Earlier today it was announced that popular Japanese boxing-model Tomomi Takano (8-1, 5) would be returning to the ring on November 11th to compete in her first world title bout. More interestingly is the fact that the bout is set to come against the most accomplished fighter she has faced so far, by a significant margin.
Tomomi, who won the OPBF Super Bantamweight title in her last contest back on June 10th, is set to drop back down to her more natural Super Flyweight to take on 2-weight world champion Daniela Romina Bermudez (17-3-2, 5), who will be defending her WBO Super Flyweight title.
Bermudez, known as “La Bonita”, has been one of the top females on the very active and popular Argentinian boxing scene. Her career has seen her facing fighters such as Yesica Yolando Bopp, who has beaten her twice, Edith Soledad Matthysse, with who she went 1-1 against, and Linda Laura Lecca.
As for Tomomi this is a huge step up in class from facing the likes of Nongbua Lookpraiaree, who she beat in June, and marks an amazing career turn around following her 5th round TKO loss to Kai Johnson back in June 2014.
At the moment little else is known about the card though rumours have surfaced about former world title challenger Hisashi Amagasa (29-5-2, 19) appearing on this show as he continues to target a second world title fight.
This is set to take place at the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo and is likely to be aired, in some form, on TBS as parts of a Guts Fighting broadcast.
