ROAD FC announced that Middleweight King of Pancrase Ryo Kawamura will travel to South Korea to take on Dool Hee Lee at ROAD FC 12.
This will be be Kawamura’s first bout since his devastating K.O loss to Melvin Manhoef back in October last year. Kawamura’s participation at ROAD FC 12 should come as no surprise, its seems to be all part of Pancrase’s “Global Standard”. With their partnerships with Wand Fight Team and AKA, Pancrase have opened it’s doors to world class talent, putting them up against the best of the promotion’s roster. But that’s not enough, they are now sending out their top fighters to compete all around the world to prove themselves outside of home territory: former featherweight champ Koji Oishi will challenge Honorio Banario for ONE FC gold in the Philippines, current Featherweight KOP Takumi Nakayama will compete in PXC in June, and rising star Yoshiaki Takahashi will fight for Russian promotion GFC.
Kawamura’s opponent Lee holds a 7-7 record and is veteran of DEEP, M-1 and Spirit MC.
