Full Card Released for Pancrase Changing #6


Back in June, Mitsuhisa Sunabe turned Takuya Eizumi's lights out with a stunning left hand counter to become the inaugural Flyweight King of Pancrase. In just under two weeks, the 30-year-old veteran Pancrasist will make his first title defense against unbeaten Isao Hirose in the semi-main event of Pancrase's sixth "Changing Tour" show.

The promotion today released its full card and bout order for the show, and the main event will be a nostaglic middleweight scrap between Yuki Kondo and "The Pink Typhoon," Yuji Hisamatsu. On the undercard, old school meets new school when second-generation Shooto featherweight champ Masahiro "Jackal" Oishi tussles with Pancrase's first bantamweight king, Manabu Inoue, in a three-rounder.

The night also opens up with a fight to watch out for, as 4-0 judo convert Isao Kobayashi goes up against Hiroki "AB" Aoki, who's had a tough schedule so far in his young career but is only getting better.
