1/30 Pancrase Shining Tour 1

Thursday 3 January 2008

Pancrase have announced some of the fights, including what I believe will be the main event, for their first event of 2008. There should be another few fights added to the event, which will be held in Korakuen Hall.

Welterweight King of Pancrase fight
Katsuya Inoue 15-5-2 vs. 19-7-9 Satoru Kitaoka

Shinsuke Shoji 4-3-1 vs. 7-3-2 Yuichi Ikari
Daisuke Hanazawa13 7-9-4 vs. 5-10-2 Wataru Takahashi
Yuki Yamasawa 1-4-0 vs. 3-0-0 Seiya Kawahara

Also participating:
WINDY Tomomi 9-8-0, she had sit out the 2007 season due to a broke leg suffered against Rosi Sexton in February 2007. This will be her return to the ring, so lets wish her a better 2008 and good luck no matter who the opponent turns out to be.

There has been mention of a Lightweight tournament staring in this event. To be honest, I am a bit confused about what it says on their we-site.

In Japanese it says:
3.26(水)後楽園ホール大会の2興行で、ライト級新階級(70.3kg未満)のランカー4名による、初代ライト級王者決定トーナメントを開催致します。開催に伴い、初代ケージフォース ライト級王者・ウマハノフ・アルトゥール選手(SKアブソリュート・ロシア/2位)の参戦が決定しております。

Which translates to:
Jan. 30th(Wed.), Mar. 26th(Wed.) 2 tournaments at Korakuen Hall. the first tournament to decide the lightweight champion with the new lightweight class (less than 70.3 kg) four ranked fighters. Accordingly, the first Cage-Force lightweight champion Arthur Oumakhanov (SK absolute Russia / 2nd place ranked?) has decided to join the tournament.

Was there any mention of the LW tournament starting at this event?

Hi Marc,

To be honest, I am a bit confused about that myself. I have added a translation of what it says on their web-site.

I think there will be a sort of qualifying round in January.
