DEEP president Shigeru Saeki has announced some of the fighters that will compete at Haleo Impact, which will feature the retirement bout of Kazuo Misaki.
Former DREAM Featherweight contender Kazuyuki Miyata will make his first appearance for DEEP since 2009. Former Sengoku Featherweight Champ Masanori Kanehara has also been confirmed for the event. Neither men’s opponents have been announced.
Ryuta Sakurai will look to bounce back after his recent defeat to Kazuhiro Nakamura when takes on The Smiley Killer, Hiromitsu Kanehara, in a rematch of their 2009 bout which went to a draw. Also, coming off his brutal bare knuckle contest with Sanae Kikuta, Yuji Sakuragi returns to DEEP to take on Daiju Takase.
