The highly touted Naoto Uebayashi (5-0-1, 3) is set to return to the ring for his second fight of the year on August 13th.
The unbeaten 27 year will be fighting in a 10 rounder at the Green Arena in Hiroshima in the headline bout of a low profile show. Unfortunately no opponent has yet been named for the bout but with Uebayashi's skill set we're hoping for a very solid rival, certainly someone a bit tougher than Indonesia's Anis Ceunfin who was stopped in 5 by Uebayashi earlier this year.
The rest of the card has yet to be confirmed but with almost 2 weeks to go we're hoping to see some more notable fighters added to it. At the moment however the only other fighter we know will be on the card is Ryuji Ikeda (6-2-1, 2) who will feature in a 6 rounder.
