DEEP 91 Impact took place on 8 September the New Pier-Hall in Tokyo.
In the main fight DEEP bantamweight champion and RIZIN fighter Otsuka took the challenge of Rikuto Shirakawa, the former OUTSIDER fighter and won over Koichi Ishitsuka and Toshiaki Kitada. He has enough record to challenge Otsuka.
The fight ended suddenly… Shirakawa threw punches and tackled to Otsuka and Otsuka caught it. After that Shirakawa appealed his relocation of his shoulder joint.
“I knew Shirakawa is strong, so I trained hard for this fight,” Otsuka said.
“I want to fight again with him. RIZIN named Four bantamweight kings without my permission. Don’t forget me. I will beat all of them.”
Otsuka was, in fact, referring to Ishiwatari, Sasaki, Motoya and Ogikubo.
The semifinal fight young and future stars Yokoyama from Krazy Bee and Ushiku from K-Clann collided. Though Yokoyama threw solid punches and low kicks, Ushiku held the pace both standing and on the ground. He took the fight by decision.
