Deep Jewels 30 Results: Maesawa Submits Aono, Retains Atomweight Title

On Saturday, Oct. 31, Deep Jewels hosted its 30th event. The all-women’s show took place at New Pier Hall in Tokyo.

In the night’s main event, atomweight champion Tomo Maesawa faced off with challenger Hikaru Aono. Maesawa won the title in late 2018 with a victory over Mina Kurobe and had since defended it against Emi Tomimatsu. In between defenses of the Jewels crown, Maesawa also clashed with elite fighters Ayaka Hamasaki and Seo Hee Ham. She was unsuccessful in both of those fights. The 27-year-old Aono entered this fight on the heels of a July victory over Rion Noda. The challenger had won three of her last four outings.

The event took place at 5 a.m. ET on Saturday.
