Current WBO World Super Flyweight champion Nakatani (26-0, 19 KOs) will go up in weight to challenge the current WBC world bantamweight champion Alexandro Santiago (28-3-5, 14 KOs).

Santiago is a tough operator – who boasts an impressive win over Nonito Donaire last time out. He has good hand speed and picks his punches well, but he has a big task ahead of him against Nakatani.

Takuma Inoue vs. Jerwin Ancajas

Takuma Inoue (18-1, 4 KOs) will look to retain his WBA world bantamweight title against the experienced Phillipino fighter Jerwin Ancajas (34-3-2, 23 KOs).

Ancajas is a tough fighter with plenty of power, as proven by his 23 victories by KO. He boasts an impressive ring IQ, which will test Inoue to the limits, ensuring this is a fascinating matchup.

Kosei Tanaka vs. Christian Bacasegua Rangel

Kosei Tanaka (19-1, 11 KOs) will take on Christian Bacasegua Rangel (22-4-2, 9 KOs) for the vacant WBO super flyweight world title. Tanaka is effective at forcing the pace in his fights. He has recovered well since his only defeat against the brilliant Kazuto Ioka. Tanaka places his shots well and carries power throughout his fights. 

Rangel will be the outsider in the fight but is incredibly brave. While not a big puncher, he is accurate with his shot selection and maintains a high work rate throughout his fights.
