On July 21st a new flyweight King of Pancrase will be crowned. Two of the promotion’s top 125lbers face off for the vacant belt when Shohei Masumizu faces Masatatsu Ueda.

As usual the promotion took to Twitter to break the news:

Masumizu (10-3) has won three in a row and is coming off a decision win against Rilley Dutro at Pancrase 303. He’s been with the promotion since 2014 and holds a decision win over Ueda.

Ueda (16-3-2) has won four in a row. The last man to beat him was Masumizu two years ago and he will be looking to avenge that decision defeat at Pancrase 307.

As previously announced the event will be headlined by a bantamweight title bout between newly crowned champion Rafael Silva and challenger Yuto Hokamura.

Next up for the long running Japanese promotion is Pancrase 305 which is set for Shinkiba Studio Coast on May 25th. It will feature featherweight and welterweight title fights.

After that is Pancrase 306 which is set for the same venue on June 30th. That card will feature Japanese veterans Ryuichi Miki, Manabu Inoue, Ikuhisa Minowa, Eiji Ishikawa and Akihiro Murayama.
