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.

Four fights announced for Feb. 4 JEWELS show
JEWELS held a press conference today to announce four fights for their Feb. 4 Shinjuku FACE show. It appears that none of them will be the main event. Not surprisingly, it looks like they are using fighters that were on the first show. In an Open Weight match, the very tall HIROKO will face Michiko Takeda. HIROKO is 5-1 and won over Takeda by split decision on the May 19, 2007 Smackgirl show. She won over Benkei on the first JEWELS show. Takeda is 3-2-1 and the loss to HIROKO is her most recent fight. In a 48kg fight, Misaki Takimoto will face Yasuko Tamada. Both are veterans but have never fought each other. Takimoto is 9-9-4 and won over Masako Yoshida on the first JEWELS show. Tamada is 8-4-3 and her last fight was a draw with Naoko Omuro on the Nov. 8 VALKYRIE show. In a 52kg fight, Masako Yoshida will face Shinsaki Ozawa. Yoshida is 14-14-5 and lost to Takimoto on the last JEWELS show. Ozawa lost her debut to Yuko Oya on the first JEWELS show. In a 60kg fight, Shizuka Sugiyama will face Shiho. Both debuted on the first JEWELS show. Sugiyama won over Harumi. Shiho won over Mayu. I think they have high hopes for Sugiyama because of her looks. She's second to the right in the above pic. Saori Ishioka (6-3) and Benkei (2-6) will also be on the show against opponents TBA. JEWELS GM Saeki also said something about a special tag team match but he said they're having trouble finding fighters for that. I hope they don't do that. This ain't pro wrestling.
