Earlier this year we saw second generation fighter Ken Shiro (1-0) make his debut with a dominant and impressive 6 round victory over the very experienced Heri Amol. The bout was a statement win for the youngster who may have failed to score a stoppage though was a clear winner and seemed to immediately be another top prospect to keep an eye on.
Following Ken Shiro's debut his father, Hisashi Teraji, stated that Ken Shiro would be back in the ring again on October 19th. For the past weeks we have been awaiting more details and at one point we were actually worried that the youngster wouldn't end up fighting on the date after all. Thankfully though our fears were calmed today when it was it was announced that Ken Shiro would be in afterall.
What we now know is that the Japanese youngster will taking part in an 8 round bout being fought at a contracted 50KG (110.25lbs) weight limit. Sadly we aren't aware of his opponent as of yet though the bout will be part of the under-card of a show headlined by Shohei Omori's bout with Bunta Mitaka.
