Xiaomi ROAD FC 035: Kim Soo-Chul faces late stand in opponent Shimizu Shunichi

For immediate release:

1 December, 2016 – ROAD Fighting Championship announces that Kim Soo-Chul will indeed have a replacement for his match in Xiaomi ROAD FC 035. Japanese journeyman Shimizu Shunichi has agreed to step in on late notice to face Kim on 10 December in Seoul, South Korea.

Originally, Kim Soo-Chul was set to face Kim Min-Woo for the vacant ROAD FC Bantamweight title, however Min-Woo's minor surgery delayed the match until 2017. Scott Jorgensen was announced as the match up for Kim on Xiaomi ROAD FC 035. Unfortunately, Jorgensen injured his ankle during training camp and was forced to withdraw. 

With ten days notice before ROAD FC 035, Shimizu Shunichi has agreed to step in against Kim Soo-Chul. While Kim is regarded as one of Korea's current top fighters, Shimizu is not balking at the match as he has a wealth of experience backing him up. The Uruno Dojo product has a record of 30-16-11 in promotions that span the globe: from ZST, Sengoku and Pancrase in his native Japan, to fights in Lithuania and China, and a one-off in the UFC against former ROAD FC Bantamweight Champion Kang Kyung-Ho.

Kim Soo-Chul says even a last minute opponent won't keep him from delivering his best performance, and Shimizu promises to bring his A game for his first ROAD FC appearance.


As previously announced, Lee Eun-Su will now face Kuerbanjiang Tuluosibake. The match will be at a catchweight limit of 80 kgs.
