MMA's Inoue returns to ring
Former Super Brawl (Icon Sport) middleweight champion Egan Inoue will return to the ring after a four-and-a half-year absence from the sport of mixed martial arts.
Inoue signed an exclusive Hawaii contract with X-1 World Events and will headline its May 16 show entitled Legends at Blaisdell Arena.
The card will also feature Niko Vitale, Ray Cooper and Marcelo Tigre.
"I just want to see where I am at," the 42-year-old Inoue said. "I want to end my career on my own terms with a win."
Inoue hasn't fought since September 2003 when he lost to Jason "Mayhem" Miller after suffering an injury to his ribs during the fight.
