DJ 5: Sachiko Fujimori vs Amiba

Name: Sachiko Fujimori
Age: 37
Weight: 115
Pro-debut: 8/31/2013
Record: 3-0

At the age of 36, Fujimori made her professional debut late in life. She has been active longer than her record reflects, having made her amateur debut back in 2010, going 1-2. Those amateur fights were against women at 130, which may have given her problems at the time. Having only competed for Deep Jewels, Fujimori is thus far perfect. Her 3 victories were against 3 equally green fighters so it is difficult to gauge her skills at the moment. She has 2 victories by submission and her biggest victory to date was a Split-Decision over AACC's Megumi Sugimoto.

Name: Yuko Oya
Age: 27
Height: 5"2 (157.5cm)
Weight: 115
Pro-debut: 5/16/2009
Record: 7-4

Amiba as she is known, is quite the character. She is a regular on Deep Jewels TV, due to her energetic and funny nature, and is often at MMA events in some capacity. She used to train at Deep Gym with Kitaoka, but since the gym's closure has moved over to AACC. At the gym famous for the female fighters, she has become one of Ayaka Hamasaki's main training partners. Her record of 7-4 is deceiving. Her opponents have a combined record of 34-73 and she has never defeated an opponent with a winning record. She does seem to have improved of late, but she in my opinion will be the underdog going into the fight.
