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.

Kikuyo Ishikawa added to July 28 PANCRASE show
PANCRASE has added a women's match to their July 28 Differ Ariake show. In a match contracted for 48kg, Kikuyo Ishikawa will face Amber Brown. Ishikawa has fought for PANCRASE before in her home town of Okinawa. She trains at Reversal Ground Slam in Yokohama. Her record is 9-3 and her last fight was a win over MIYOKO on the Apr. 21 PANCRASE show in Okinawa. Her biggest win was over former VALKYRIE champ Yasuko Tamada on the Sept. 11, 2011 JEWELS show. Brown trains at FIT NHB in Albuquerque, NM. Her record is 2-1. She lost to Emi Fujino on the May 19 PANCRASE show. But that fight was at 52kg and Amber normally fights at 48kg so they thought they would give her another shot at her proper weight. Ishikawa has a big edge in experience so she should be the favourite in this match. We have seen PANCRASE run women's matches other than Rin Nakai occasionally. But it's been too scattered to conclude that they have any kind of commitment to anything other than Rin Nakai.
