SportsNavi reports that retired puro legend Kenta Kobashi, who called it an in-ring career in May after 25 years, will return in June but on the other side of the business-he will produce his own independent event. His first event, called Fortune Dream 1 (FD1), will be held on June 8 at Korakuen. Kobashi announced the event is planned to feature 5-6 matches, no participation announced yet, and all seats will cost 7000 yen. As for whether Kobashi might step back into the ring himself there, almost certainly not. But he did say he hopes to make some matches he would like to see and didnít rule out the possibility of there being more than one event if this first one is successful, hopefully it will be.

More as it becomes available.
