8/8 Pancrase Neo-Blood Finals

Thursday 2 July 2009

Pancrase have announced another 6 fights for the next Changing Tour event, this event will also be the Neo-Blood finals.

Added is one of Pancrase's biggest stars, Yuki Kondo, who will be taking on debutant (as far as I know) Kim Ki-Beom. Yuki Kondo is a fighter that has seen it all and fought at all levels in his very long career, he will draw a crowd to watch this fight. Kondo is coming off a loss to Yuki Sasaki in Sengoku and he will be looking to bounce back here.

Also added is a very interesting match-up betweeen Tashiro "Akai" Nishiuchi and Cage Warriors veteran Tomonari Kanomata.

In addition to the Neo-Blood finals, there are 2 title fights on this card as well. Sengoku training fighter, Maximo Blanco gets a shot at the Pancrase lightweight title against the experienced champion, Katsuya Inoue. It will be war, and if he contains his excitement, I think Blanco will outpower his opponent.

Welter: Masahiro Toryu 6-4-4 vs. 24-30-11 Kosei Kubota
