4/5 Cage Force 06 - The Card is Final

Friday 4 April 2008

After a lot of changes, the Cage Force card is now final. All the fighters made weight today. The bad news is that they were unable to find an opponent for Antonio Carvalho. Should still be a very good event though.

Still, lots of fights to look forward to. Personally, I really look forward to seing James Doolan and Paul McVeigh, who has made the trip over from Europe. They are also the only non-Japanese on the card now. Just so its said, Paul McVeigh is fighting 39 year old Masahiro Oishi who's nickname is Jackal! Just thought Fightlinker fans would like to know that. I am a Fightlinker fan, but for this one I am cheering for Paul McVeigh.

Of course, we can't forget about the title fight personally, I think Hirota will take it.

Ryota is a bit of an unknown and I really look forward to see what he can do in this tournament. Other fighters to look for: Tetsuya Suzuki, Yoshihiro Koyama and Wataru Miki. Just to mention a few.

Also just to mention it, Nobuhiro Tsurumaki is 0-9 this is his chance to improve on his record or will it be an even 10.

Lightweight Title fight:
12. Tomonari Kanomata 11-2-3 vs. 8-2-0 Mizuto Hirota
