Back in 2011 Ryuto Kyoguchi (15-2-1, 11) [京口 竜人] looked like a star in the making with an attractive style, a fun personality and a gym pushing him as the second Joichiro Tatsuyoshi. It looked as if Osakan boxing was set to have another must watch fighter when he won the Featherweight Rookie of the year and began going through the rankings. Sadly though things since then haven't ben great with the fighter having issues in, and out of the ring.
In the ring he has claimed a controversial draw with Adones Aguelo, in a bout most had his losing, suffered a 3rd round TKO to Kosuke Saka and suffered a recent split decision loss to Silvester Lopez.
Outside of the ring things have been worse, with an arrest for an assault against his name in 2015, which lead to Osaka Teiken dropping him. Green Tsuda gave him a chance but he has now let that gym down as well following an arrest for drink driving early this week in Osaka. It's clear that his fun personality can see him go to far at times, and it's obvious that he really needs to sort it out, before it costs him, or someone else, their life.
The gym have taken responsibility for Kyoguchi's actions but the truth is that 26 year old fighter now needs to take control of his life and sort himself out before his throws his career away. He has the ability to be a must watch fighter, as does his brother Hiroto Kyoguchi (7-0, 6) [京口 紘人] who is set to fight for a world title later this month, but needs to sort his actions out and really make the most of his ability, before he destroys his career altogether.
