Although not a very famous boxer in the west Seisaku Saito was a former Japanese national Flyweight champion who later went on to have a very, very successful career as an actor. Sadly he passed away well before his time, though his legacy in Japan lives on due to his infinite charm, memorable tales and numerous TV and movie roles.
Although boxing fans may recognise him as Seisaku Saito others will likely know him as Hachiro Tako, the name he used on stage.
He was a genuinely big name in Japanese entertainment, so much so that that the prolific Japanese musician Kazuki Tomokawa, who was a personal friend of Saito's, recorded a song about him. The song title translates as "He was there-Yes! There was Tako Hachiro" and is a very personal and emotional sounding song.
The meaning is likely lost if you don't understand Japanese, but the emotional is very clear, and musically it's an enjoyable track despite the language barriers.
