Kazuyuki Fujita made the first defense of the GHC heavyweight championship on Monday.

The 51-year old champion defeated Masato Tanaka in the main event of Pro Wrestling NOAH’s Great Voyage in Fukuoka with a match that went over thirty-one minutes.

Tanaka, 49, entered into an exchange of headbutts before being struck by a soccer kick and Beast Bomb, which the challenger kicked out from. Fujita followed with two more Beast Bombs and pinned Tanaka.

After the match, Fujita shook Tanaka’s hand.

The card also featured Atsushi Kotoge & YO-HEY retaining the GHC junior heavyweight tag titles against NOSAWA Rongai & Kotaro Suzuki.
