12/10 DEEP 39 - Fights Added

Tuesday 25 November 2008

Shoji Maruyama, the former Lightweight King of Pancrase will be fighting AACC's Takafumi Otsuka in what should be a very interesting fight. Shoji had a busy first half of 2008, with 3 fights in 5 months. He won the Pancrase Lightweight title agaist Artur Oumakhanov with a kick to the head. He then decided to vacate the title to move down a weight class. His last fight was in DREAM 3, a decision loss to Yamazaki.

Shoji will be facing Takafumi Otsuka who is a very tough fighter. He is the sort of fighter that never gives up and this should be a good fight between 2 talented fighters.

Also added is the Heavyweight fight between Inoue and Tazawa.

It is shaping up to be a good card again for DEEP. The event is being held in Korakuen Hall.

Shoji Maruyama 6-3-1 vs. 7-3-1 Takafumi Otsuka
Shunsuke Inoue 4-3-0 vs. 3-0-0 Kazuhisa Tazawa

they seem to loose fighters all the time and even with that, they always pull it of and made some good shows, in another theme, do you know any possibilities for the march feather weight gp of sengoku?

They are doing great with this card. I can't wait to see Shoji-Otsuka.

DEEP has improved this year, I thought last year was a bit average. They seem to be cooperating with Dream and that should give them access to a lot of talent. Something similar to what we are seeing with Pancrase and Sengoku.

Sengoku featherweight tournament... I cant mention a single Sengoku featherweight... I would not be surprised if they put something up to counter DREAM though.
