RISE - which means ( R ) Real, ( I ) Impact, ( S ) Sports, ( E ) Entertainment - is a fight company owned by Mr. Takashi Ito, based in Tokyo, capital of Japan. RIZIN”, promoted by Nobuyuki Sakakibara.
RISE has already promoted more than 130 shows in Japan and 2 in South Korea. Since its inception, RISE has been the main competitor of K-1, placing Japanese athletes at the top of “striking” fights, a term used to designate the 'standing fights'.
After being announced for March 11, “RISE 139” was postponed due to the spread of the new coronavirus in Japan.
Now, the event that is also called 'Rise World Series 2020 1st Round' will be held on April 29, 2020 (Wednesday / holiday) at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo.
Also added to the 'RISE 139' card was a fight between Manazo Kobayashi, a new WPMF women's flyweight world champion and first female class champion at the Muaythai Open and YAYA Willa Sacrek, J-GIRLS champion, in the category super flyweight.
Kobayashi made his professional debut in February 2015 and remained undefeated for 13 fights before losing to Iliana Valentino in a boxing match in July 2018.
She actively participated in the 'KNOCK OUT' promotion, as a highlight of the women's division and, in December 2018, won a national clash with Saya Ito. In April 2019, she won her rematch with Iliana on 'KNOCK OUT', getting her revenge.
However, Kobayashi was disqualified from the “RISE QUEEN” tournament at RISE last July, for not hitting the weight to fight in the mini-flyweight category.
On her return to the promotion in November, she challenged Tananchanok, WPMF flyweight world champion, and won the world title.
Originally, Kobayashi could have played a leading role in the girls-only “RISE GIRLS POWER” tournament that kicked off in November of last year. It is expected that in this fight she can overcome the mistakes of the past.
Kobayashi sent a message to the fans saying: - “This is a battle that will be a turning point in my life. The opponent is the champion of another group. I want to win desperately. ”- she wrote on her Twitter account.
