Kenta Kobashi vs. Naomichi Marufuji (NOAH, 4/23/2006)
A forgotten gem. This match is seriously awesome, it wasn't even your typical HW vs. Junior match, because Marufuji fought like a man, he studied Kobashi, he wasn't afraid (huge psychological plus) of him. Plus, he moved like Speedy Gonzales, but still managed to incorporate some strategies and moves typical for heavyweights. This match had some brilliant sequences (with chops and superkicks), and Kobashi's selling and look of surprise were marvelous. The finishing stretch was epic.
