Open Weight! Is Tokoro Creating His Own NYE Tradition?

Two new Dynamite!! fights have been announced. In a Hero’s rules fight Hideo Tokoro will once again face a larger opponent on NYE, 2 years ago it was Royce Gracie in a fight that ended in a draw, this time it’s Kiyoshi Tamura.

Tamura defeated Minowaman on NYE last year in Pride but lost in his Hero’s debut against Kin Taiei in July. Tokoro lost in the first round of this years Hero’s Middleweight Tournament against Black Mamba but got a win between then and now at ZST.15 in late November. After that fight he said that he would like to face Minowaman at Dynamite!!, but it seems that it will be Tamura instead.

The other fight is a K-1 rules fight between Musashi and Hero’s veteran Bernard Ackah. Ackah won his first two fights in Hero’s but has since then lost two in a row as the competition got tougher. Musashi won his last K-1 fight in a superfight at the K-1 finals event with a kick to the body KO.
