Deep Plans First Cage Event
TOKYO -- The Deep promotion on Saturday announced plans for its
first cage event on Dec. 19 at the Differ Ariake Arena.
“Cage Impact 2009,” the show becomes notable, not only as the
organization’s first cage event but because elbows and stomps will
be permitted. Reigning Deep bantamweight champion Masakazu
Imanari and former Deep lightweight titleholder Nobuhiro
Obiya will compete, along with Toshikazu
Matsumoto and Eiji
The 32-year-old Imanari has won eight of his past 10 bouts. He last
competed at Deep “43
Impact” in August, when he defeated Tomohiko
Hori by unanimous decision. Obiya, who has dropped three of his
last four matches, has not fought since December 2008.
