Higashi (3-1) suffered defeat on her professional debut at Pancrase 292. But since then she has put together a three fight winning streak, albeit at the expense of inexperienced opponents.
Cerquiera (2-2) hails from Brazil and went the distance with Sarah Frota, who recently made her UFC debut. She’s lost her last two but will be the toughest opponent Hugashi has faced so far.
Two veteran middleweights go head to head at Pancrase 306 when Ikuhisa Minowa and Eiji Ishikawa face off. Between them the two men have 172 fights.
Also on the Pancrase 306 card two flyweight veterans have been matched together with Ryuichi Miki taking on Manabu Inoue. Other fighters in action include Suguru Hayasaka, Kohei Sugiyama, Adam Antolin and Toshikazu Suzuki.
The event is scheduled for June 30th at Shinkiba Studio Coast in Tokyo.
