They were in Setagaya to support former fighter-turned-trainer Yuichi Kasai [葛西 裕一] who held a party event to announce that he would be opening a gym, the "Cardio Boxing GLOVES".
As a fighter Kasai won the Japanese and OPBF Super Bantamweight titles and was a 3-time world title challenger. Following his retirement in the late 1990's he became one of the leading trainers at the Teiken gym, bringing through 4 world champions including the recently retired Takashi Miura (31-4-2, 24) [三浦 隆司] who was in attendance at today's event.
Officially the gym will open on September 18th, though the gym will start accepting memberships from tomorrow with Kasai expected to have a number of his boxing acquaintances showing their faces at the gym, potentially including Miura and Ryota Murata (12-1, 9) [村田 諒太], who also has strong links with Kasai thanks to his work at Teiken.
