ROAD Fighting Championship is proud to announce the first match for Young Guns 32 on Xiaomi ROAD FC 037 on March 11, 2017 at
the Grand Hilton Convention Center in Seoul, South Korea.
For the Young Guns 32 preliminary card, former Shooto Champion Nezu Yuta returns against Jang Ik-Hwan. Nezu Yuta (19-9-1, Team & Mosh) is a former Shooto Champion with a brutally effective Muay Thai style. He has wins over “Wicky” Nishiura and Motonobu Tezuka, and the only time he was finished was by world-ranker Kyoji Horiguchi.
Nezu earned a highlight-reel head kick over Park Hyung-Geun and put on a thrilling battle against Moon Je-Hoon, but with that being a decision loss followed by a 15 second KO by bantamweight title challenger Lim Min-Woo, Nezu is hungry to get back to his stellar record.
Jang Ik-Hwan (4-1, Team Posse) is the Korea Federation of Muay Thai Champion and K-1 winning competitor who made an excellent transition to MMA. He rides a three-fight win streak of all finishes, including one by surprising submission. A liver kick floored his last opponent Yang Junkai, and at a whopping 177cm tall, his legs will be a threat to anyone across the cage from him.
Will Nezu mount his comeback over a fellow Muay Thai vet, or will Jang raise his value with a win over a massive veteran?
