TAPE 348

Quality: EX (Master Convert)

Length: 3 hrs (2 DVD)

UWFI - 12/22/91 (This is one of UWFI's attempts to add an air of legitimacy to their style by bringing in a couple of boxers to fight in shoots. It doesn't quite work, but this is a good tape nonetheless. I've got a master convert so VQ is perfect.)
Masakazu Maeda vs Hiromitsu Kanehara Peter Russell vs Makoto Oe (kickboxing) Jim Boss vs Masahito Kakihara (Vicious match) Yuko Miyato vs Tom Burton Kiyoshi Tamura vs Gary Albright Bob Backlund vs Yoji Anjoh (Backlund wins with the chicken wing crossface!) Tatsuo Nakano vs Kazuo Yamazaki Billy Scott vs James Warring (Wrestler vs Boxer: This is a shoot that goes the distance. Maybe the worst decision ever as Scott gets the win when he does absolutely nothing the whole match except throw Warring over the top rope.) Nobuhiko Takada vs Trevor Berbick (Wrestler vs Boxer: This is the infamous shoot where Berbick walks out on the match. Berbick has apparently been told you can't kick below the waist, which Takada keeps doing. Berbick pleads to the ref for help, and the ref apparently tells him that he's right, that kicks have to be above the waist. Takada keeps kicking Berbick while he's talking to the ref and then, even after Berbick is told kicks have to be above the waist, continues kicking Berbick's legs. Berbick gets pissed off and walks out! After the match, Berbick is shown in the locker room and he can't even stand from the pain in his legs. Wild stuff!)
