is set to face Koichi Wakita (2-1) in a 4 round bout at a contracted 54.5KG, between the Bantamweight and Super Bantamweight limits. As for Nakazawa his opponent will be his Japanese opponent, though we've not been given his name at the time of writing, we do however know he will be in an 8 round bout. This is expected to be Nakazawa's final bout before a title fight in early 2016.
