With the 2012 Girls S-Cup just two weeks away, Shootboxing has almost finished rounding out the tournament field, adding four more competitors, leaving just one open spot remaining.

The four participants added include Valkyrie Featherweight champ VV.Mei, WMC World Flyweight champ Namtam Por. Muangpet from Thailand, WKF and ISKA Flyweight champion Olena Ovchynnikova from Ukraine and WPKL Flyweight champion Lorena Klijn from the Netherlands. As stated, Shootboxing chairman Caesar Takeshi wanted to bring in foreign talent and with just one spot open and three Japanese fighters already in the field, I assume he will reach out abroad to find the final competitor. My vote would be for American MMA fighter Jessica Penne who holds a win over 2-time S-Cup champ Rena. Of these four, VV.Mei is the only one to have competed under Shootboxing rules, taking part in the past two Girls S-Cups, making it to the finals in 2009 and the semifinals in 2010, losing to Rena and Ai Takahashi, respectively. These four join the previously announced Rena, Erika Kamimura and Seo Hee Ham and although this tournament lacks Shootboxing champion Ai Takahashi and buzz around a single competitor like Su Jeong Lim in 2009 and Hisae Watanabe in 2010, the possibility of rematches between Rena, Kamimura, Ham and Mei provides excitement of its own in what is sure to be a memorable tournament.
