2/1 Pancrase Changing Tour 1 - Fights Announced!

Thursday, 8 January 2009

Pancrase was IMO one of the most improved promotions last year. They will hold their first event of 2009 February 1 in Differ Ariake and they are looking to continue their momentum.

Pancrase have confirmed an opponent for their veteran Takafumi Ito. Ito has fought every year (except 2000) since his Pancrase debut 14 (!) years ago, and all except 2 of his 71 fights have been in Pancrase. This time he is taking on a new comer in "AB", last year's Neo-Blood tournament finalist. "AB" has had a very hard Pancrase career so far, being fed to some of the best talent around, so don't pay too much attention to his record. I really hope he gets to show something in this fight.

Feather: Masaya Takita "J-Taro" 9-10-2 vs. 19-4-0 Jameel "The Sargent" Massouh
Fly: Takuya Eizumi 3-1-0 vs. 3-4-0 Tokuaki Ninomiya
Welter: Shingo Suzuki 1-0-0 vs. 5-3-0 "Strasser" Kiichi Kunimoto
Light: Takafumi Ito 34-27-10 vs. 0-2-0 Hiroki "AB" Aoki

Previously Announced:
Feather: Kenji Arai 13-12-2 vs. 10-5-5 Masanori Kanehara

Middle: Ryuji Ohori 3-3-0 vs. 7-5-4 Takenori Sato
