The second in our "themed" 5 Bouts to enjoy during Isolation series focuses on break out wins. These are, for us, the bouts that really made us realise that fighters we were watching were something special. Whether that was in their potential to go all the way, or just the special type of fighters that we feel are must watch.
For this particular series of fights all 5 are Japanese bouts, and they feature 3 men who went on to win world titles, one winning a world title in the bout we've featured, and one we have very high hopes for, still!
These are a nice blend of destructive action skills, and a chance to see some talent before the fighters became success stories.
Seiya Tsutsumi (2-0, 2) vs Junpei Inamoto (2-0, 1)

Thinking Out East
With this site being pretty successful so far we've decided to open up about our own views and start what could be considered effectively an editorial style opinion column dubbed "Thinking Out East" (T.O.E).
