Over the last 2 days, Shooto and Shootboxing held their two co-promotional events, with a rematch between Andy Souwer and Toby Imada, as well as Shootboxing vs MMA fights between Hiroki Shishido and “Lion” Takeshi Inoue, as well as Hiroaki Suzuki and “Wicky” Akiyo Nishiura headlining the Shootboxing card, with a Flyweight title fight between reigning champion Junji Ikoma and Mikihito Yamagami headlining the MMA card.

In the main event of today’s Shootboxing card, 2-time K-1 MAX champion and 3-time S-Cup champion Andy Souwer avenged a massive upset loss to MMA fighter Toby Imada from last year’s S-Cup semifinals by unanimous decision on scores of 30-24 and 30-25(x2). I believe Souwer was able to score downs in rounds 1 and 2 while Imada was unable to score any throws on Souwer, which was the key to Imada’s victory last November. The win is nice for Souwer who recently fell in the semifinals of the It’s Showtime Fast and Furious tournament to Artur Kyshenko. Souwer doesn’t currently have any fights set, though he could be an option for Dream’s New Year’s Eve event. For Imada, a rematch with Hiroki Shishido or an MMA fight in Bellator are options.
