Michael Page to Face Shinsho Anzai in Catchweight Bout at Bellator Japan on Dec. 28

By Tristen Critchfield Dec 7, 2019


Flamboyant striker Michael Page will return to action one more time before the conclusion of 2019 when he faces Shinsho Anzai at Bellator 237 in Japan.

The California-based promotion announced the booking via social media. Page vs. Anzai will be contested at 173-pound catchweight. Bellator 237 takes place at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan, on Dec. 28 and is headlined by a heavyweight duel between Fedor Emelianenko and Quinton Jackson.

Page’s only defeat in 17 professional outings came via second-round knockout against Douglas Lima in Bellator’s welterweight grand prix on May 11. He has since rebounded to post back-to-back KO triumphs over Richard Kiely and Giovanni Melillo. The 32-year-old Englishman has finished 13 of his 16 career wins inside the distance.

A veteran of the UFC and Pancrase promotions, Anzai is coming off a technical decision victory over Yoichiro Sato at Deep 91 Impact on Sept. 8. The 34-year-old Tokyo native owns an 11-3 professional mark that includes seven triumphs by KO or TKO.
