Doi (17-8-1) will have a significant advantage in terms of experience. He made his debut in 2010 and has been in with the likes of Masakatsu Ueda, Shuya Kamikubo and Daichi Takenaka while fighting for promotions like Pancrase, Deep, Shooto, Grandslam and VTJ.
Sekihara (3-0) is at the opposite end of his career. After a successful amateur career he turned pro last year and has won three fights out of three for Pancrase, although he has never been in with an opponent of Doi’s calibre.
As previously announced Genpei Hayashi faces Tatsuya Saika on the Pancrase 313 card. The bout will have the interim lightweight title on the line.
