Ramona Pascual vs. Marina Kumagai booked for ROAD FC 47 in Beijing


A women’s bantamweight bout has been added to ROAD FC 47, set for the Cadillac Arena in Beijing on 12 May.

Returning for her second ROAD appearance is Ramona Pascual (3-2), a Hong Kong-based grappler and striker who made her debut promotional debut at ROAD FC 45 XX with a unanimous decision win over Jin Seo-Woo.

The Phuket Top Team-trained Pascual is now set to face Japanese Muay Thai fighter Marina Kumagai, who makes her debut with ROAD after a career that spans Japan’s J-Network and M-One, where she amassed a professional record of 4-4 in Muay Thai and kick boxing.
