Shinya Aoki to Challenge Kotetsu Boku for Title at One FC 8

One FC finally gets to make the lightweight match-up that it has been targeting since signing Dream lightweight champion Shinya Aoki to be a centerpiece for the promotion.

Aoki will step back in the cage for One FC to square off with the promotion’s lightweight champion, Kotetsu Boku, on April 5 when they return to Singapore Indoor Stadium for One FC 8. One FC officials confirmed the bout on Wednesday.

Aoki (31-6) a longtime staple of the Asian mixed martial arts scene, made his One FC debut last October with a quick submission victory over Arnaud Lepont. It has been no secret that he was on the short track to a title shot, considering his massive resume in Japan and name value in the Asian market.

Boku (20-7-2) won his belt by defeating Zorobabel Moreira at the same One FC 6 event where Aoki defeated Lepont.

Boku made his name in Japan with a lengthy tenure fighting for the venerable Shooto organization.
