    4.13王者ナグランチューン・マーサが修斗の黒船マモルと激突!

    4 月13日(金)後楽園ホールにて開催される2012年シリーズ第2戦『SHOOT BOXING2012~Road to S-cup~act.2』に修斗世界2冠王マモルが連続参戦!これをSB日本フェザー級王者ナグランチューン・マーサM16が迎え撃つことが決定!!
    マ モルはSB初参戦で、当時日本スーパーバンタム級暫定王者だった今井教行(当時=えなりのりゆき)を撃破。その後も、現1位・藤本昌大や同級2位・伏見和 之ら軽量…級 トップファイターをことごとく打ち破ってきた、SBにとってはまさに黒船的存在。マモル自身が「トップランカーにはもうほとんど勝ってますし、そろそろ SBのベルトが欲しいですね」とコメントしているように、タイトル戦もいよいよ現実味を帯びてきている総合格闘技界からの最強の刺客。
    この マモルの快進撃に「ストップ・ザ・マモル」を掲げ、名乗りを上げたマーサは、現在破竹の7連勝をマークしているSB軽量級不動の王者。しかし、実はこ のマーサも王者になる以前の2009年6月にマモルに手痛い敗北を喫しており、今回はSBの威信と自身のプライドをかけたリベンジ戦となる。
    マモルが勝ってタイトル戦への切符を手にするのか!?それともマーサが黒船の進撃をストップするのか!?プライドをかけた両者の闘いに注目だ!
