DEEP Cage Impact took place at Korakuen Hall in Tokyo, Japan on June 15th. Choi DooHoo extends to 9 straight wins, Kikuno, Sakurai also victorious.
A superfight between Choi DooHo and Shoji Maruyama brought the house down – and almost each other with it – as the two traded punches for the better part of two rounds. Choi was rocked early in both rounds but came back to brawl in fashion. A scramble on the ground saw Choi reversed and Shoji looking to capitalize standing over him, but an upkick changed the situation. Choi got up and made quick work of his opponent. Choi told MFight after the match that he was still recovering from a left shoulder injury and felt it compromised his game plan.
Ryuta Sakurai got the better of Sakuragi Yuji who wanted to stand and trade with him. Sakurai’s pace was too much and the assault by fists and a flying knee crumpled Yuji in his corner in about one minute.
Kikuno Kazunori also made it a quick night by starting the trend of right hook finishes when he trounced Jutaro Nakao with one, and kept it to a short and cool minute. DEEP Featherweight Champion Kazunori Yokota easily handled newcomer Kim OonKyeom, submitting him in the first round. Kim JongWang avenged his loss to Seigo Mizuguchi with an astounding 37 second TKO.
While the rest of the night was full of quick KOs, neither Hirada Yoshiki nor Koichi Ishizuka claimed the 300,000Yen 30 second KO prize in their match. Ishizuka took satisfaction in the form of a win over Yoshiki by RNC in the first.
