Over the last few years the Kadoebi gym has been piling up a lot of notable talent, that has transferred from other gyms. Today they've announced that their acquisition spree isn't over, and in fact they may have signed the pick of the bunch, as Japanese Super Flyweight-come-Bantamweight Seiya Tsutsumi (5-0, 4) [堤聖也] joins the stable.
The heavy handed, exciting and aggressive Tsutsumi was a stand out amateur, going 84-17 (40) in the unpaid ranks, before turning professional at the Watanabe gym in 2018 and debuting in March with an opening round win over a Thai visitor Alongkon Kaisi.
Less than 6 months after Tsutsumi's debut he stopped Junpei Inamoto to claim a B class tournament win and was 4-0 (3) at the end of 2018, with experience of bouts in Thailand and China.
So far this year Tsutsumi has fought only 112 seconds, blasting out Filipino foe Ryan Rey Ponteras back in April, but his next bout will be on November 9th, as he takes on Kenya Yamashita (14-5, 11) [山下賢哉] in the God's Left Tournament semi-final. A win there will put him in the final next year against either Kazuki Nakajima (7-0, 6) [中嶋一輝] or Jin Minamide (4-0, 3) [南出仁].
Having been huge fans of Tsutsumi, his style and his aggression since his debut, and would suggest others take note of this incredibly exciting young fighter.
