Former flyweight King of Pancrase Mitsuhisa Sunabe (13-6-3) knocked out Shooto import Noboru "Shinpei" Tahara (9-5-1) with a vicious slam in the third round of their bout in Tokyo on Sunday. With the win, Sunabe earned a rematch against the man who took his title, current champion Kiyotaka Shimizu. In other action, Manabu Inoue (10-5-1) took a unanimous decision over Tashiro "Akai" Nishiuchi (14-7-10), defending his bantamweight title and running his current win streak to four. Inoue will next enter the quarterfinals of Sengoku's 2010 Asia Bantamweight Tournament. The main event saw light-heavyweight champ Ryo Kawamura (12-6-2) upset by journeyman Yuji Sakuragi (12-16-1, 1 NC) in a non-title affair. Sakuragi blitzed the slow-starting Kawamura from the opening bell and knocked him out with a barrage of punches just four minutes in to the match. Full results at Sherdog; photo by GBRing.
