DEEP Jewels 5 takes place on August 8, 2014 and will be live streamed from Tokyo. Emi Tomimatsu rematches Mizuki Inoue for the LW title, Ayaka Hamasaki drops to face Naho Sugiyama.
Tomimatsu went up against hot prospect Inoue for the Lightweight belt, and while Inoue submitted her in the third, Tomimatsu was awarded the interim title on a technicality – because Inoue missed weight. The rematch between them will set the record straight on who is truly top of the division.
Hamasaki was the first Jewels Lightweight Champion, She went on to face Claudia Gadelha in the Invicta Strawweight Championship. After that, Hamasaki took a break to recover from injury, but on DEEP Jewels 5 she will return to the ring. Now she will drop a division to take on “Sugi Rock”, who was the first Jewels Featherweight Champion. Hamasaki fought in the inaugural Invicta Strawweight Championship, and Sugiyama fought for Invicta’s first Atomweight Championship.
Sugiyama “Sugi Rock” was the first Jewels Featherweight Champion. She competed against Jessica Penne for Invicta’s first Atomweight Championhip. Putting two losses behind her – one to rising Celine Haga and top ranked Ham Seo-Hee – Sugi Rock claimed back to back wins older the new DEEP banner.
Since being unsuccessful in her title bid with Takayo Hashi, Shizuka Sugiyama was expected to follow Ayaka Hamasaki’s path in dropping a weight division to face Song Hyo-Kyung at strawweight. Song was already scheduled to fight in ROAD FC on July 26 against Kimura Hazuki – a bout she won in resounding fashion – and subsequent injury pulled fed from the DEEP Jewels bout.
