ZERO1 Fire Festival 2011 – Day 7
Finals: Daisuke Sekimoto vs. Kohei Sato
Finals. Awesome match. The funny thing is, in all Sekimoto matches, how they start really slow and methodical, with a lot of one upmanship, and you may think and go “this guy, eh… really?”, but then, as match progresses, you suddenly become aware of Sekimoto’s greatness and his amazing ability to suck you in. The way he builds things in his matches in simply tremendous, hence why his climax moments are always so awesome and dramatic. This match is Sekimoto 101 exactly. Sato did his job well too, so this was not a carryjob. Awesome heavyweight battle.

ZERO1 World Heavyweight Championship: Kohei Sato © vs. Daisuke Sekimoto
Similar to their Fire Festival match, but longer and better. Awesome shit, another great showcase of Sekimoto’s immense storytelling skills. This was a true heavyweight battle, plenty of stiff strikes and strength testing, but it never got annoying. Sekimoto was busting out some impressive moves left and right down the road, and the finishing stretch was exciting. They didn’t spam stuff, everything was cooled down. I loved how Sekimoto pulled off few moves he rarely uses, such as Flying Elbow, it was a nice touch, and displayed the struggle in the clash. Great match.
