NJPW have confirmed this morning that Takahasi has suffered an injury to his left shoulder. 

This has led to him being pulled from tonight's card at Korakuen Hall. According to the statement, the injury occurred on 19th February in Morioka and is "currently undergoing medical evaluation". Takahasi, who is the current holder of the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship, was pulled from the February 20th event due to the injury. 

NJPW also noted that any further updates of Takahashi's injury will be made available as they come, and have apologised to fans and appreciate their understanding. 

We hope that Takahashi makes a quick and swift recovery and hope to see him back in the ring again soon!
