Shibata has entered the G1 with the express purpose of kicking every motherfucker's head clean off. Ishii is a tough, uber-spirited, never-say-die underdog at the height of his battling powers, having entered a career defining performance against Tanhashi two nights earlier. And frankly, the moments immediately before & after the opening bell should be more than enough to reel you in.
