IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Jon Moxley will face challenger EVIL in a lumberjack death match at NJPW Dominion.

The new stipulation for the match on June 9th was made official in a New Japan social media post on Friday night.

The news came after EVIL gave an interview on the New Japan website on Thursday in which he made the challenge:

Since this low life mud show ‘wrestler’ wants to run away from any kind of a fair fight under IWGP rules then I have something for him. June 9 in Osaka Jo Hall, a Lumberjack Match for the title. That way he has no escape.
