DEEP Jewels 6 takes place on November 3, 2014 in Tokyo, Japan. Featherweight Champion Ham Seo-Hee defends her title against Saori Ishioka.
Champion Ham faces Ishioka in a rubber match from their 6 year trilogy which started in SmackGirl and hit the sophomore outing at DEEP 52 Impact. In both matches Ham was the winner by Unanimous Decision. Since then, Ishioka had a 2-year break to have a baby, with wins on either side by finishes – both arm bars – over Tomomi Sunaba in Pancrase and Satomi “Sarami” Takano at DEEP Jewels 4.
With a strong striking seen in both fighters – Ham in kick boxing and Ishioka in karate – plus some grappling and judo thrown in, both women have matured and should make this an exciting cap to a trilogy. However, Ham Seo-Hee at #3 in the world at her weight, likely holds onto the DEEP title a little longer before taking a shot at the big leagues.

Emi Fujino and Miura Ayaka will meet to decide a Lightweight Championship contender. Sugiyama is back to take on Yurika Nakakura. “Amiba” versus Tomo Maesawa promises to be a fun scrap.
