   Xiaomi ROAD FC 037 update: Raika vs Kang, 2 more matches set for ROAD FC XX

For immediate release:

February 17, 2017 – ROAD Fighting Championship is proud to announce three more matches for ROAD FC XX on Xiaomi ROAD FC 037 on March 11, 2017 at the Grand Hilton Convention Center in Seoul, South Korea.

 

The rematch of Kang Jin-Hee and Raika Emiko

Kang Jin-Hee (0-2, Apgujeong Gym) dubbed the “Female Kwon A-Sol” started MMA at just 16 years old where she went 1-2 in her first year as an amateur in the ROAD FC Central League. Her transition to pro MMA was a harsh one, as she went toe-to-toe with the greatest female Japanese boxer of all time, Raika. Although she dropped the decision and her next in China , she proved to be a viciously durable opponent.

Raika Emiko (3-4, Tribe Tokyo MMA) was a champion boxer with titles for the WIBA, IFBA and OPBF, going 25-8-1 in boxing with 10 KOs over a long 14 years of competition. Raika transitioned to MMA and has been active across the Pacific Rim. Now Raika makes her first appearance in ROAD FC in ROAD FC XX.

Will Kang finally get her pacing and live up to her moniker, or will Raika prove that she still has her number?

Lim So-Hee vs Hana Date

“Wushu Queen” Lim So-Hee (0-1, Namwonjung Mumun) versus Hana Date (2-3, Team DATE) will be an interesting match up stylistically. Lim studied Chinese wushu and Hana studies the ancient Indian art of Maharaja Kalurika. Lim will be hoping her stand up record of 14-5 will give her the edge, but Hana’s approach is unusual and will be different than anything she’s faced before.

 

Kim Hae-In vs Shim Yu-Ri

Top ranked Taekwondo fighter and national Sanda champ Kim Hae-In (0-1, Ssabi MMA) versus national Muay Thai champion Shim Yoo-Ree (debut, Team Genius) will see two highly experienced strikers face off in their new MMA careers. Both fighters started competing in amateur MMA in the ROAD FC Central League before turning pro. Lim lost her first pro match in ROAD FC and will be looking to turn her luck around when she greets Shim in her debut in ROAD FC XX.

Previously announced for ROAD FC XX, the first all-female fight card for ROAD FC, young prospect Lee Ye-Ji will rematch Shinashi Satoko, pioneer of women’s MMA. For the Young Guns 32 preliminary card, former Shooto Champion Nezu Yuta returns against Jang Ik-Hwan.

ROAD FC XX.

New Wave MMA ROAD FC is the stage where legends shine, rookies thrill, and epic battles are waged that determine the future of MMA. From the pageantry of the grand entrance to the final crunch of the KO, ROAD FC showcases the very best of Mixed Martial Arts sports and entertainment. As we say in Korea, “Fighting!”
