Japanese organization Sengoku gets back in the action with a bout set, the Sengoku Raiden Championship 15, on October 30.

World Victory Road’s upcoming event will roll out its welterweight grand prix and the quarterfinals of the 20-man Asian bantamweight competition. It will be aired live on HDNet from Ryogoku Kokugikan, Tokyo.

Keita Nakamura (pictured) will face Takuya Wada in a welterweight fight; Yasubey Enomoto and Taisuke Okuno will fight one another in the same division.

Bantamweight bouts will feature Wataru Takahashi vs Shoko Sato, Jae Hyun So vs Shintaro Ishitawari–all winners from the Sengoku Asia qualifying tourney last July 4, and then the Sengoku Raiden Championship 14 before making it to the quarterfinals.

The finals will most likely take place later this year and will award the first-ever Sengoku welterweight champion.
