#2: The King Has Arrived
King Mo also arrived to Japan on Monday and was interviewed by Sportsnavi on Tuesday. He says that Kawamura is the king of imitation and that he will show who the real king is on Friday. He also says that he aims at a submission victory. He wants to continue winning in Japan and become a SENGOKU champion. Mo is a big fan and has a lot of respect for Hidehiko Yoshida. He respects him and his samurai spirit from the PRIDE days and wants to become like him.
#1: Big Jim York Has Arrived
Big Jim York arrived to Japan on Monday and held a public training session in Tokyo on Tuesday. He has switched gym to the SIAM GYM since his last fight. His last gym was more of a Kickboxing gym while the new one is an MMA gym. He has watched James Thompson’s fights on YouTube. When talking about Thompson’s gong & rush style York said that while he thinks that the speed of his punches are greater than those of Thompson, he doesn’t want the fight to turn into a all-or-nothing type of fight, he wants to fight a smart fight.
