Coming up next week, Japan’s Shootboxing organization, presenter’s of last weekend Girls S-Cup show, will host their next card. The event takes place on September 4, and so far only two matches have been announced:
Tyler Toner vs. Takaaki Umeno
Hiroki Shishido vs. Bowiei So Udomson
Toner earned the main event spot by upseting Shootboxing’s #1 star Kenichi Ogata on June 1, defeating Ogata by KO in 1 round after taking the fight on short notice. Primarily an MMA fighter with a record of 9-1 and trained by Duane Ludwig, Toner looks to continue his momentum here against Umeno.
