Winner at May 24 DEEP show to get Lightweight Title shot
DEEP has added a womens match to their May 24 Shinjuku FACE show. It will be Misaki Takimoto vs Naoko Ohmuro. Takimoto's record is 7-8-4 and Ohmuto's record is 8-6-2. But the interesting thing is these two fought to a draw on the Nov. 11 GCM-Cage Force show. And the winner of this match gets a shot at the DEEP Lightweight Championsip currently held by MIKU. That match will be in August. Also, MIKU will be on DEEP's June 1 show against an opponent to be announced. Takimoto already has a 2-1 record against MIKU and lost to her on the June 16, 2007 DEEP show. Her victories over MIKU date back to 2004. Both fighters usually lose to top talent like Satoko Shinashi & Hisae Watanabe and win over lesser fighters. MIKU is much more accomplished today over a few years ago.
