Undefeated teenage prospect Koyuru Tanoue to compete at Shooto 1220
Two more fights have been added to the Shooto 1220 card. Strawweights Koyuru Tanoue and Atsuhito Nagai will go head to head in Osaka next month.
Tanoue (3-0) is one of the most exciting prospects on the Shooto roster. The 18 year old was 7-0 as an amateur before turning pro last year.
This will be his second fight in a row against a more experienced opponent. Nagai (4-6) made his Shooto debut in 2016 and has also fought for Pancrase and Deep.
The other fight added to the card today is in the atomweight division. Miku Nakamura (3-2) will be looking to avenge her 2018 loss to Miyuki Furusawa (1-3) who submitted her with an armbar.
As previously announced the Pacific Rim lightweight title will be on the line at Shooto 1220. Yu Tanaka faces Shutaro Debana in Osaka on December 20th with the vacant strap up for grabs.
Shooto 1220 will also feature a bantamweight fight between Takumi Tamaru and Daiki Tsubota in Osaka on December 20th.
The other fight currently on the card is a catchweight contest set for 73kgs. Yota Hayashi has been matched with Yamato Nishikawa.
The event is set for Hotel Mielparque in Osaka. There will be a live audience in attendance.
