A product of Team MAD, Hwang (4-0) has so far remained undefeated in his pro-MMA career, but was pulled from a fight with Yang Hae-Jun last July due to injury.
His opponent Choi (3-3) returns after an acrobatic first round TKO loss to Michel Pereira on the Road FC 51 XX card last December.
Bantamweights Yoo Jae-Nam (6-8) and Kim Tae-Gyun (2-4) will meet in an effort to climb back into the rankings.
Yoo recently won got revenge victory by choke out over Han Yi-Moon to get himself out of a rut.
Kim defeated hot Chinese prospect Wang Deyu, but then lost to newcomer Yuki Ito. Yoo is hoping to surge back into his former prospect glory while Kim wants to redeem his recent loss, so this should be a hotly contested battle for pride.
Young Guns 43
A women’s atomweight match between former title challenger Park Jeong-Eun (4-6) and Shim Yu-Ri (5-2) will be the main event for the Young Guns 43 preliminary card.
Park has been fighting at the very top of the division in ROAD FC, taking both ROAD FC champion Ham Seo-Hee and DEEP stand out Tomo Maesawa to decisions last year.
Shim is on a three-fight win streak with very strong displays of her sanda, Muay Thai and Taekwondo.
At featherweight, Muay Thai champion Oh Du-Seok (1-4) will take on “Fearless Guys” TV show contestant Park Chan-Soo (1-0).
Oh is known for his striking acumen and Park’s own amateur championship kickboxing skills are going to match well and make this a definite stand up war.
As previously announced, the main event of ROAD FC 54 will see middleweight champion La In-Jae take on challenger Yang Hae-Jun in his first title defence.
La will again be tested by the power of deep experience that challenger Yang has, however La wants to prove to the world that he’s no longer a prospect, but a champion.
Next up for the promotion is ROAD FC 53 on 18 May with the very first MMA event on the resort island of Jeju, South Korea.
The main event will be the long-anticipated lightweight championship defense by Kwon A-Sol as he takes on $1 Million Tournament winner Mansour Barnaoui.
The co-main event will be the return of young Chinese heavyweight standout Aorigele against kickboxing legend Jérôme Le Banner.
