Katsuyori Shibata vs. Kensuke Sasaki from BML 2006

This match was probably more interesting than good. Early on, Sasaki was able to keep up with Shibata and got the advantage as a result.

He eventually could not keep the pace at such a high level though and was forced to slow down. Shibata did not come back right away, but the slower pace did allow for that in the end.

Shibata never went for the kill which gave Sasaki an opening to keep it competitive. Sasaki managed to win cleanly in the end as a result.

This was a case of a match using slow periods and a lack of killer instinct to their advantage in regards to storytelling. Anyone looking for a minor gem though will be disappointed. (***)
