NJPW crowns BOSJ winner, title match set for Dominion

Will Ospreay became the winner of this year's Best of the Super Juniors tournament by ending Shingo Takagi's undefeated streak this morning.

In a 30-plus minute match, Ospreay defeated Takagi in the Best of the Super Juniors finals at Sumo Hall in Tokyo. Ospreay will now challenge for Dragon Lee's IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship at Dominion on Sunday (June 9).

Ospreay hit an OsCutter on Takagi from the top rope at the end of the match. He held on, then hit the Storm Breaker to get the win.

Ospreay announced after the match that he's moving to Japan. Ospreay said he's going to take NJPW worldwide as a junior heavyweight, and he wants to face both junior heavyweights and heavyweights.

This is the second time that Ospreay has won the Best of the Super Juniors. He also won the tournament in 2016.

Dominion is taking place at Osaka-jo Hall in Osaka on Sunday. Kazuchika Okada will defend the IWGP Heavyweight Championship against Chris Jericho, Kota Ibushi will defend his IWGP Intercontinental title against Tetsuya Naito, and Tomohiro Ishii will challenge for Taichi's NEVER Openweight Championship.
