The Crusher & Evil Fist Preparing! “I Will Show Them A Real Fight”
Tatsuya Kawajiri and Hiroyuki Takaya held an open training session together with Team Kurofune trainer Takeshi Yamada at the JB Sports Gym in Tokyo today. They had the same training menu (shadowboxing, sparring, mitts, etc.) and talked with the press afterward.
Kawajiri thinks that Calvan is a complete fighter, he has all aspects of MMA down. However, trainer Yamada has watched a lot of Calvan’s fights and has a counter-plan. Kawajiri doesn’t really think about the DREAM belt right now, if it happens it happens (literally if I do it I will do it).
When asked about the Super Hulk Tournament Kawajiri said: “I don’t know about the hulk or Canseco, but I will show the real thing. I will show them a real fight, I will make people watching on TV think that MMA is awesome”.
He isn’t interested in the Super Hulk Tournament but he understands, though it makes him feel sick, that “with only us” (fighters like him) a lot of people will not watch.
Takaya questions why his opponent, Yoshiro Maeda, didn’t come to the press conference where the Featherweight GP quarterfinals were announced since he himself woke up at 5 o’clock to take the train from Osaka to participate in it. About his weight, cutting down to 63 kg this time is no problem. Trainer Yamada has watched a lot of Maeda’s fights too.
