Joshi News: Title Change This Past Weekend
Although I don’t have official match results yet, Ringstars reports a title change over the weekend-at the Osaka Women’s Pro event, Sawako Shimotsuke actually got a rare win…and a big one. She beat JWP Jr. Champion & POP Champion Kagetu to win the titles. Shimotsuke becomes the 21st JWP Jr. Champion & 11th POP Champion. Interesting timing considering she was just in a recent photoshoot for the newest edition of Ringstars that just went on sale in Japan (also the 2nd issue in a row to feature Yuzuki Aikawa on the cover, this time she shares it with top shootboxer RENA). No word yet on when or where her first defense will be, but considering JWP has a big show coming up on 8/7 that could be the place.
More as it becomes available.
