4/16 DEEP 41 - Fights Added

Wednesday 1 April 2009

DEEP have announced 3 more fights for their DEEP 41 card, and the card should be close to final now.

The most interesting addition is the fight between Toshiaki Kitada and Joe Taimanglo. Taimanglo is following the trend of exchanges between Japanese organizations and PXC, the Guam based organization.

Also added is Kenji Nagai to face Hiromitsu Kanehara and Crazy Hiru to face Tomoya Miyashita.

Crazy Hiru is a fighter I know from Shoot Boxing and it will be interesting to see how he does in DEEP. I am not sure that this is his MMA debut, as Crazy Hiru is obviously not his real name...

Hiromitsu Kanehara 16-22-1 vs. 5-7-2 Kenji Nagai
Toshiaki Kitada 7-4-2 vs. 5-3-0 Joe Taimanglo
Tomoya Miyashita 9-5-5 vs. Crazy Hiru

Previously Announced:
Lightweight Title Fight:
Katsunori Kikuno 10-1-1 vs. 7-1-0 Koichiro Matsumoto

Miku Matsumoto vs. 5-2-0 Nicdali "The Nightqueen" Calanic
Ryuki Ueyama 9-11-4 vs. 24-29-10 Kousei Kubota
Yuji Sakurai 9-14-1 vs. 2-6-1 Minoru Kato
Seigo Mizuguchi 4-4-0 vs. 2-3-0 Waka Arash
Kazuyuki Miyata 5-7-0 vs. 2-5-0 Jae Hyun So

I'm currently in Tokyo and would love to go see this - how do I get tickets?

Go to Korakuen Hall, on the 5th floor (I think it is), they are selling tickets. Take a right out the elevator.

Korakuen Hall is in the "Blue building" in the Tokyo dome area. Its in the same building as "Vicky's". You might be too late to buy it there, but in that case they will sell tickets on the day. Thats on the ground floor in the same building, starting 1-2 hours before the event.

Say hi to the Australian guy in Miyata's corner.
