We continue with this rather strange break from boxing with another in our "boxer in music videos" series, unfortunately we've not come up with a catchier name. This time we use a singer who will be very familiar to Japanese fans, and in fact has often been heard in boxing circles. This video brings him together with a Japanese boxing icon and a Japanese baseball player, Matonobu Tanishige.
The singer in question is rapper AK-69, who's music has been used as walk on music by a number of Japanese fighters including Kazuto Ioka and Akira Yaegashi.
In the video for "Upside Down" we see Matonobu Tanishige discussing things with former WBA Super Featherweight champion Takashi Uchiyama [内山 高志]. Sadly the discussion is just in Japanese, with no English subtitles, but it's still interesting to see Uchiyama being featured in a video of such a big Japanese musical star.
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
