Kanehara To Jackson’s MMA! First SRC 12 Pre-Sale Sold Out On First Day
A ZST.22 press conference was held today where SENGOKU FW Champion Masanori Kanehara was present. Though no opponent is set for him yet he said that he’s happy to be back for a fight in ZST after becoming champion. About his title defense on NYE, he wants to have another go at Hatsu Hioki.
Kanehara will head for the U.S. to train at Greg Jackson’s MMA gym on Tuesday for a month. He says that he’d like to learn everything there.
The ZST PR said that a possible opponent for Kanehara was none other than Kanehara’s friend, Hideo Tokoro. However, it seems that Tokoro got injured in his last fight. The PR also said that ZST have relationships with DREAM, SRC, and Pancrase, and he wants to choose an opponent after looking into the current affairs of those organizations.
Shunichi Shimizu has been added to the card and Masayuki Okude’s opponent is Kenichi Ito from the rising Alliance-Square gym of Tsuyoshi Kohsaka.
In other news, the first SRC 12 ticket pre-sale which was going to go on from 12 PM today until the 25th is already over since the tickets were sold out today. I don’t know how many tickets they sold.
The second ticket pre-sale is now set for October 31st to November 2nd.
