Default Inoki Bom Ba Ye is back NYE

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

Inoki Genome Federation will produce an INOKI BOM-BA-YE event on a New Years Eve for the first time in 9 years (2003 was the last time) at the Ryougoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan.

The event will consist of both Puroresu (Pro-Wrestling) matches and MMA bouts. The event will be aired on December 31st on BS Fuji from 7 PM to 9:25 PM. And bigger news yet is that it will also be aired, very late at night, on the real Fuji TV on January 3rd. It was a while ago any Kakutougi (Combat Sports) was aired on Fuji TV, who used to air PRIDE.

5 bouts have been announced for the card thus far and three of them are IGF MMA rules fights. Mirko Cro Cop will take on former-Sumo-Wrestler-turned-Pro-Wrestler Shinichi Suzukawa, Olympic Judo gold medalist Satoshi Ishii will battle former UFC Heavyweight Champion Tim Sylvia, and “Real Pro-Wrestler” Minowaman will face Slovenian MMA fighter Bor Bratovz.

As for Puroresu, the legendary Kazuyuki Fujita will take on Olympic Judo silver medalist Naoya Ogawa and K-1 legend Ray Sefo will team up with fellow K-1 fighter Hiromi Amada to face Pro-Wrestlers Atsushi Sawada and Hideki Suzuki in a Tag Team bout.
Not sure how Inoki always manages to do it but his getting his show on TV while Dream have no TV. Love him or hate him the guy still has a mahor influence in the fighting industry in Japan.
