4/3 ShootBoxing - RESULTS *Azeredo in a close fight*

Saturday 4 April 2009

There are a couple of things that are guarateed when ShootBoxing puts on an event in Korakuen Hall. One is that it will be just about a full house, it will also be a very good value ticket. And lately their events have featured some high profile MMA stars trying out this sport. For those who dont know what ShootBoxing is, it is something like Strike Box. It is K-1 rules, with standing submissions and takedowns. No ground fighting though. If you want to have a closer look at the rules, here is a link: www.shootboxing.org.

Yesterday the MMA stars were represented by Shooto star Mamoru "The Fro" Yamaguchi, Pride veteran Luiz Azeredo and HEROs veteran Bernard Ackah.

Azeredo fought in the main-event taking on ShootBoxing star Hiroki Shishido, and it was a very close fight. All the judges scored it 30-30 after 3 rounds, but in the first extention round Shishido got the decision 3-0 (10-9 from all judges).
