Maximo Blanco vs. Won Sik Park Added to Soul of Fight

Sengoku Raiden Championship promoter World Victory Road added four more fights on Friday to its "Soul of Fight" end of year event, bringing the total to 27 fights.

Sengoku's brightest prospect Maximo Blanco will face one of the toughest tests of his young career as he takes on the underrated Won Sik "Parky" Park. Blanco was originally set for a lightweight title fight but as his planned opponent, Kazunori Yokota, was unable to get past Brian Cobb at SRC 15 in October ended those plans. Park has been the victim of unfortunate circumstances over they past year as his debut against Kuniyoshi Hironaka at DREAM 12 in October 2009 was spoiled by an eye poke and his tune-up fight in Deep against Ryuki Ueyama was ruled a no contest after a disputed referee stoppage.

Former SRC featherweight champion Masanori Kanehara will return to action to take on DREAM representative Yoshiro Maeda. Maeda is coming off a solid but narrow victory over former DEEP featherweight champ Takafumi Otsuka while Kanehara will be looking for his first win since losing his belt to Marlon Sandro.

Also announced: Roxanne Modafferi will return to action for the first time since her Strikeforce women's welterweight championship loss to Sarah Kaufman to take on Strikeforce 135-pound women's tournament runner-up Hitomi "Girlfight Monster" Akano; Misaki Takimoto, who is best known for her four fights with retired great Miku Matsumoto, will face kickboxing convert Amy Davis; and Andrew Peck will step in for Ryuta Noji to face Fabiano Cyclone.
