Drunk Sakurai! Causing Trouble At Boxing Fight
Hayato “Mach” Sakurai and some other people with him caused trouble at a Boxing fight in Japan yesterday. It seems that they were drunk and threw cups containing some beverage into the ring. The promoter went after them to make them leave their seats and other staff got involved.
It seems that Ryo Chonan was also drinking and making noise with that group (don’t know if he threw anything into the ring though) since he apologized in his blog after someone who was at the arena wrote a comment in one of his earlier blog posts.
At DREAM.11, Hiroyuki Takaya’s “gang” also caused trouble in the audience, bothering other visitors. Sasahara talked about this after the event and said that it’s their (DREAM’s) responsibility.
Things like this are important. If something big happens sometime and gets covered by something big an MMA org could lose sponsors, and that would most likely lead them to their death. The image of MMA isn’t the best either.
