9/12 Shoot Boxing - RESULTS

Friday 12 September 2008

Here are the results from the Shoot Boxing event today. It was AWESOME! Even if 2 of the 3 fighters I was looking forward to watching lost. This is the first time I can remeber that the Korakuen Hall was packed (at the events I have been to), and the value was very good.

As for the fights, I like watching this kind of fights, but I prefer that fighters get to show their ground game though. Value for money, this is the show to go to though! Shoot Boxing is gaining popularity, and I can see why... Good fights, good show and cheap tickets.

11. Main Event: 70Kg S-Cup Rule 5x3min (Unlimited Extention)
Hiroki Shishido Def. Kenji Kanei by Decision 3-0

10. Expert Rule 3x3min (Unlimited Extention)
Kenichi Ogata Def. Jason Scerri by TKO Round 3 0:56
I was looking forward to seeing the Australian Jason Scerri in this one. He was very entertaining, and would have won R1 IMO, but was knocked down in the last seconds. In the end, I think he lost because he was trying to put on a show. I hope the organizers realize that and invite him back! A fun fight to watch, but Ogata was too good in the end.

9. SB Japan Super-Bantam 5x3min (Unlimited Extention)
Noriyuki Enari Def. Akito Sakimura (after 2 ext. rounds) by decision 3-0

8. Expert Class Rule 3x3min 60kg (Unlimited Extention)
Takeshi Ishikawa Def. Crazy Hill by decision 3-0

7. 58kg 3min x 3 (unlimited extention)
Pajunsuk Por. Pramuk Def. Naguranchun Masa M16 by TKO Round 1 2:49 (3 downs)
Look out for Pajunsuk, very good performance today!

6. Expert Class Rule 3x3min 72kg (Unlimited Extention)
Takaaki Umeno Def. Tsuyoshi Torii by KO Round 2 2:37
Kiyoshi Tamura was in Torii's corner, but it didnt help tonight, as Umeno was much better in this form of fighting.

5. Freshman Class Rule 60kg 3x3min (2 rounds extention)
Kouya Shimada Def. Takanori Fujiwara by decision 3-0

4. Starting Class Rule 51kg 3x2min (1 round extention)
Misato Tomita Def. Megumi Fuji by decision 2-0
I was really looking forward to seeing Mega-Megu in this. It showed that this is not her type of event, but she will get better. In the end, Tomita was better and more experienced at Shoot Boxing. I would pay to watch Megumi fight any day though, she will be back!

3. Starting Class Rule 55kg 3x2min (1 round extention)
Kazuyuki Fushimi Def. Hideo Iwasaki by KO Round 1 1:44

2. Starting Class Rule 65kg 3x2min (1 round extention)
Hiroaki Suzuki Def. Yoshiki Harada by decision 3-0
A very entertaining fight.

1. Starting Class Rule 55kg 3x2min (1 round extention)
Toyochika Osawa Def. Tomonori Suzuki by decision 3-0
