 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.

    mad that Pancrase used to be neck and neck with the UFC for #1 world promotion.

    Imagine if they’d won that war?

      They very well could’ve won had Ken beaten Royce at UFC 1
