3/2 ZERO1 Results
ZERO1 is holding their 11th Anniversary Commemoration event today, results from Korakuen via SportsNavi:
As always, they didn’t announce attendance. but SportsNavi reports they used the entire available space instead of what they usually do-half-and “many audiences were gathered”. So probably in the 1000s.

In a Double Title Match, ZERO1 International Jr. Heavyweight Champion Takuya Sugawara beat NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Champion Tsuyoshi Kikuchi in 8:12 to retain the ZERO1 title and win the NWA Title. Sugawara becomes the 3rd NWA World Jr. Heavyweight Champion. ZERO1 V5 for Sugawara.
