Perhaps the most promising prospect in all Pancrase, Jon Shores(9-0) has been added to the upcoming March 11th Pancrase Progress Tour 3 show.
Shores will take on Takada Dojo’s Masakazu Takafuji(7-5), who is coming off a viscous 52 second soccer kick KO of Masaki Yanagisawa back in December.
As you would expect from a fighter coming out of Rodeo Style gym, Shores has powerful wrestling and strong submissions but also possesses violent KO power. While Takafuji brings solid wrestling and Judo backed up by a ton of toughness.
This will be one to keep an eye on as a 9-0 fighter of Shores caliber isn’t very common in JMMA these days and Takafuji is just crazy enough to score the upset.
