|Queen of the Ring|
For the 2nd time in as many fights, Rena's opponent has been changed at the last second. Her new opponent is Kim Yuri and the reason for the change is unknown. Kim Yuri is a Korean Women's Muay Thai Champion, with a record of 6-4 as of June 2013. This will not be her first time fighting under Shoot Boxing rules as she faced off against Ai Takahashi last June, losing via front choke in the 1st. It is tough to say how much Yuri has improved since her loss, but it seems safe to say that the 21 year old will most likely be a fish out of water when she is in the ring with Rena. It will be interesting to hear what happened to the previous opponent, a match that should be remade if possible.
