This coming weekend we'll see a lot of Japanese boxing attention focused on Osaka, where fans will get a double world title show. There will however also be a notable card held in Kariya, as Japanese Featherweight champion Shota Hayashi (29-5-1, 17) [林 翔太] defends his title against mandatory challenger Kosuke Saka (15-3, 12) [坂晃典].
Sadly unlike the show from Osaka this card won't be widely available to fight fans, however fans in Chubu region will be able to get the main event on a tape delay broadcast courtesy of CBC, who are going to be showing the bout on same day tape delay.
For those interested, and with access to CBC, the bout is set to be aired at 1:55 on Monday morning in a 55 minute time slot, ending at 2:50. There is however a note on the TV guide suggesting that their is a possiblity of a time change for the broadcast, if that happens we will bring you all updates on that ahead of time.
Of course for those more interested in the world title action from Osaka, we suggest you keep an eye out for the TV details in regards to that show, with the options to watch it being much wider than for this particular card.
