11/29 Shooto Tradition 04 - Rumina vs. Hatsu Hioki Announced

Tuesday 21 October 2008

Shooto have added 2 fights to their Tradition 04 card. This will be held in Korakuen Hall November 29 and should be an awesome event.

The card is looking very good already and today they added the fight between Rumina Sato and Hatsu Hioki, two of their biggest stars, but also 2 fighters that need to get back to the sort of form we are used to seeing them in.

Despite having average form lately (winning "only" 4 of his last 7), Hioki coming off a win in TKO 35 and a draw in his last Shooto fight, and is still ranked #5. Rumina Sato has lost 4 of his last 5, but is still ranked #6. He has never been the Shooto world champion, but win the Shooto Pacific Rim belt in 2005. Rumina is definitely one of the biggest stars in Shooto.

In the other fight added today, Atsushi Takeuchi will take on Katsuya Murofushi. Both these fighters lost against Noboru Tahara in their last fight, Takeuchi in an awesome fight (worth a watch if you havent seen it). This should be a very good fight.

Already on the card is the Lightweight title fight between Hideki Kadowaki and "Lion" Takeshi.

Hatsu Hioki 16-3-2 vs. 24-12-2 Rumina Sato
Atsushi Takeuchi 4-4-2 vs. 3-3-0 Katsuya Murofushi
