Progress Tour 14 will be headlined with Flyweight King of Pancrase Kiyotaka Shimizu defending his belt against Yuki Yasunaga. Shimizu will be making the fifth defense of his belt since winning the championship back in 2010, while Yasunaga has more than earned his shot after winning his last seven fights.

After losing his lightweight title in April, long time veteran, Koji Oishi is dropping down to featherweight. The man who will be welcoming him to the division will be Neo Blood Tournament winner Jon Shores. A win for either man could see them emerge as a potential challenger to current featherweight king Takumi Nakayama.
