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.

Syuri's opponent named for Jan. 9 KRUSH show
Syuri, Miyako "SMILE" Masahori
KRUSH held a press conference today to announce the first kickboxing opponent for SMASH pro wrestler Syuri on their Jan. 9 Korakuen Hall show. In a match contracted for 52kg, Syuri will face Miyako "SMILE" Masahori. The thing that's odd about this is Syuri is competing as a kickboxer fully supported by SMASH owner Tajiri. So his intention is to use Syuri's kickboxing experience in pro wrestling angles. I'm not sure what he'll do if she loses. Masahori has a 4-3 record. She's actually in a kickboxing match on this Saturday's JEWELS show facing the soon to retire Mai. That match is at 49kg. And as you can see by the pic, Syuri has a definite size advantage. They're selling Masahori as a kickboxing mom so I guess she's been around the block a few times. Obviously Syuri is being set up to win. KRUSH producer Misuru Miyata claimed he had ten kickboxers wanting to fight Syuri. Another women's match was added at 57kg. Kimiko Sasaki will face Shiho Mizuno. Both matches are scheduled for three two minute rounds.
