ROAD Fighting Championship Middleweight Champion Lee Eun Soo returns to the cage at ROAD FC 11 on April 13, 2013 at Seoul’s Olympic Hall in his first title defense against none other than Ikuhisa Minowa.
Shungo Oyama won the Road FC Middleweight Grand Prix in 2012 by beating three Korean fighters, including Denis Kang, but he lost the title when he was stopped by Soo last November.
With a 16-4-1 record the 30-year old is Korea’s top middleweight at present but Minowa has been on fine form of late, winning eight out of his last ten fights. The 37 year old made his debut in 1996 and has had in the region of 100 fights facing the likes of Wanderlei Silva, Quentin Jackson, Kazushi Sakuraba and Mirko Filipovic.
Road FC 11 will also feature the final of the Lightweight Grand Prix which pits Japan’s Takasuke Kume with Korean Yui Chul Nam.
