In just over a week Shoot Boxing is puttin on another event in Korakuen Hall. Added today was Shooto legend Mamoru, who have turned to ShootBoxing lately. He is doing well and has a 2-1 record so far. This time he is fighting the #3 ranked (I dont know if they publish rankings..) super bantamweight, Masahiro Fujimoto.
American MMA fans will also recognize the Ring of Fire champion, Tyler Toner, who is coming back for his 2nd ShootBoxing fight. Toner won his debut fight (the main-event no less) by a 1st round KO in June. I am sure a lot of people will be excited to see him back in Japan.
It should be another very good card, and being on a Friday this will be just about sold out.
