Welcome to Frank Pozen's Big Bad Blog. A lot of folks have been asking me to update them about my recovery. So I thought I would start a blog primarily to do that but also to talk about other topics of interest including the wrestling business and whatever else I can think of. I plan to update this on a regular basis so check back and leave a comment if you wish.

Fuuka wins at Shoot Boxing but was it fixed?
I always hate to raise that kind of thing but Fuuka's win over Mai Ichii at today's Shoot Boxing show at Saitama Super Arena sure looks like it may have been fixed. But it doesn't look like Ichii or Fuuka knew if it was. First, DEEP Lightweight Champ MIKU won by unanimous decision over Lena. The Fuuka nonsense started with Sunday's press conference. Fuuka does her usual giggly airhead nonsense and the she talked about beating Ichii in wrestling. Ichii got pissed. You have to remember she's a kickboxing champ now. She holds the UKF Flyweight Championship. Ichii said she'll let her right hook do her talking but she had some other choice words for Fuuka. So then Fuuka comes to the ring in a pink Darth Vader mask complete with dancers. The match itself was close. Ichii dropped Fuuka once with a right hook and Fuuka got her shots in as well. But the key event was that Ichii was penalized a point for continuing after the round one bell sounded. Yeah, not even a warning. And Fuuka chuckled about this on her blog. The result of the match was a majority draw. One judge scored it 30-29 Fuuka. One judge scored it 30-29 Ichii. The other scored it a draw. So if Ichii hadn't been docked a point, theoretically she would have won. They had an overtime round and Fuuka won 3-0. The look on Ichii's face tells the whole story. I'm not saying the fighters knew about it but you never know what's going on behind the scenes especially when Hiroshi Ogawa is involved. How about a rematch, Fuuka?
