XWA 45 Kota Ibushi vs Gota Ihashi first UK appearance
Ibushi and Ihashi flew in for two spectacular shows staged by XWA wrestling over the weekend of the 11th and 12th March 2017. Staged by XWA supremo Dann Read there was a show at Colchester's Charter Hall on the Saturday followed by a show at Bethnal Green's Resistance Gallery on the Sunday when Ibushi set himself on fire with a flare. The slideshow below is of Saturday's Colchester Charter Hall match that I was honoured to cover as the photographer. It features some excellent wrestling and includes cycling, boxing and an amazing out of the ring section. Finished off with a standing ovation from the packed crowd.
