CMLL FantasicaMania Night 7 will be taking place from Korakuen Hall tomorrow January 19th. In the semi-main event of the show Japanese wrestling legend Satoshi Kojima will be taking on CMLL World Heavyweight Champion Ultimo Guerrero for the golfd.
NJPW1972.com wrote the following preview for the bout:
In the semi-main event of the evening, Satoshi Kojima will challenge CMLL World Heavyweight Champion Ultimo Guerrero, as he looks for his first championship gold in three years.
Guerrero, the 20th CMLL Heavyweight Champion since the title’s inception in 1991 has been a dominant one, holding the title 460 days and heading into his seventh defence. His title defence scalps have joined some almost literal ones, as Guerrero managed to take the hair of Negro casas as a result of a cage match in CMLL last year.
For Kojima, a tall mountain to climb then. His last singles bout was a victory against Yota Tsuji in October, but his last title win was in the same year as the last defence of this championship in Japan, 2017. In the last two Fantasticamania tours, Kojima has put up fierce fights but ones that ended in defeat to Rush and Terrible. Friday at Korakuen however, a lariat led to victory for the strongest arm. Can he turn momentum into championship glory?
Tomorrow night at Korakuen Hall!
