Today "Lion" Takeshi finally had his opponent announced, it is Gerald Lovato. Lovato is an experienced fighter and a veteran of KOTC. He is on a 2 fight winning streak, coming into his Shooto debut.
"Lion" will not be putting the title on the line here, and he has stated that would like to defend against Hioki on a future date. This might very well be a warm-up to that fight.
It also looks like that completes the Shooto card for January 23.
