Earlier this week we were informed that Ryosuke Iwasa (20-2, 12) would be returning to the ring on February 6th at the Korakuen Hall on a Teiken promoted show.
The former JBC and OPBF Bantamweight champion hasn't had his opponent named as of yet though it's thought that he will be seeking a test after last November's 5th round technical decision over the limited but tough Marlon Arcilla.
What is known is that Iwasa will be the headline bout at the "546th Dynamic Glove" and that the bout will be scheduled for 10 rounds. Hopefully more details will be revealed in the coming days, including the weight for the bout and the opponent, along with the under-card for the show, which has had no details released as of yet.
The bout will be Iwasa's first of 2016 and will be hios second since last year's disappointing defeat to Lee Haskins in an IBF interim Bantamweight world title bout.
