The "East Rookie" of the year tournament continues on Tuesday with a stacked card.
Originally scheduled for 14 bouts there have been 12 pulls outs leaving us with a still staggering 12 contests, all scheduled for 4 rounds.
The show begins at Light Flyweight where, we think, Kiyoto Oshiro (3-1, 2) will face the debuting Tatsuto Maekawa (0-0). This bout is followed up by Takuo Watanabe (2-5-3) facing the unbeaten Ryuto Oho (2-0, 2) in a Flyweight.
At Super Flyweight the unbeaten Seiya Fujikita (3-0, 1) battles who we believe is Yuki Nagashima (1-0) who will be hoping to score his second professional victory.
There wil be two fights at Super Bantamweight. The first will see Seishiro Kumakiri (3-1, 1), looking for his 3rd straight win, taking on Tatsuya Mukai (4-1-2, 1) who also comes in to the bout with back-to-back victories. The other Super Bantamweight contest will see Shingo Koike (5-1, 2) in action. We're not certain of Koike's opponent though we think it's going to be Gaku Aikawa (1-0-1).
The show's sole Featherweight contest sees Shingo Kusano (4-2-1, 2) taking on Mikio Kage (3-1-1, 1). Although there is only one bout at 126 there is two bouts at Super Featherweight where Naoya Nishimura (3-4-1, 2) will look for a victory over unbeaten teenager Kazuma Sanpei (5-0, 1) and Ryosuke Suzuki (3-0) will be hoping to maintain his unbeaten run as he fights Rei Ichiyama (3-4, 1), a man looking to bounce back from a narrow defeat last October.
At Lightweight, where we have just the one bout, Reo Komiyama (4-1-2, 4) attempts to net his 3rd victory of the year as he takes on the unbeaten Ryosuke Koizumi (2-0), who although unbeaten has been a little bit fortunate in both of his professional contests.
At Light Welterweight southpaw Masaharu Hanaka (2-0, 1) will look for his third win against an opponent that we're struggling to hunt down.
There will also be bouts at Welterweight and Middleweight. In the Welterweight contest we think Kazumichi Ishizawa (2-2) will face Nobuaki Sakae (1-2-1, 1) whilst in the Middleweight contest Tatsuya Aizu (2-2, 2) will be in action. Sadly we're not sure who Aizu will be facing.
As well the Japanese card we're expecting a show in Thailand that will see Norasing Kokietgym (6-0-1, 4) defending his PABA Super Flyweight title against Indonesian Louis Loemoli (4-9-1, 2). We expect this card will be on Thai Channel 3, though haven't got this confirmed as of yet.
