DEEP JEWELS 20 took place on 9 June 2018 at Shinjyuku FACE in Tokyo.
Before the fight Emi Tomimatsu said that “I can hear the RED belt wants to move. I think it is the time.” in the promotion movie.
Of course she has high concern to the current atomweight champion Mina Kurobe.
The opponent, Jung Eun Park from Team Strong Wolf debut in 2015 at ROAD FC. Park fought with Emi Fujino and lost at her debut fight. Last December she fought with Mina Kurobe and lost by decision. The fight was almost all boxing and Park won by decision. Park was very good at setting the distance to the opponent at this fight like Kyoji Horiguchi.
KING Reina said that “There are NO opponent at her weight-class in Japan and so changed the weight-class to featherweight with reducing 10Kg. In the lighter division, Reina was faster and delivered heavier striking. For the opponent, Eun Ji Choi, it was her debut fight. KING Reina got quick win via rear-choke.
After the win KING Reina appealed to RIZIN CEO Sakakibara for the next fight and she got the next fight at RIZIN12 in Nagoya next August.
The third fight Nanaka Kawamura (in purple) had a fight as a professional fighter with Momoko Yamazaki (in blue costume) from The Outsider.
Kawamura is one member of the idol group “Kamen Jyoshi (Masked Girls)” so many her fans (mostly non-MMA fans) came to the arena and before staring the event Kamen Jyoshi had a mini concert in the ring. A remarkable phenomenon. Her opponent Yamazaki is famous for her sweet face and her naughty personality.
After Kawamura got her first win as a professional fighter, Kawamura also appealed to RIZIN, RIZIN CEO Sakakibara said she may not be ready, but he will keep a close eye. “We want to check your fights more to judge.”
