8/9 Shooto - Saitama Gig 1

Tuesday 23 June 2009

First of, there will be less updates for a few days. I am just moving in to a new place and getting internet hooked up is proving more difficult than I thought...

Anyway, Shooto will start a series called Saitama Gig. The first event will be held in Fujimi city's Kira Fujimi Mainhall on August 9.

Yesterday there was a few very interesting additions to this card. Flyweight ranked #2 Shinpei Tahara is taking on bantamweight ranked #8, Jessie Taitano, at 54kg. Taitano has taken Shooto stars Shinichi Kojima and Yasuhiro Urushitani to draws, and this should be a very interesting fight. Tahara is coming of an impressive win against Shinya Murofushi.

The very popular Mikitoshi Yamagami has done very well when fighing in Shinjuku Face, his only loss came in his only fight outside that arena. Now he will travel again and it will be interesting to see if his fans follow him. If they do, the crowd will be very loud in his fight against "Tiger" Ishii.

54kg: Noboru "Shinpei" Tahara 6-3-1 vs. 5-3-2 Jessie Taitano
Fly: Mikitoshi Yamagami 3-1-0 vs. 5-7-2 Takehiro "Tiger" Ishii

Rookie Tournament: 
Bantam: Yosuke Saruta 0-2-0 vs. Kotetsu
Fly: Kazuyuki Yoshida 0-3-0 vs. Shuichiro Okumura

Komei Okada 5-9-2

Ticket Prices: RS 7,000/ S 6,000/A 5,000/B 4,000
