A featherweight fight has been added to the Pancrase 319 card. Issei Tamura will face Akira Okada in Tokyo on October 27th.
Okada (13-9-3) was last seen in action at Pancrase 316. He dropped a decision to reigning featherweight King of Pancrase Isao Kobayashi in a non title fight.
Tamura (13-10) is a UFC veteran. He was booked to fight on Pancrase 313 and Pancrase 317 but saw both cards cancelled due to Covid-19.
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.
