There hasn't been a lot of fights so far this year but things are definitely about to kick off in the coming months with a host of exciting bouts, interesting shows and days that should be marked down on your calendar.
One of those dates is April 30th as Kadoebi put on "Kamikaze 5" a show that is well worth making a note of now, and if you're in Tokyo in late April is worth getting tickets for.
The show will feature 3 Japanese title bouts along with a number of interesting under-card bouts as Kadoebi showcase a number of their best fighters and the 36th Champion Carnival comes comes to a magnificent ending.
The most notable of those title bouts will see Japanese Heavyweight champion Kyotaro Fujimoto (11-1, 6) defending his belt against big rival Nobuhiro Ishida (27-10-2, 11) in the main event of the card. The bout, the second meeting between the two, sees Ishida continuing his Heavyweight journey whilst Fujimoto is hoping an impressive win will help move him towards a bigger and better fighter internationally.
The chief support bouts are also both Japanese title fights.
One of those support contests will see Japanese Super Bantamweight champion Yukinori Oguni (14-1, 4) defending his belt against the over-looked Gakuya Furuhashi (17-5, 7) whilst the other will see Kota Tolunaga (14-2, 9) battle against Yuya Sugizaki (20-9-1, 6) for the recently vacated Japanese Lightweight title.
Whilst the card looks good on paper we also need to say the poster for the show looks good as well.
The poster was recently released by Kadoebi and shows all 6 main fighters on with the clear impression that this is a show fans won't want to miss. It may seem silly but it seems Kadoebi are making it obvious that this show is going to be a statement for them and their boxers, which include Fujimoto, Oguni and Sugizaki.
