Regional Funabashi Bom Ba Ye 2015 festival will take place on May 9, 2015. DEEP will participate by holding a short MMA show during the event.

Heading up the card is Featherweight Champ Kazunori Yokota who will be taking on super striker Juri Ohara. Yokota is a Funabashi native and a massive DEEP draw. Ohara became a hot ticket in 2014 with turning around two losses with three back to back KOs. This would be a great match to see as both guys hit hard but are extremely different styles. Ohara will have a reach advantage, but Yokota is a bloodhound.

Toshinori Tsunemura, the most recent challenger for Takafumi Otsuka’s belt, will be facing Michito Abe. Tsunemura is a tough as nails Grabaca representative and Abe has been around the local scene a long time, so this will likely be a grinding grappling affair. Both men need wins and need a career resurgence so they’ll be putting on a good show.

JMMA stand out Emi Tomimatsu will also be on the card against a yet to be announced opponent. Tomimatsu always brings it, no matter the opponent.

The event will open up with regional music acts, a martial arts demonstration by Kyokushin Kaikan, and two or three pro wrestling matches. Then DEEP will present five MMA fights. Funabashi native Haruki Nakayama will also be featured on the card.
