2/1 Pancrase Changing Tour 1 - First Fights Announced!

Monday 8 December 2008

Pancrase have announced the first 3 fights for their Changing Tour debut. ZST standout, Masanori Kanehara will be making his Pancrase debut against Kenji Arai. Arai had an ok 2008, and will be looking to improve in 2009. He starts the year ranked #3 and his goal would be to get the title.

Also added is the welterweight bout between Asaki Honda and Kousei Kubota. Honda went 0-2 (lost to the finalists in the welterweight tournament) in 2008, he will be looking to start 2009 off with a win! Kubota returns to Pancrase after 5 years fighting mainly in DEEP. He is an experienced competitor that seems to have been around much longer than his 31 years would suggest, he made his Pancrase debut in 1997. Also added is the middleweight fight between Ryuji Ohori and Takenori Sato.

Lets hope Pancrase is able to start 2009 on the same note they left 2008, the last few events have really been good!
