Valkyrie 8: Fight Card Update

Four more fights have been announced for Greatest Common Multiple’s all-female Valkyrie 8 card on November 28th. Valkyrie Flyweight Champion Yasuko Tamada will face Naho “Sugi Rock” Sugiyama in a non-title bout, while promotional veterans will return in other featured fights.

Unbeaten prospect Ayame “Iris” Miura will face Mayumi “Super Benkei” Aoki in a 58kg bout, while Mika “Hari” Harigai welcomes Chisa Yonezawa back to Valkyrie after a one-year absence. In other action, Kimie “Sakura” Okada will look for her first win when she faces Megumi Morioka.

Tamada (12-4-3) has not lost in over four years and is currently riding an impressive 12-fight unbeaten streak. Once a divisional castaway, Tamada’s training alongside Megumi Fujii has developed her into one of the sport’s elite female fighters and she added Valkyrie gold to her résumé with a decision win over Naoko Omuro in June. She will move up in weight to face the unbeaten Sugiyama (2-0-0), who stopped Megumi Morioka with punches on the same June Valkyrie card. Sugiyama will give up a significant amount of experience, but should hold a strength advantage.
