Shibata chooses Okada, title match official for Sakura Genesis



With victories over Minoru Suzuki, Juice Robinson and Tomohiro Ishii, Katsuyori Shibata scored himself a spot in the New Japan Cup finals last night against Bad Luck Fale last night in Niigata. Shibata was able to defeat Fale (via PK) earning the right to call out anyone for a title shot of his choice. Shibata would call out Kazuchika Okada, opting for the top prize on the company, the IWGP Heavyweight Championship.

Shibata versus Okada has been officially set for Sakura Genesis on April 9th inside of Ryogoku Kokugikan in Sumida, Tokyo.
