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!
At ROAD FC 024 in Japan, the Middleweight Title Match will be contested for by celebrated Japanese fighter Riki Fukuda in his own country, against a tough Korean prospect Jeon Uh-Jin.
"The Legendary Trio" of Korea's famous Mixed Martial Artists will appear on ROAD FC 024, and they will meet their Japanese counterparts in thrilling battles. "Techno Goliath" Choi Hong-Man will take on brutal striker Carlos Toyota. Judoka Yoon Dong-Sik will finally face fellow PRIDE veteran Takase Daiju. "Heavy Tank from Busan" Choi Mu-Bae goes against the first DEEP Megaton Champion "Crusher" Kawaguchi Yusuke.
World-famous Ikuhisa "Minowaman" will face Muay Thai Champion Kim Dae-Sung in what promises to be a very fast and exciting match! In a clash of two of Asia's top bantamweights, Korea's Kim Soo-Chul will face Japan's stand out veteran Nakahara Taiyo. A special women's bout will feature Japan's MMA queen Shinashi Satoko who will face Korea's rising star Park Ji-Hye.
