From ROAD FC:

Lee Kwang-Hee replaces Kim Seung-Yeon at ROAD FC 024 in JAPAN on 25 July, 2015 at the Ariake Coliseum in Tokyo.

15 June, 2015 – ROAD Fighting Championship will launch its global expansion by holding its first-ever overseas event in Tokyo, Japan on 25 July, 2015.  ROAD FC 024 will take place at the 10,000-seat Ariake Coliseum, the 2020 Summer Olympics venue for tennis.

Lee "Krazy" Kwang-Hee will replace Kim Seung-Yeon against Ohara Juri, due to Kim sustaining a fractured nose in training.  Lee (Team Extreme Combat) is coming off a title challenge in March of this year, and is fully recovered for his next fight.  Well-known Ohara (Kiba Martial Arts Club) is a crucial fighter for ROAD FC's entrance to Japan. Both of these strikers have substantial experience, and neither of them knows how to go backwards.  Expect an all-out striking war when Lee and Ohara meet in the opening match for ROAD FC 024 in Japan!
