New opponent named for Rin Nakai's Nov. 13 fight.

Rin Nakai, Charlene Watt
On this Sunday's PANCRASE show at Differ Ariake, Rin Nakai was supposed to face Brazilian Priscila de Souza. Last week I heard that Priscila was forced to pull out due to injury. Today PANCRASE announced that New Zealander Charlene Watt will take her place. Charlene is 29 years old from Hamilton, New Zealand. Her record is 6-2 in the Australian regional circuit. She is the XFC Australia Flyweight Champion. In her last fight, she lost to Faith Van Duin on the June 17 BRACE show in New Zealand. This was her first fight at Bantamweight. It didn't say in PANCRASE's press release what weight class this fight will be in. It probably doesn't matter much. This is a big step up in competition for Charlene. It will be her first fight outside the Australian regional circuit and the competition level is very low. Rin shouldn't have any trouble with her.
