HEAT 35 will take place on March 22, 2015 in Nagoya, Japan. The promotion’s first event of the year will feature three title matches.

Middleweight Champion Hisaki Kato will be making his first defense since winning the title in HEAT 31 during April of 2014. The All Japan Kudo Champ sits undefeated at 4-0 since joining the promotion, and every one of his wins has come by way of knock out.

Welterweight Champion Takagi Kenta will make his first defense of the title as the second champ on the card. He won the belt over a tough Yoichiro Sato to cement himself on the Japanese scene. The long time journeyman sandwiched his original conquest of the belt with bouts in Pancrase against other top-notch opponents as well. His most recent fight was an unsuccessful title challenge to black belt BJJ whiz Marcos Souza in Real Fight.

Kickboxing Middleweight Champion Danilo Zanolini will also take his place once again as HEAT’s kickboxing Kingpin as he defends against a yet-to-be announced challenger.
