Former Road FC bantamweight champion ‘Korean Moai’ Kim Min-woo (29, Moai Gym) will stand on the professional stage after 3 years and 3 months.
Kim Min-woo, who will compete in the featherweight match of ‘Black Combat 5: Song of the Sword’ held at the Suwon Convention Center in Gyeonggi-do on the 4th, passed the weigh-in at 65.95kg at 11:00 am on the 3rd, the day before the match, and was ready to sortie.
Kim Min-woo was unable to compete due to an abnormality in his body during the weight loss process of the semi-finals of ‘Road to UFC’ in October of last year. This is because his physique has grown and his muscles have increased.
Leaving behind his painful memories, the path Kim Min-woo boldly chose was to adjust his weight class to featherweight. Kim Min-woo, who decided to make a fresh start at Black Combat, came down the scale with a bright expression after losing relatively less weight than during his bantamweight days.
On the other hand, his opponent Daisuke Nakamura (42, Japan) failed to pass the first weigh-in with 66.95kg. In the second weigh-in, he failed to drop 300g and was judged to be a weigh-in failure. He is deducted 1 point per round and 3 points in total in the match. 스포츠토토
‘Black Combat 5: Song of the Sword’ is a 5v5 team match between Korea’s Black Combat and Japan’s DEEP. Atomweight, bantamweight, featherweight, lightweight, and unrestricted weights compete against each other with national and collective pride.
Kim “Prince” Jong-hoon (31, Moai Jim), the older brother who was dedicated to supporting Kim Min-woo, climbs into the cage after 8 years and 6 months. He passed his weigh-in at 61.25 kg and is currently recovering.
He is eager to win overwhelmingly against his opponent Seigo Yamamoto (27, Japan), who finished the weigh-in with 61.80kg.
Brothers Kim Jong-hoon and Kim Min-woo are planning to head for a bigger stage using this joint participation as a stepping stone. On Media Day on the 28th of last month, Kim Min-woo demanded, “If the two of us win by first kill, join us with the Asakura brothers of Japan.” Asakura Mikuru and Asakura Kai are star fighters representing Japan. He is currently active in Raijin in Japan.
