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 set for Nov. 3 DEEP JEWELS show
Saori Ishioka, Mina Kurobe
Today DEEP JEWELS announced two matches for their Nov. 3 show at Shinjuku FACE. I can only assume they are co-main events but it doesn't say if they are two or three five minute rounds. Both are Atomweight fights. Saori Ishioka will face Mina Kurobe. Remember when DEEP JEWELS sold Ishioka on her sex appeal. Now they're calling her Fighter Mom. Of course Ishioka returned last year after having a baby. She's 1-1 since returning so I guess that makes her suitable for a main event. Kurobe has an 8-2 record but at 39 years old, she's too old to be a prospect. The other fight will have Emi Tomimatsu vs Tomo Maesawa. Both have .500 records. Tomimatsu is 11-11 and Maesawa is 6-6. That says it all. Neither fighter is very good. It's like DEEP JEWELS is shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic. These are the usual suspects. And the rest of the show will be filled out with DATE models. Ugh! At least DEEP JEWELS announced that Emiko Raica with make her promotional debut on this show. This is the retired boxing champ who turned to MMA a couple of years ago. She's 2-4 and she's 40 years old. In her latest fight, she got clobbered by Rin Nakai. Maybe that's not a good thing. I'll let you know when more fights are announced.
