A women’s openweight fight between Yoshiko Hirano and Young Ji Kim has been added to the ROAD FC 45 event on December 23. The bout will mark one of the first in the organization’s new 180lbs + division.
Take a look at ROAD FC’s press release for the fight below:
As previously announced, outstanding women’s professional wrestler from Japan, Yoshiko (2-0, SEAdLINNNG), will be making her third appearance in an MMA bout in the ROAD FC cage.
Kim Young-Ji (0-2, Team J) will be her next opponent. Kim competed in judo throughout high school, and then grew her MMA skills in the ROAD FC amateur Central League while competing in kickboxing. She made her professional debut in Japan’s DEEP against the current phenom King Reina, and followed up with a Shooto match against Sarah McCann. Although Kim has yet to win in her pro career, she’s not daunted by her next opponent.
Yoshiko versus Kim Young-Ji will show a very powerful young wrestler versus an hungry new judoka with striking skills in what should be a fast and brutal fight.
