1/26 Shooto

Tuesday 8 January 2008

Have been waiting to present this card, mainly because I think there will be a few more fights added. The card is not looking great so far, but some interesting fights.

The main fight, currently, looks like it is the fight between Katsuya Toida and Hatsu Hioki. Hioki had a below average, by his standards (2-2), 2007 and will be looking to start of 2008 with a win. Toida went 1-1-1 in 2007, nothing spectacular in other words and will be hungry for a jump up the rankings. This should be a good fight.

BJ Kojima is continuing fight at featherweight, this time against So Tazawa. Tazawa is 0-3-1 in his last 4 fights. Both fighters really need to win this.

Also, coming in to the event with a 6 fight losing streak, streaching 4 years, Jin Akimoto. I have a feeling it will continue...

Here is the fights currently announced:

Katsuya Toida 10-7-3 vs. 13-3-1 Hatsu Hioki
Shinichi “BJ” Kojima 8-2-4 vs. 6-3-2 So Tazawa
Junji Ikoma 10-9-1 vs. 10-11-2 Jin Akimoto
Hayate Usui 7-6-1 vs. 3-3-0 Daisuke Ishizawa
Takuya Mori 4-2-0 vs. 3-4-0 Ayumu “Gozo” Shioda

Lets hope they fill up with a couple more fights.
