Takimoto Looking For Big Fights? -

Makoto Takimoto held an open training session at the J-ROCK workout studio today showing his boxing while wearing a long sleeve windbreaker. While it looks like the weight cut might be hard for him, Takimoto says that last time he had to cut 10 kg for his first fight at welterweight, but this time it’s only around half of that.

He has not really watched any footage of his opponent since there isn’t any available, but with his relaxed attitude going into fights he wasn’t intending to do much studying even if footage was available.

While Takimoto hasn’t won an MMA title since converting from judo, he looks at this fight as being one in which if he wins, he’ll be close to a title fight. For him, winning by KO or submission to make please the audience is ideal

While Takimoto wants his junior Hiroshi Izumi, who is like a younger brother to him, to do good in his MMA debut, about Ishii he said: “If Yoshida loses to him, I’d like to have a go at him next. I’m not thinking about it at present, but if the chance comes, I’d definitely like to try and fight him”.

Showing a smiling face and an interest in Ishii’s debut Takimoto finishes with: “Even if it’s an open-weight fight, it’s no problem”.

    I’m gonna say that Takimoto vs. Ishii is probably a bad idea. But it could be neat.

    Someone needs to remind him why he decided to drop to welterweight in the 1st place.
