Kana Watanabe has been added to Monday’s Deep-Jewels 26 card. The undefeated Japanese flyweight has been matched with a Korean newcomer called Hee Eun Kang.
Watanabe (7-0-1) is coming off a decision win over Justyna Zofia Haba at Rizin 15. She returns to Deep-Jewels to take on the Korean debutant.
Eun Kang appears to fight out of the same camp as former ONE Championship bantamweight contender Dae Hwan Kim and his older brother. If that’s the case she will have been training alongside former UFC flyweight Chan Mi Jeon.
The card will also feature Jung Eun Park (5-6-1). She came up short against Seo Hee Ham in an atomweight title shot at Road FC 51 and has been matched with Emi Sato (4-3) here.
As previously announced Tomo Maesawa will defend her atomweight title against Emi Tomimatsu in the Deep-Jewels 26 main event. The card also features Reina Miura and Suwanan Boonsorn.
The event is set for the Korakuan Hall. It will be followed by Deep 92 in the same venue on Tuesday.
