The first match for AEW’s Battle of the Belts III was announced and it will actually be a title match for the ROH World title.

New champion Claudio Castagnoli, who won the title at Death Before Dishonor, will be defending against Japanese star Konosuke Takeshita. This will be the second time that the ROH World title will be defended on Battle of the Belts as Jonathan Gresham beat Dalton Castle to retain at BotB II this past April.

The one-hour Battle of the Belts III airs on Saturday, August 6 on TNT. The show will not be live and is being taped the day before along with a live episode of Rampage in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
