29 May, 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.
At ROAD FC 024, Ikuhisa "Minowaman" will face Kim Dae-Sung. Minowaman is one of Japan's most exciting and well-loved fighters. Kim has no hesitations on taking this fight even though he is on a 2 fight losing streak. Kim is a Muay Thai Champion who is always quick to engage. This promises to be a very fast and unpredictable match!
In the first of the two remaining bouts to be announced for ROAD FC 024, Korean top bantamweight Kim Soo-Chul will face Japan's stand out veteran Nakahara Taiyo. Kim is the former ONE FC Bantamweight Champion who is on a 3 fight win streak in ROAD FC over all UFC veterans. Kim is just 23 years old and considered to be one of the best prospects to ever be produced in Korean MMA. Nakahara has a list of opponents that is spectacular and he was previously considered to be the Sengoku top contender. Nakahara is one of the best bantamweight fighters in Japan. Kim and Nakahara are both extremely well-rounded, quick, and talented. This will be a hotly contested match between Asia's two most notable bantamweight fighters!
In the opening match for the Main Card, sharp newcomer Kim Seung-Yeon will test himself against Japan's brutal striker Ohara Juri. Kim put away fan favorite "Oka" Nandin Erdene in his professional debut with an incredible display of striking ability.
Ohara is known as a most threatening striker from DEEP, where he holds 12 knock outs in his 16 wins. Can Kim prove that he is the bright prospect people think he is, or will Ohara add another KO to his long list? In the ROAD FC 024 opening match, don't blink because sparks will fly!
As previously announced, the ROAD FC Middleweight Title Match will be contested for by Riki Fukuda and Jeon Uh-Jin.
"The Legendary Trio" of Korea's famous Mixed Martial Artists will appear on ROAD FC 024 as Choi Hong-Man faces Carlos Toyota, Yoon Dong-Sik takes on Takase Daiju and Choi Mu-Bae goes against Kawaguchi Yusuke.
