KIM NAE-CHUL RETURNS TO FACE HWANG IN-SU

For immediate release, January 15, 2018 - ROAD Fighting Championship announces another match for Xiaomi ROAD FC 046 at the Jangchung Arena in Seoul, South Korea on March 10, 2018. Former Middleweight contender Kim Nae-Chul returns to face hot prospect Hwang In-Su.

Kim Nae-Chul vs Hwang In-Su

Kim Nae-Chul (6-4, West Gym/Team Posse) has been in ROAD FC since ROAD FC 007 back in 2012. He has never been finished, delivered 3 KO victories including one over Ryuta Noji, and had a Fight of the Year with Park Jung-Kyo at ROAD FC 033. At the beginning of 2017, Kim fought Riki Fukuda in the Middleweight title contender eliminator, and while he lost on the scorecards, his performance was impressively thrilling. Kim is a precise and powerful striker with a huge gas tank that makes him the ultimate threat to his next opponent.

Hwang In-Su (3-0, Team MAD) debuted in MMA in 2017 with three knockouts in a row, his last one being over the much more experienced Park Jung-Kyo in just 11 seconds. He was a contender for 2017 Rookie of the Year, and is seen as the hottest Middleweight prospect in Korea right now. Hwang is an aggressive striker who swarms, overpowers, and looks to finish his opponents with punches.

Kim Nae-Chul is looking to get back into title contention, and Hwang In-Su is definitely making the ROAD FC Middleweight division more interesting. Expect fireworks when these two fast and accurate strikers engage!
