Shooto 0801 is set for Tokyo on August 1st. The event will be taking place at the Korakuen Hall, the venue that hosted the promotion’s inaugural event in 1989.

While other Japanese promotions have been on hiatus due to the coronavirus, or Covid-19, Shooto has managed to put on several cards so far this year.
Next up for the promotion is Shooto 0712 which is set for Osaka next month. That card will feature title fights in the lightweight and flyweight divisions.
