Akiyama Injuries Make DREAM.2 Participation Uncertain

Yoshihiro Akiyama was invited as a guest in an internet radio, "Tokyo Ochimasato RADIO" on Mar 22. He talked about his normal life and work in Korea. After the radio, he had a quick interview with DREAM.



- I suppose you enjoyed talking in the show?
Yes. I had fun a lot. I was surprised to see many people gathered around the studio when the show started.

- You said Korean broadcasting company, MBC, is with you and making a documentary?
MBC crew will be with me for a week from today. They film my life in Japan and make a documentary about me. I'm very appreciative of it.

- Didn't you say you released a CD?
Amazing, isn't it?

- I cannot wait! When is it in store?
I don't know any detail yet, but I heard it will be out in the middle of April.

- Did you go to Hawaii for training?
Yes. I went from the end of Feb to the beginning of March. I mainly spent time to do some weight training. I felt better and I think it was good for my body to train in warmer places like Hawaii.

- You said you are not sure if you fight in DREAM 2, and it depends on your injury. Could you tell me your condition?
I still have pain on my nose, although nose bones have been attached and are recovering. My knee is also getting better. I wonder why it is taking long time to be healed.

- DREAM 2 is coming in a month and a few days?
I am preparing to fight in DREAM 2. I'm mentally ready for sure and will announce my appearance in the event as soon as I recover from injuries.

- Do you have someone in your mind?
I will fight anybody. My goal is to fight in the final. I cannot lose before that and will do my best.

- I hope you recover sometime soon.
I will have a good fight if I fight. I'm looking forward to fighting and I hope my fans expect a lot from me. Thank you for supporting me.

Seriously, if Akiyama pulls out, this whole thing is going to shit.

Oh and BTW, word is that Sakuraba has pulled out because he has an unmanagable cut on his leg, so NO SAKU....

If Yoshi pulls out, they should just give Kang the title.

I don't understand why Dream isn't trying to get other MWs in this shiz. Misaki, Lindland, Manhoef, Trigg all come to mind when I think MW.

Misaki just signed a 2 fight contract with EXC, but I doubt it's exclusive, so he's plausible. Lindland signed a 3 fight contract with the new Affliction/De la Hoya Org, and Manhoef pulled out due to his participation in K-1 against Aerts.

Trigg wouldn't be a bad inclusion, as would Mayhem and Riggs.

PS: MMAO won't let me register

Yes, I'd love to see Mayhem too but I think Riggs is injured. I'd also like to see Ninja Rua in this tourney too.

Try now Plazz.
