Teiken Promotions announces that the World Boxing Council bantamweight champion, Shinsuke Yamanaka (25-0-2 & 17 KO´s), will fight a rematch with Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno (36-4-1 and 12 KO´s), on September 16 at the Arena EDION, in Osaka, Japan.

The champion defeated the Panamanian fighter after a close bout by UD on September 2015 in Japan. Since then, Moreno has notched up important triumphs that have catapulted him back to a deserved and highly anticipated rematch bout with Yamanaka.

On the same card, the WBC super bantamweight world champion, Mexican Hugo Ruiz (36-3 and 32 KO´s), will make the first defense of his title against Japan’s Hozumi Hasegawa (35-5 and 15 KO´s).
