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.

Kanna Asakura vs Yoon Ha Hong added to Aug. 27 DEEP JEWELS show
Kanna Asakura, Yoon Ha Hong
Today DEEP JEWELS announced an addition and a couple of changes to the Aug. 27 show at Differ Ariake. They are running this back to back with a DEEP show. The added match will have 18 year old Kanna Asakura vs Korean Yoon Ha Hong at Atomweight. Kanna trains at Paraestra Matsudo. Her record is 4-1. The oddball thing about Kanna is all of her wins have been over old ladies like Yasuko Tamada who must be 50 years old. All of these fights were for VTJ or Shooto. I don't see how booking a teen against old ladies does her any good. Kanna's one loss was to Syuri on the Apr. 24 PANCRASE show. At least Yoon is closer to her age. She's 26. But like a lot of Koreans, she's a kickboxer. In her only MMA fight, Emi Fujino choked Yoon out in the first minute on the May 14 Road FC show. That's not an encouraging sign. There were two changesto the show. German fighter Tanja Hoffmann was supposed to fight Nori DATE who has been replaced by First DATE. Yuko Kiryu was supposed to face 12 year old Karen DATE and Pan Hui was supposed to face Renju DATE. Yuko will now face Pan Hui or as she is billed KAI. Maybe someone thought Karen is too young to fight. No reason for the change was given in the press release.
