Shizuka Sugiyama faces Asami Nakai at Deep-Jewels 25
Deep-Jewels 25 is set for Shinjuku on September 1st. The event will be headlined by a flyweight fight between Shizuka Sugiyama and Asami Nakai.
Sugiyama (17-6-1) is a Rizin veteran who is coming off a decision win over Chan Mi Jeon at Double G 2 in Korea. She was also in action at Rizin Heisei’s Last Yarennoka! on New Year’s Eve, getting stopped after 11 seconds by Kana Watanabe.
By contrast Nakai (3-1) is in decent form. The 24 year old has won her last three fights and scored a decision win over the experienced Yuko Oya at Deep-Jewels 23 earlier this year.
In the co-main event Mayumi Aoki (6-9) takes on Mao Ueda (0-1) in the seldom seen women’s featherweight division. There are currently seven bouts on the card including a strawweight kickboxing contest involving Chinese MMA veteran Pan Hui.
