Zack Sabre Jr. has announced that he will be invoking his right to a rematch for the RevPro British Heavyweight Championship, currently held by the “Stone Pitbull” Tomohiro Ishii. The two will clash at New Japan’s annual Tokyo Dome show on January 4th.
The match was made official this weekend after members of Suzuki-Gun attacked Ishii following a successful title defense against David Starr at RevPro’s Uprising event in London, England.
