PostSubject: The FIGHT! roster grows   Sun Apr 19, 2009 12:52 pm

The newly announced California based MMA promotion backed by telecoms millionaire Jake Morgan, FIGHT!, today released initial details of it's roster members. These included some familiar faces from FURY PRO, an organisation backed by Morgan several years ago.

Most excitingly, FIGHT! revealed that it had come to a five fight agreement with Keijiro Maeda. the twenty-eight year old Judo and Jujitsu practitioner is a huge star in his native Japan, largely due to his direct blood relation to one of mixed martial arts founding fathers, Mitsuya Maeda. Maeda brings an impressive record of 14-4-1 with most wins by way of submission.

Another fighter from the Orient making the move to North America will be Light Heavyweight Takigawa Shinsaku [19-7-0], who fans may remember from his time in FURY PRO where he became the Light Heavyweight Title Holder. Shinsaku is a crowd pleaser, who, despite excellent ground skills likes nothing more than to stand and bang.

Another light heavyweight joining the FIGHT! ranks is the wild Hawaiian, Ikaika Boswick [9-6-3]. Boswick always makes for exciting fights with his explosive stand up and willingness to trade.

Another coup for FIGHT! will be the arrival of Russian Heavyweight, Ivan 'The Terrible' Vyacheslav [12-1-0] who boasts one of the toughest chins in the game. A former FURY PRO Heavyweight Champion, Vyacheslav is riding a seven fight win streak.

Other signees include Light Heavyweights Graziano Sanchez [7-2-0], Scott Jerald [4-0-0], Grant Prosser [5-2-0] and Middleweight Richie Eamon.

More signings are set to be confirmed later this week.
