DEEP 64th Impact: Wada vs Ochi, former DEEP Champ Motoya vs King Of Pancrase Shimizu

Screen Shot 2013-12-21 at 8.21.23 PM

DEEP 64th Impact takes place in Tokyo on December 22, 2013. Champ Wada faces Ochi, former Champ Hasegawa faces Hamamura, and Yuki Motoya comes back to take on King of Pancrase Shimizu. The 2013 Future King Tournament will also take place.

Main-eventing DEEP’s final 2013 outing aside from the Kasugai Rookies event on the same date, will be the current DEEP Flyweight Champ Tatsumitsu Wada who takes on number one contender Haruo Ochi. Wada was also the former Bantamweight Champion and dropped a weight class after relinquishing the strap to Yoshiro Maeda. Ochi earned his shot by choking out Chikara Shimabukuro in October.

In another crossover bout with Pancrase, KOP Kiyotaka Shimizu hops in the DEEP ring to face first and former Flyweight Champion Yuki Motoya. Motoya blazed through the Flyweight Tournament of 2012 to win the inaugural Championship at Toyama Impact 11 , then lost it in his first defense to current holder Wada. Shimizu was the Pancrase Neo-Blood Flyweight Finalist of 2009 and since then he’s gained and defended the KOP title five times. Although he’s made massive history within Pancrase, he’s never been afraid to step outside that ring and into others, most notably to Shooto where he fought game wars with BJ Kojima and Mamoru.

The indominantable Keita “K-Taro” Nakamura also makes the transition to DEEP. The journeyman’s last two years have seen him debut in Legend FC and VTJ after securing the Sengoku title from Yasubey Enomoto. K-Taro is expected to be given an immediate title shot when he debuts in PXC next year. But first he’ll take on Crazy Kwang Hee Lee who has only fought once – and successfully – since being trumped by Kikuno Kazunori in DEEP in 2011. The Spirit MC champ might have met K-Taro earlier in Sengoku, but he was finished in the semis against Eiji Mitsuoka. Now he’s back and climbing the JMMA ranks again with another huge opponent.
