Athough this weeks action kicked off on Monday it's fair to say that we've had to wait until Wednesday for the first real show as Yoko Gushiken and the Shirai-Gushiken gym put on an interesting show.
The card, The Kanmuriwashi Fight vol.47, doesn't have a great under-card but the main event may well be the most highly anticipated female bout in Asia this year.
The show begins with a bout between the win-less pairing of Dai Yokota (0-2) and Tomohisa Ishikawa (0-1). Whilst we often talk about "one man's 0 must go" this is a bit of inverted version of that but still looks like it will be a competitive contest.
The second contest on this show sees Junichi Obara (3-2-1, 1) fighting up against Yuya Kinjo (3-3) in what appears to be a very even match up on paper. We're not sure on the competitive nature of the show's third contest as Taichi Kimura (1-1) fights Noboru Sasaki (2-5, 1), who unfortunately has been stopped in his last 3 contests.
In a very interesting contest Hokuto Kawana (1-0, 1) will be fighting Tetsu Narisawa (1-0) in a fight between unbeaten men.
In the fifth contest of the show the wonderfully named Littletyson Tanaka (3-1, 2) attempts to bounce back from his first defeat. Tanaka will be fighting Takashi Yamaguchi (1-2), a man who has lost his last 2 contests.
The Chief support bouts see both Taiki Eto (11-2, 8) and Shingo Eto (11-2-1, 7) in action. The brothers of current WBA interim Flightweight champion Koki Eto will be facing Thai opponents with us believing that Shingo will be sharing a ring with Thiendaeng Manoprungroj (0-2) in a total mismatch.
Whilst the rest of the card is pretty forgetable on paper the main event here is an amazing match up on paper as the hard hitting Naoko Yamaguchi (22-3-3, 18) takes on the unbeaten Naoko Fujioka (10-0, 6). Although Fuijioka is the unbeaten woman Yamaguchi is the defending WBA Super Flyweight champion and will be the favourite in what looks likely to be an explosive female contest.
