I guess I'd need to watch the first fight then so I can have an opinion if this fight even needs to happen. Seriously, I've not read one person say Palicte won that fight.

It's funny because the general consensus is that Ioka was unlucky not to get the decision over Nietes last time out, yet he's being frozen out for this rematch.

Any updates would be welcomed on aston palicate and Kazuto Ioka next fights
It seems like Palicte and Ioka will fight against each other for the vacant WBO title. They're the two highest guys in the WBO rankings available to fight for the belt.

Although there's no confirmation about it at this stage.

Been informed the undercard stream goes live at 2:40 UK time, though there is a feeling that that's not going to be when the fights start and the stream will kick off later

One sided beatdown by Tanaka. So much for the preposterous suggestions by a few eejits that he ducked Taguchi at light flyweight.

Is there any news on Daigo Higa od Sho ishida next fights any news would be welcome
Daigo Higa was suspended by the JBC due to failing to make weight against Rosales. The suspension still hasn't ended it would seem, but Higa is in training ready to make a comeback in the coming months (according to Asian Boxing).

Kazuto Ioka and Aston Palicte are about to share far more in common than separate controversially scored bouts with Donnie Nietes.

BoxingScene.com has learned that talks have rapidly progressed for a vacant title fight between the two, with plans to square off in late spring or early summer. An official announcement is forthcoming for Ioka and Palicte to contend for the vacant World Boxing Organization (WBO) super flyweight title.
