Hiroki Shishido vs "Lion" Takeshi Inoue Announced for Shoot the Shooto 2011

Back in September, Shooto and Shootboxing announced that they were going to put on a 2-day event with the first day being an MMA card titled Shooto the Shoot on November 5th and the second day being a kickboxing card titled Shoot the Shooto on November 6th. Shootboxing announced Andy Souwer, Hiroki Shishido, Bovy Sor Udomson, Toby Imada and Hiroaki Suzuki would all participate on the Shootboxing card. Today, Shootboxing announced the first matchup for their half of the event and it is a cross-promotional tilt between Shootboxing mainstay Hiroki Shishido and former Shooto Lightweight (143-lb) champion “Lion” Takeshi Inoue.

Shishido hasn’t had the best luck as of late, starting with last year’s S-Cup where he faced eventual tournament champion Buakaw Por Pramuk in the quarterfinals, losing a unanimous decision. He managed a unanimous decision win over Bovy Sor Udomson in February, but ran into MMA fighter Toby Imada who was surprising everyone in Shootboxing and continued to do so with a decision win over Shishido. “Lion” Takeshi was one of the brightest prospects in Shooto and with his ascension to DREAM, I believe he’s shed the title of prospect. He originally won the Shooto Lightweight title in May of 2006 over Antonio Carvalho before losing it a year later to Akitoshi Tamura. Another loss to Savant Young seemed like a big setback, but Inoue bounced back with a win over Hideki Kadowaki to win the title back. Back to back TKO wins over lower weight legends Rumina Sato and Alexandre “Pequeño” Nogueira seemed like a big step forward for the fighter, but he ultimately lost his title in May of 2010 to consensus world #2 featherweight Hatsu Hioki. His first fight in DREAM ended up being a lackluster performance and decision loss to Kazuyuki Miyata in what could be seen as a bursting of Inoue’s prospect bubble. However the loss has seemed to motivate him, as he has scored 3 straight KO wins over fellow prospect Taiki Tsuchiya, DEEP champion Koichiro Matsumoto and legend Caol Uno. Inoue is primarily a striker, so this is a good matchup for Shootboxing to make, however he has a bit of an odd style and I see Shishido as a big favorite in this fight.

The MMA side of the event also has some good matchups for those interested. Shooto 115-lb champ 41-year old Junji Ikoma defends his title for the first time in his second straight fight against someone more than 15 years his junior in Mikihito Yamagami. Former 123-lb champ Shinichi “BJ” Kojima takes on Pancrase Flyweight champion Kiyotaka Shimizu and finally, Guy Delumeau takes on Issei Tamura while Tenkei Oda battles Wataru Miki in the semifinals of a tournament for the vacant Shooto Pacific Rim Lightweight title.{jcomments on}

Latest Rankings Of Lumpinee Stadium

The latest rankings from Lumpinee stadium are out. 115, 126, and 130 all got new champions at the last big show in September. Another interesting note in that Japanese fighter Genji Umeno is now #9 at 126 thanks to him knockout win over Wuttidet Lukprabart in Japan. Champions at 105-112 are generally young teens who grow out of the weight quickly. That is the case with Phetmorakot, Lomtaley, and Aekmongkol. They all fight 4-10 pounds higher now, and will likely vacate, or already have vacated. Once again these rankings are from

Yuta Kubo vs Tristan Benard Announced for Krush.13

Earlier today Krush announced the final fight for November 12th's Krush.13: Krush vs Europe series and it is 2011 K-1 MAX -63kg Japan Tournament champion Yuta Kubo taking on France's Tristan Benard. Kubo is currently on a 6-fight win streak and has won 11 of his last 12. Kubo is arguably the top 63kg fighter in Japan and the hottest at the moment, making it to the finals of 3 straight tournaments and finally winning his first championship back in June. I don't have much information on Benard, but he fights under K-1 rules in France and lost a decision to ISKA title holder Thomas Adamandopoulos who picked up a win over Keiji Ozaki at Krush.11 in August.

This fight joins two Krush vs Europe fights that are already announced which are Krush 60kg champion Hirotaka Urabe vs Mike's Gym's Maik Redan as well as Krush 55kg champion Shota Takiya vs the UK's Damien Trainor.{jcomments on}
