Over the past few days details have leaked in regards to a small Celes gym card set for July 12th at the Korakuen Hall, a card that has gone under the radar.
The main event of the card will feature former Japanese and OPBF Bantamweight champion Ryosuke Iwasa (21-2, 13) [岩佐 亮佑] fight in a 10 round bout at, or around, the Super Bantamweight limit.
At the moment Iwasa has had no opponent named for the bout though it seems likely that the contest will come against a "name" opponent with Celes trying to sell the bout as a potential warm up contest for a world title bout.
Iwasa isn't the only one pencilled in for the card with 4 other Celes gym fighters also signed up to take part, though no opponents have been named for those fighters.
For fans outside of Japan hoping to watch this show, it is pencilled in to take place on G+ as part of the "Dynamic Glove" series of shows.
