Aoki vs. Calvancante Confirmed for DREAM.3 Fight Card

0's Jacob Spharler reporting:

The first match between Gesias “JZ” Calvancante and Shinya Aoki at the Heiwa DREAM.1 Light Weight Grand Prix was one of the most anticipated fights of the year. It ended in major disappointment when it was declared a no contest due to “JZ” striking Aoki with “illegal” elbows. Now DREAM officials have come to a conclusion and have granted a rematch between “JZ” and Aoki.

The bout is scheduled to take place at Olympia DREAM.2 on April 29 at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. The winner of the fight will then advance to the 2nd round of the Light Weight Grand Prix at Heiwa DREAM.3 on May 11, and face Katsuhiko Nagata.
