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.

Two matches added to May 26 JEWELS show in Osaka
JEWELS announced two matches have been added to their first appearance in Osaka May 26 at Taisho Azeria. They have also released the poster featuring the main event of Ayaka Hamasaki defending her JEWELS Lightweight Championship against Yuka Tsuji, probably the biggest match ever in JEWELS. In a match contracted for 53kg, Mika Nagano will face anna. Nagano trains at Core. Her record is 8-7 and her last fight was a unanimous decision loss to Emi Fujino at the Mar. 3 JEWELS show. anna trains at FIGHT CHIX. Her record is 1-9 and her last fight was a submission loss to Yuka Okumura on the Dec. 17 JEWELS show. She has had six straight losses since returning from a three year break in 2010. She may be one of the worst fighters in Japan. Nagano needs a win and if she doesn't win, maybe she should quit MMA and turn to pro wrestling full time. In a Featherweight match, SACHI will face Sadae Manhoef. SACHI trains with Yuka Tsuji at Angura. Her record is 9-6 and her last fight was an upset split decision win over former VALKYRIE champ Yasuko Tamada. Sadae "Manhoef" Suzumura trains at Cobra Kai in Osaka. Her record is 2-1-1 and her last fight was a TKO win over Bataco at the Sept. 4 DEEP show in Osaka. So she's on this show because she lives in Osaka. Sadae's training is kickboxing and she has named herself after her favourite kickboxer Melvin Manhoef. Both fights are scheduled for two five minute rounds with official JEWELS rules.
