Inoki's New Year's show falling apart Dave@wrestlingobserver.comFaced with his show falling apart, Antonio Inoki announced on Monday that Fedor Emelianenko would face Yuji Nagata in the main event of his Bom Ba Ye show. Officials of Inoki's promotion had previously announced Emelianenko would not appear due to his exclusive contract with Pride. Pride officials, when this was said, threatened legal action against the promoters and NTV.This was done after Ray Mercer, the former heavyweight boxing champion, didn't come to Japan, backing out of the scheduled main event against pro wrestler Kazuyuki Fujita. They are scrambling to find an opponent for Fujita, but on less than two days notice, it may be impossible.In addition, on the K-1 show, Cyril Abidi canceled, claiming an injury, his scheduled match against Zero-One and UPW pro wrestler The Predator. The name given as Predator's opponent was Mauricio Silva.
