8/23 DEEP 43 Impact - 2 Title Fights Announced

Wednesday 1 July 2009

DEEP have announced the first couple of fights for DEEP 43, and it will be another awesome card! Already announced are 2 title fights in the most competitive DEEP divisions, bantam- and featherweight.

Both these divisions have world class champions, DREAM veteran Masakazu Imanari is the bantamweight champion and will take on Tomohiko Hori. Imanari is the favorite here, but Hori should not be taken lightly and Imanari is predictable.

The featherweight champion is the UFC and Pride veteran Dokonjonosuke Mishima, he is taking on DREAM veteran, the very talented Takafumi Otsuka. Mishima is a top fighter and defeated Imanari to claim the DEEP featherweight title. This will be a very good fight, both these fighters are very tough and fight with a lot of heart.

Also announced for the event is the return of the former DEEP middleweight champion, Ryo Chonan. He is returning from his short spell in the UFC and I am guessing a title fight with the new champion Riki Fukuda will be in the cards down the line. No opponent for DEEP 43 is announced yet.

DEEP Bantamweight Title Fight:

Masakazu Imanari (champion) 16-7-1 vs. 10-4-3 Tomohiko Hori

DEEP Featherweight Title Fight:
Dokonjonosuke Mishima (champion) 19-6-2 vs. 8-4-1 Takafumi Otsuka

Ryo Chonan 15-10-0
