A huge Champion vs. Champion match is set for NJPW's upcoming Sengoku Lord show.
In a post-Dominion press conference, NJPW announced that double IWGP Heavyweight & Intercontinental Champion EVIL will defend both titles against IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Hiromu Takahashi in the main event of Sengoku Lord on July 25. The match comes after Takahashi issued a challenge to EVIL, his former stablemate, moments after EVIL defeated Tetsuya Naito at Dominion to win both titles.
In addition, the full cards for the New Japan Road show on July 20 and Sengoku Lord have been announced. The only other title match taking place on either show is a NEVER Openweight Championship match between Shingo Takagi and El Desperado at Sengoku Lord.
