Provisional KOPW 2021 Toru Yano and his NJPW Power Struggle challenger The Great-O-Khan have proposed stipulations for their November 6 bout. 

Yano has proposed an amateur rules match, while O-Khan has proposed a kiss my feet match. The proposed stipulations will be posted in a poll on the NJPW Global Twitter account.

Both Yano and O-Khan have amateur wrestling backgrounds, while O-Khan is seeking revenge for Yano refusing to kiss his boot after their September 23 G1 Climax 31 bout. After Yano had seemingly accepted O-Khan's demand, he hit O-Khan with a low blow and escaped. 

Yano defeated O-Khan in their only other singles meeting in the 2021 New Japan Cup on March 11 to kick off their on-and-off feud.
