Kotetsu Boku signs for Rizin, set to face Mikuru Asakura
Kotetsu Boku has signed with Rizin. The 42 year old appears to have been released by ONE Championship after losing three in a row but didn’t have to wait long to find a new home.
A bout between Boku and Mikuru Asakura is penciled in for Rizin 22. The event is set for the Yokohama Arena on April 19th.
Boku (26-14-2) signed for ONE Championship in 2012 and was handed a title shot in his promotional debut. He became the first man to ever hold the promotion’s lightweight belt.
Asakura (12-1-0-1) is 16 years his junior and riding an eight fight winning streak. He has emerged as one of the biggest stars on the Rizin roster and has a big following on Youtube.
