ROAD Fighting Championship announces the next match for Xiaomi ROAD FC 040 on July 15, 2017 in the Jangchung Arena in Seoul, South Korea. Raika Emiko will take on Kim Hae-In in a Women’s flyweight bout.

Raika Emiko (5-4, Tribe Tokyo MMA) was a champion boxer with titles in the WIBA, IFBA and OPBF, going 25-8-1 with 10 KOs in over 14 years of competition. She made her ROAD FC debut appearance on the first all-female card ROAD FC XX by rematching Kang Jin-Hee, and surprisingly nailed takedowns to secure the unanimous decision from the judges.

Kim Hae-In (0-0-1, Ssabi MMA) is a top-ranked Taekwondo fighter and national Sanda champ who trains MMA under former ROAD FC Bantamweight Champion Lee Kil-Woo. At ROAD FC 033 she made her pro debut in MMA against sanda standout Lin Heqin, went the distance, but lost by majority draw. In her amateur days, she has a win over Raika’s former foe Kang Jin-Hee.

While this match is definitely boxing versus Taekwondo, Raika and Kim have both proved they are well-rounded in MMA so any outcome is possible.
