Yuichi Nakanishi will defend his middleweight King of Pancrase title on Nov. 28 at the Korakuen Hall in Tokyo. He will face Izuru Takeuchi in a rematch of their bout from December of last year in which Nakanishi walked away with a split decision victory.
Since their first meeting, Takeuchi has gone 2-1. Nakanishi, meanwhile, has only fought once during that time, which was a submission loss to Tim McKenzie in August at the Bodog Fight taping in Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
