[1998-10-05-BattlARTS-B Cup] Yuki Ishikawa vs Mitsuhiro Matsunaga

This is like an Abdullah the Butcher match happening in BattlARTS with Matsunaga hiding a pencil from the referee and stabbing Ishikawa with it every chance he gets. I didn't really care for this at all, mainly because this was very not BattlARTS. Maybe it would be fine as a random AJ undercard match from the late 70s or early 80s. Ishikawa showed great passion with the KO finish, but there's a time and place for everything, and I don't really want this in my BattlARTS.

Best BattlArts match ever and fuck anyone who disagrees. This is worked as a total Inoki-Singh tribute, with both guys doing all of their respective signature spots, but done with about a million times more panache and urgency. Ishikawa gets his comeback and pounds Matsunaga into dust before this can wear out its welcome. A million billion stars, minus one or two because of Matsunaga not even trying to hide his little stabby thing from the ref.
