Saya Ito to face Momi

Saya Ito
An interesting fight has been put together on the Japanese Muay Thai scene as Saya Ito will be stepping into the ring with Momi on July 13th. Having risen to a level of recognition during her amateur career going 78-12-3, this will be Ito's 2nd professional fight. She made her debut in April and won via decision. Her opponent, Momi Furuta, is a tough fighter who has fought some of the best in Japan. Momi, who holds a record of 20-8-5, has defeated Mio and Chiharu and lost to Erika Kamimura and Little Tiger. For only her 2nd professional fight Momi should be a good test to gauge the skill level of Saya Ito.

Miri Sasaki
Also on the card is Ito's teammate Miri Sasaki. Her opponent has yet to be announced. I wasn't able to find any sort of professional record for Sasaki and I believe she has an amateur record of 7-5. Ito and Sasaki's gym, Shobukai seems to be training a numer of elite females as it looks like Shiho Van Hoose also did some training there while she was in Japan.

These fights will be for Muaylok 2014: 2nd on July 13th
