Shooto: 3rd Round 2013 Fight Card Set

It was announced today that Shooto will hold their “3rd Round 2013” event on July 27th.

The card will feature two titles on the line.

Crafty submission specialist, and top prospect “Uruka” Sasaki gets set to defend his Pacific Rim Featherweight belt for the first time against Kenji Yamamoto. Yuta looks to keep his win streak intact, and go six in a row. While Yamamoto has earned his shot going 3-0-1 since being KO’d by Akihito Ishihara in the first round.

Ryuichi Miki has looked great as of late, but will have his hands full when he goes up against Yosuke Saruta for the vacant Bantamweight belt. In his last fight Saruta brutally knocked out Kentaro to make it five in a row.

Also on the card Super Flyweight King of PANCRASE Kiyotaka Shimizu takes on Kentaro Watanabe in what could turn out to be a fun scrap. Watanabe looks to bounce back after his KO loss, while Shimizu has won three straight.
