According to the organizers, the event, to be hosted by the Shinsei Promotions, Misako Promotions and DANGAN boxing, will also include International Boxing Federation female atomweight championship bout between champion Ayaka Miyao of Watanabe Boxing Gym and challenger Mika Iwakawa of Himeji-Kinoshita Boxing Gym.

In addition to these, three female four-rounders are scheduled.
In the day’s press conference, Suzuki simply said, ‘’Since it will be my first title defense, I will do my best.’’ For her part, Kuroki said, ‘’It will be my first world title fight in a long time. I am determined to win the fight clearly so that I can cope with Ms. Miyao.’’
Miyao, setting the unification of the four world atomweight crowns as her target, said, ‘’I have always wanted to become stronger, and the unification of the titles of the four sanctioning bodies in the world would be an easiest way out.’’
