From MLW:

Low Ki vs. Davey Boy Smith Jr. set for Opera Cup tomorrow night in NYC

Low Ki has officially entered the Opera Cup, stepping in for Shinjiro Otani, who withdrew overnight. Now, two of MLW's fiercest fighters collide for the first time ever tomorrow night at the Melrose Ballroom.

MLW today announced Low Ki vs. Davey Boy Smith Jr in an opening round match for the Opera Cup at the Melrose Ballroom in New York City next Thursday December 5. The event will be a MLW FUSION TV taping for beIN SPORTS.

Tickets start at $20 at: http://www.OperaCup.com. 

The historic opening round of the Opera Cup is global in scale with several countries represented. 

The "Lone Wolf of Brooklyn" Low Ki has made it his goal to claim the prestigious Opera Cup and he has the credentials to be an instant favorite to go all the way. A former World Heavyweight Champion, Low Ki is the rare athlete who can match Davey Boy Smith's striking skills, grappling and submission skills.

Tomorrow's event will feature the return of the Opera Cup tournament after a 71 year hiatus. Featuring 4 opening round bouts, the league has invited some of the best wrestlers from around the world to compete in this one night single elimination tournament.

Standing in Low Ki's way is the man whose grandfather last won the Opera Cup in 1948: Davey Boy Smith Jr.  Smith along with the Hart family have donated the family heirloom to the league and has revived the historic Opera Cup tournament to celebrate the sport’s history and reintroduce the coveted cup.

Fighting for his family’s legacy and the coveted Opera Cup trophy, Smith promises to match Low Ki hold for hold, move for move and strike for strike as the two strong style combatants collide in New York City.
