Officials confirmed the bouts on Facebook.

PXC 42 takes place February 28th at the UOG Fieldhouse in Guam. The night’s main card, which features a headlining 145-lbs title bout between reigning champ Jang Yong Kim (7-5-1) and challenger Toby Misech (4-2), is expected to stream online, free-of-charge, at the following link.

Camacho (pictured), 24, is a Lloyd Irvin protege with seven first round stoppages to his credit. A four-time PXC vet, Camacho made his return to the promotion at PXC 38 last year, following a four year hiatus. There was little cage rust, however, as he earned a third round knockout triumph – his second knockout on the trot.

He’s set to welcome former UFC vet, Keita Nakamura, to the PXC banner. The 29-year-old, who carried a 0-3 record in the octagon, is coming off five straight victories which includes a submission win over ONE FC’s current Welterweight title contender, Nobutatsu Suzuki. The submission ace opened his career with a brilliant 15-0-2 record, before experiencing mixed results between 2006 and 2008. Now, with a resume of victories over names such as Adriano Martins, Yasubey Enomoto and Yoshiyuki Yoshida, a win against Camacho could propel the 29-year-old Japanese fighter to a possible title shot.

Reyes fights for the third time in the space of six months. He was last seen at PXC 40 in October, where he scored a highlight reel flying knee knockout over Tae Kyun Kim. Reyes has been staple of PXC’s since 2009, and has to date fought entirely under the promotion’s banner.

Yachi, meanwhile, is a former Shooto vet whose promotional debut ended in dismay against none other than the aforementioned Toby Misech. The 23-year-old was on a tear with a five-fight winning skid before that setback, but managed to get back in the win column at Vale Tudo Japan 3rd with a Unanimous Decision victory over “Lion” Takeshi Inoue. Yachi is one of Japan’s finest 145-lbs fighters who trains with the likes of former ONE FC champ Kotetsu Boku, and UFC vet Norifumi Yamamoto at Krazy Bee.

Keep it locked to for more updates on PXC 42.

As it stands, the updated line-up for the event includes:

  • – Jang Yong Kim vs. Toby Misech (For PXC Featherweight Championship title)
  • – Frank Camacho vs. Keita Nakamura
  • – Kyle Reyes vs. Yusuke Yachi
  • – Kailin Curran vs. TBA
