Bouts Announced for Three August Shooto Cards

Shooto_logo_medium

Shooto released details for their August cards on their website today. There are a lot of Rookie Tournament bouts and fighters from local gyms, but one major scrap will be #2 flyweight "Shinpei" Tahara taking on #8 bantamweight Jesse Taitano in a catchweight bout on August 9th. Last time Taitano was in the ring, he drew with bantamweight champ "BJ" Kojima. Tahara is coming off of a June win, but has gone 1-1-1 in his last three.

Another bout of interest is on August 16th, with 2006 rookie champion "Leo" Konishi making his return to Shooto after three years.
