Hiroshige Tanaka faces Tokitaka Nakanishi at Pancrase 319
Four more fights were added to the Pancrase 319 card today. Among them is a featherweight fight pitting Hiroshige Tanaka against Tokitaka Nakanishi.
Tanaka (13-7) got his career back on track with a split decision win over Suguru Nii at Pancrase 310 last year. That victory snapped a three fight losing skid for the 38 year old.
Nakanishi (4-2) is 14 years younger than Tanaka. He has won his last three and submitted Shinmare Komori at Pancrase 316 in July.
Also added to the card today was a bantamweight bout between Masahide Hiraoka (6-5) and Sho Sekihara (3-1). Both are promotional veterans and have won three out of their last four fights.
As previously announced Yuki Kondo will face Yutaka Kobayashi in a welterweight bout at Pancrase 319. Bantamweight Takeshi Kasugai has been booked to face Toshinori Tsunemura while lightweights Hiroto Uesako and Koshi Matsumoto go head to head.
The event will take place behind closed doors and with a same day weigh in. Fighters will be allowed to move up a division to compensate, so lightweights will be required to weigh in at 170lbs.
