DEEP JEWELS 4 slates the inaugural Bantamweight title between Sugiyama and Hashi



DEEP JEWELS 4 takes places place on May 18, 2014 and a title fight will take center stage. The inaugural Bantamweight belt will be contested for by Takayo Hashi and Shizuka Sugiyama.

DEEP now being the promoter of JEWELS has catapulted the promotion into heavy action. With four events slated within a nine-month period, the benefits can already be seen. The Strawweight tournament yielded a winner in Emi Tomimatsu, and Ham Seo-Hee has successfully defended her Atomweight belt brought over from JEWELS.

Shigeru Saeki, DEEP boss, announced that the standout Zendokai fighter Shizuka Sugiyama will face women’s MMA pioneer Takayo Hashi for the first ever Bantamweight Championship. Sugiyama is a karateka with heavy hands that produce KOs, while Hashi is a tough grinder. Both have recently found a draw against boxer-turned-MMAer Kim Ji-Yeon.
