On Saturday, June 9, DEEP Jewels held its 20th event from Shinjuku Face in Tokyo, Japan.

In the night’s main event, former DEEP Jewels 52-kilogram champion Emi Tomimatsu took on ROAD FC veteran Jung Eun Park. Tomimatsu had won five of her past seven with wins over Saori Ishioka, Pan Hui and Satomi Takano (twice). Park had her four-fight winning streak snapped by top-10 atomweight Mina Kurobe in her most recent bout at DEEP 81 Impact.

In the evening’s main card action, “King” Reina Miura looked for her ninth career win against South Korean striker Eun Ji Choi, popular judoka Kana Watanabe tangled with Yukari Nabe again following their draw in March, and former title challenger Shizuka Sugiyama met Sachiko Fujimori.

Also, the event featured the retirement ceremony for Naho “Sugi Rock” Sugiyama, who won the Jewels featherweight queen grand prix, DEEP atomweight title, and fought for the Invicta FC atomweight title in her only bout outside of Japan. She finished her career at the age of 40 with 12 wins and five losses.

The event aired live at 5:30 a.m. ET on Ameba TV (Japan).
