In Chiba this coming Sunday fans get a very low profile show, which isn't really going to get anyone too excited.
The main event is scheduled to go 8 rounds and see Ikemen Atsushi (6-4-2, 2) take on Katsunori Imai (6-11-3, 1). Whilst Atsushi will be the favourite the 29 year old has gone 3-3 in his last 6, and has been stopped in 3 of those defeats. He's yet to score a win of any note and despite debuting in 2015 his career hasn't really developed much at all, though he has gone from 4 rounders to 6 rounders and now 8 round bouts. The 34 year old Imai will be fighting for the 21st time but has no momentum or form coming into this, going 1-6-2 in his last 9 fights. Imai is a step up for Atsushi on paper, but is still a very limited foe.
One under-card bout of note will see the wonderfully named Crazy Mitsu (3-0, 1) take on Tomoyuki Hosaka (3-2, 2). Aged 23 Mitsu made his debut a year ago and has notched up 3 low level wins wins already and will be looking for another here. Notably he is from Yachiyo, where this bout is being held, and could be the recipient of a lot of crowd support. Hosaka hasn't shown the sturdiest of chins but will be hoping to pick up a second straight win following a blow out loss to Ryugo Ushijima last year.
As well as the Japanese card there will be a 16 bout show in Indonesia. Sadly despite having so many bouts on the show, it's really not a show worth getting too excited about, and that's despite the fact the show has 3 title bouts on it.
On paper one of the few noteworthy bouts is a female WBC Asian Boxing Council Bantamweight title bout between unbeaten local Felmi Sumaehe (5-0, 2) and Thai visitor Saowaluk Nareepangsri (8-16, 2). Given this is one of the best bouts on the card it shouldn't be a surprise to say we're not hugely impressed by the quality of this show, which looks rather damn awful. The match ups are that bad that one of the few bouts that looks even mildly competitive is an 8 round bout between Boido Simanjuntak (24-54-2, 10) and Hendy Luis (10-17-2, 5)
