Carlos Índio made a bang in the Shooto Brazil promotion with his knockout win over André Chatuba capturing the organization’s South American title. Now the athlete will have a chance to snatch the Shooto World title against current champion Siyar Bahadurzada, a Dutch-Afghan fighter who knocked out Leandro Batata at Shooto Brazil 13, in a title match to be held in Brazil.
The Shooto Brazil promotion will hold its 17th installment this August 6 at the Hebraica Club in the Laranjeiras borough of Rio de Janeiro, and there will be two more title fights featured on the occasion.
Igor Chatubinha will face Luis Beição, current holder of the under 76 kg belt, in a rematch that promises to put the crowd in the traditional South Rio de Janeiro City club at the edge of their seats. In the under 65 kg division, Paulo Guerreiro and Johnny Eduardo will face off for the vacant South American title, in what promises to be a slug-fest.
Further fights on the card feature Vitor Miranda against Guto Inocente, Hernani Perpetuo against Junior Killer and Hacran Dias versus Cesário Di Dominicos.
