Masahiko Kondo - "Challenger"
This weeks boxing related song is a bit of an oddity as we couldn't find an official music video of the song, which we suspect would have contained some boxing related footage, but we have come across as a live performance.
The track is recorded by Masahiko Kondo, aka "Matchy", who is a man with his fingers in numerous pies, from singing to being a former racing car driver, an actor and a racing car manager.
In 2005 he released his first new single in 7 years, "Challenger", and it's a song that has more than a passing reference to boxing in it. From a translation of the lyrics it appears to tell the tale of a young aspiring boxer picking up the sport to reaching higher heights.
A bit of an oddity, but certainly a more enjoyable track than "Uppercut" was last week.
Some things don't fit in elsewhere on the site so have been put here as a result.
