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.

Shizuka Sugiyama returns on Dec. 17 JEWELS show
JEWELS announced two more matches have been added to their Dec. 17 Korakuen Hall show. In a match contracted for 59kg, Shizuka Sugiyama will face Esui. Sugiyama trains at the Yokohama branch of Zendokai. Her record is 6-2 and her last fight was a loss to Miki Morifuji on the Mar. 19 JEWELS show. She was supposed to face Esui in July but she suffered a shoulder injury in training. Esui is the Mongolian former pro wrestler. She trains at Smash Alley Gym which is the MMA division of the SMASH pro wrestling company. She lost her MMA debut to Super Benkei on the July 31 JEWELS show. In a match contracted for 57kg, Miki Morifuji's retirement match will be against Kinuka Sasaki. Unlimited ground and pound will be allowed in this match. Morifuji trains at T-Blood. Her record is 10-6 and her last fight was a win over Ariya on the Oct. 10 JEWELS show. Sasaki trains at Alive. Her record is 3-8 and her last fight was a loss to Ayaka Hamazaki on the Oct. 25, 2009 Shooto show. Two of Sasaki's wins have been over Morifuji on the Apr. 29, 2005 Smackgirl show and the Aug. 6, 2008 Kingdom Of Grapple show. I understand Morifuji chose Sasaki for her retirement match for that reason. Still more to come. Saori Ishioka is scheduled to appear but her opponent has not been named.
