NJPW’s Satsuma no Kuni event will include two championship matches in Kagoshima.

Kagoshima Arena will play host to the event that sees Shingo Takagi defend the KOPW Championship against Taichi in the main event.

Takagi is coming off one of the best matches of the year after defending the title against Aaron Henare in an ‘Ultimate Triad’ match last week at Korakuen Hall.

Taichi will look to add another championship to the ‘Just Five Guys’ stable after SANADA won the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship at Sakura Genesis.

Satsuma no Kuni features a second championship on the line with new IWGP tag champions Aussie Open defending their belts against TMDK’s Mikey Nicholls & Shane Haste.
