Saki Akai’s final match. 

Coming up on November 12th, DDT Pro-Wrestling is presenting their Ultimate Party event from Ryōgoku Sumo Hall. Dating back to earlier this year, it had been determined that Saki Akai would be retiring from in-ring competition after her final bout on 11/12. 

The participants for her final match have been determined. She’ll be tagging with Hideki Okatani and Yukio Sakaguchi, who she holds the KO-D and AJPW TV Six-Man Tag Team Championships with. They are set to take on Naomichi Marufuji, Kazusada Higuchi and Miyu Yamashita.
