11/29 Shooto Tradition 04 - First fights announced

Monday 29 September 2008

Shooto announced a few things relating to this card yesterday, and already it looks good. Most likely the main event will be the world lightweight title fight between Hideki Kadowaki (champion) and "Lion" Takeshi Inoue. Takeshi is coming off a loss to Savant Young in Tradition 01, but is getting a shot at the world title. Kadowaki has built a lot of comfidence with his 2 last fights, submitting Rumina Sato and getting a decision win over Akitoshi Tamura to claim the title belt. This will be his first defence and it should be a very good fight.

Shooto also announced the participation of two of their biggest stars, Rumina Sato and welterweight champion Takashi Nakakura, to face a yet to be named opponents. Also on the card, Tazawa So will take on the rising star Hiromasa Ogikubo in what is sure to be a very good fight.

Hideki Kadowaki 13-7-2 vs. 14-3-0 "Lion" Takeshi Inoue
So Tazawa 8-3-2 vs. 5-0-1 Hiromasa Ogikubo
Jin Kazeta 8-8-2 vs. 5-1-1 Yutaka Ueda

Takashi Nakakura 10-2-1
Rumina Sato 24-12-2
