Minoru Tanaka vs Mitsuhisa Sunabe
taped 10/29/2017, aired 11/22/2017
Yokohama Bunka Gymnasium, Yokohama, Japan
(reviewed 12/15/2017) Hell yeah, shooter vs pro wrestler action! Sunabe’s a pretty talented Pancrase fighter, being the Pancrase Flyweight Champion as of this writing who was on an 11 fight win streak leading into this match. And then Tanaka’s Tanaka, so you know this is gonna be a good one. It’s real short, around four minutes long, but they pack a lot in as Sunabe keys in on the veteran’s arm right away and Tanaka takes a more wrestling-based approach that sort of targets the stomach. Don’t skip this one if you’re watching this show for the bigger matches later on.
