Dream.17 takes place July 16th inside the Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo, Japan. While a pair of championship affairs are slated to headline the show, it’s Dream’s Bantamweight Grand Prix that has hoarded most of the card’s headlines.

Masakazu Imanari and Hideo Tokoro will meet in the finals to determine the company’s first bantamweight champion.

As of now, no broadcast plans have been announced for the star-studded show. If the event is made available in North America, HDNet would likely play host.
