Tenshin Nasukawa has an opponent at Rizin 16 but it’s not a name that will be familiar to many fans in Asia. The Japanese stand up star is slated to face Ahmed Ferradji in a kickboxing bout.

A Rizin  press conference scheduled for today was cancelled. Instead the promotion announced the bout via Twitter:

The ISKA featherweight title will be on the line when the two kickboxers meet in Kobe on June 2nd. The event will be headlined by a super atomweight title between Ayaka Hamasaki and Jinh Yu Frey.

Another kickboxing bout was also added to the card today. Hiroto Yamaguchi will face off against Taiju Shiratori in a non title match.

In total there are now four kickboxing bouts on the eight fight card. Two of Japan’s top female fighters will also go head to head when Kanna Asakura takes on Miyuu Yamamoto in a catchweight contest.

One fighter who won’t be featuring on the Rizin 16 card is Kyoji Horiguchi who challenges Darrion Caldwell for the bantamweight title in a rematch at Bellator 222.
