After the announcement last week of the All Star Junior USA one night four man tournament, we now have the other half of our four man bracket. Joining Clark Connors versus Kevin Knight, we will see Francesco Akira take on Mike Bailey in the first round. 

During Best of the Super Jr., Speedball Mike Bailey was in the opposite block to Francesco Akira, but did wrestle his Catch 2/2 teammate TJP in one of the best matches of the entire tournament. Akira will be looking to avenge his partners loss earlier this May in Nagoya by putting away Bailey, and keeping the potential of a clash with IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Championship implications in the final alive. 

On a landmark night for junior heavyweight wrestling, the winner of this tournament seems set to be the focal point of conversation, but just which of the four will have their hand raised?
