Tenkaichi Super Fight decides featherweight championship

Date Posted: 2012-06-08

The All-Okinawa Featherweight Championship is on the line next weekend as the Tenkaichi Super Fight answers the question ‘Who is the Strongest Fighter in Okinawa?”

Koza Music Town’s the venue for the Clash in Okinawa, with Kenji, who holds the second position in the division, taking on third place challenger Naoya Aguni for the Championship Belt fighting under Kick Boxing Rules. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. on June 17th for the Tenkaichi Super Fight, with a challenge round at 4 p.m. leading up to the Super Fight at 5 p.m.

Also on the card is a bantamweight match, also fighting by Kick Boxing rules. Okinawa’s champion, Maki, is going against mainland Japan’s Koji Maeda, a former champion now with the group NJKF. Shikou Tomaru, who represents Wild Seasar, says “this match will be a truly high level match, noting a lot of fighters with real talent belong to NJKF. He says the event can be billed as Tenkaichi versus NJKF.

Heavyweight fighter Hiroya meets Yabiku, a middleweight boxer, for a bout under boxing rules. Both fighters have kick boxing reputations, but also for good boxing technique. Observers say Hiroya has the strongest punch in Okinawa, while Yabiku says he’s a technician. Viewed by boxing pundits, it’s a match pitting a “strong arm fighter against a technician fighter”.

The lightweight championship tournament goes by kick boxing rules, with two first round matches to be held. The championship will carry over to the next Tenkaichi Event. On the ladies pro fight side, it’s a match between a Japanese gal and a woman from the U.S. Forces.

Challenge matches go by Mixed Martial Arts rules for amateurs. Says Wild Seasar’s Tomaru, “the main event this time puts a high level technical mater by low weight class fighters. It will be high speed, and spectators have to keep a watchful eye on the action every second. As for the other matches, look for power fighting by weighty class fighters whose actions will be really impressive. Tomaru says Tenkaichi’s mix of boxing, kick boxing and MMA in a single event makes it doubly enjoyable.

Tickets are available for the Tenkaichi Super Fight at the Mail Centers on Kadena Air Base and Camp Foster. Advance tickets are ¥3,500 or $45, Ring Side tickets ¥4,500 or $60, and Special Ring Side Tickets ¥5,500 or $75. Tickets purchased at the door are $5 more.
