Kakutou Ouji! Kawajiri-Masato War Of Words

People outside of Japan might not be aware, but there is a lot of tension between Masato and Kawajiri heading into their K-1 MAX fight next week.

Because of this the fight has been featured on all recent Kakutou Ouji episodes in Japan.

The press conference

At around 3:03:

Masato: Will you really rally with me?
Kawajiri: Of course, let’s plant our feet and exchange blows with no guard.
Masato: Is that so? Is that so? (or I see, I see)
Masato: If that’s the case, you had better not miss it everyone.

Masato goes on to say that he’s extremely strong right now and that it will end in the blink of an eye.

FEG President Tanigawa then speaks, talking about Kawajiri defeating Takeda on NYE, but when he is about to talk about Kawajiri defeating Calvan this year, Masato interrupts (3:47).

Masato: Me and Takeda are completely different. Seriously different.

Kawajiri then owns and says something like: What’s with that self-important (conceited) talk. (I’ve wanted someone to tell Masato (not that I don’t like Masato) something like that)

Don’t interrupt Kawajiri’s training

Kawajiri’s trainer tells the girls: Leave x 2 (not polite grammar used to strangers but still not very strong, something between leave and please leave). You’re annoying x 3. Leave! (imperative, you won’t hear this often at all between strangers in Japan, especially for serious on TV).

Then at 0:50 when they ask Kawajiri if an interview is ok, Kawajiri says: “I’m in the middle of training now” and waves them off (lol at the girl trying to conceal her laugh by coughing).

    I like Kawajiri… in MMA but Masato is going to KILL him. It won’t even be a fight.

    Kawajiri’s trainer is from the Mickey Goldmill (old) school of training. No broads allowed.

    The doe eyed one in black will be haunting my dreams these next few nights (which is good since Ive been havnig too many Christine Cyborg Santos ones lately).

    Always nice to have this kind of background info on japanese fights.
