Kid Yamamato Hoping To Fight In DREAM In June Or July
 
Before officially opening on April 1st, YSA had a reception for the press. At first, Ikuei Yamamoto,who is KID's father and an Munchen Olympian, said YSA has facilities needed for everyone to enjoy workouts and to have intensive training. I will put all my knowledge to raise top level athletes. Next, KID said, my dad took care of my food, training and treatment whenever needed, then I could be a strong enough to defeat wrestlers who are 2 classes heavier than me. I would like to be stronger and prove what my dad does works great. YSA had an amateur fight, KRAXY BEE vs AACC. KID showed his wrestling sparring with his nephew.


After the reception, KID talked about Kotetsu Boku and his next fight.
"He should do all he could do in his fight and it's not acceptable to have a fight to regret later."
"I don't know when my next fight is yet, but I'm sure I fight in DREAM and I hope I can fight in Jun or July."
"At first, I want DREAM to have a lighter weight class than the light weight class. 63 to 64 kg is ideal. "
"I want to give my full support to raise good amateur wrestlers. I want to have events regularly and create something new and unique from here."
"I was brought up by people in my gym for long time. It's time for me to repay for what I got in the ring before by raising young people.

This is great news if he mixes it up with the LWs.

KID vs Dida, KID vs Ishida...just awesome.

Nice. DREAM is really shaping up to be an elite league for lightweights, it truly rivals the UFC's LW Division.

Kid Yamamoto!!!

It'd almost be unfair to have Yamamoto fight in a Featherweight class, being that he destroys Lightweights.. He'll own the Featherweight division for as long as he wants if they get that division in.

Hopefully DREAM will give Yamaoto something to lure him into fighting in their shows. If they can start building the organization around someone as popular in Japan as him, then I think it'll go a long way to getting their shows back on TBS and being successful in the long run...

He talked about 62 or 63 kg. That would be like 140 or so. That would be pretty cool.

Ishida and Kid. I like the sound of that. I think Yamamoto would send Dida to the hospital doing most of the damage after Dida had already been knocked unconscious. No offense bbjd.
