MIKU wastes no time on Apr. 16 DEEP show
DEEP Lightweight Champ MIKU wasted no time in her match against Nicdali Calanic at today's DEEP show at Korakuen Hall. The match was contracted for 120lbs. MIKU normally fights at 115 and Calanic fights at 125 so they decided to split the difference. Calanic begins the match with a front kick and pushes MIKU into the corner. But MIKU grabs her around the neck and nails her with knees to the body. Calanic drops to the mat. MIKU lands a knee to the head and the ref stops the fight at 21 seconds of round one. That's all, folks! MIKU said afterwards that her next fight will be on the June 28 DEEP show against an oppenent to be named. And who's that taking pictures in the accompanying pic? Well, that's Megumi Fujii of course. She'd make a great opponent for MIKU. I wanna see it. Make it happen, Shigeru Saeki. One other quick note. You may recall that former DEEP Lightweight Champ Hisae Watanabe retired last year. Hisae was scheduled to make her return in a kickboxing match in Thailand last week but the show was cancelled due to civil unrest in Thailand. I look forward to her return to MMA.
