DEEP have announced the matchups for their opening round of the lightheavyweight tournament. The finals will be on April 17.
I think M'Pumbu should be the favorite going in, but I hope Noji does well here. He has a great fighting spirit and I hope he gets through to the finals.
Also announced is a fight between the former DEEP champion, Hidehiko Hasegawa and Taisuke Okuno.
