2/4 JEWELS 2 - First Fights Announced

Monday 19 January 2009

Jewels have announced the first fights for their 2nd event, called 2nd ring. This event will be held in Shinjuku Face, and of course it will be an all female lineup.

The question I have is really: What happened to the competition (Valkyrie)? Roxanne Modafferi was one of the fighters on the original Valkyrie card and she has written a post for Fightlinker on the topic, you can read that here.

To me, it has been very quiet from the Valkyrie side... On their blog there is nothing since new year. We just have to wait and see, I guess.

Meanwhile, for those of us who are missing Smack Girl, Jewels will be putting on a card that resemble what you would have been abel to see with Smack Girl.

The first fight is a re-match of a fight that did happen in Smack Girl, that was almost 2 years ago and Hiroko got a decision win over Michiko Takeda. Takeda has not fought since that split decision loss, while Hiroko has had 3 fights.

Also added are 2 veterans, Misaki Takimoto and Yasuko Tamada will square off in what should be in interesting fight between to very experienced female fighters.

In terms of talent, Jewels has called back to debutants from the first event. Both Shizuka Sugiyama and Shiho won their fights on Jewels 1, this time they will face eachother.

Open: Hiroko 5-1-0 vs. 3-2-1 Michiko Takeda
48kg: Misaki Takimoto 9-9-4 vs. 8-4-3 Yasuko Tamada
52kg: Masako Yoshida 14-14-5 vs. 0-1-0 Shinsaki Ozawa
60kg: Shizuka Sugiyama 1-0-0 vs. 1-0-0 Shiho

Saori Ishioka 6-3-0
Mayumi "Benkei" Aoki 2-6-0
