All these interviews are in Japanese...but for those of you that come here regularly, you know how I am doing. There are a few pictures though, if you want to know anything then just write in. I am getting ready to fly out on Thursday, and before that I need to do my final preparations. So I will be spending some quality time in the gym today and tomorrow, at least it has turned clouded in the weather and cooled down quite a lot. Saturday's run in the park was a killer because of the heat. When it get's hot in Japan, it get's really hot...And with the humidity it is hardly to stand, we have been sweating like crazy in the gym for so long now I can hardly remember how it is to train when it is cool in the air. There is no air conditioner in the gym and all we got is this one fan that blows and one small area of the gym floor, so it is not what you would call effective. But these are the conditions I have been training under for years and years, I have come to think that if it wasn't like that I wouldn't be doing it right...I guess what I am trying to say is that I am ready for this fight, and with the opponent being Peter Aerts I have trained really hard and just want to give it everything I have. I will try and keep posting up until the fight, but I don't know how much time I will actually spend in front of the computer in the next week.

I wonder what you are thinking?

I have been pondering the effect of me helping out Bob in the ring recently...I think that many people have different ideas of how things work in this business, but I also feel that many fail to see what really goes on behind the scenes. I can understand that he has been made out to be somewhat of an abomination, but I can truly tell you that he is more professional in his ways that any other fighter out there. That is why he is not a fighter but a showman, but he is a very good showman. If it was his game plan to make everyone hate him, then he has succeed it to it's fullest. I don't know if any of you have seen the movie with Jim Carey, where he portrays an American comedian. He keeps doing these pranks, and every time he does them he ends up in trouble. With him you never really knew where the line was, because he started way over the line ahead of everyone else. Anyway, I forget the title of the movie, but this guy started to wrestle women for entertainment. And he did a great job of getting the whole country to hate him, but at the end of the day it was all just a joke. Sometimes the joke just wasn't for everybody, but only to be understood by the people on the inside. During this time, he was one day challenged by the Male wrestling champion and almost got himself killed in the ring. Taking the whole incident to court and using the media to make a huge thing about the whole incident. But it was all in the name of great pro. wrestling! He had me fooled! And I think that he also had the rest of America fooled, and that my friends is great entertainment. I myself am not much for it, because it is not what I can do professionally. But regardless of everything, Bob has done some quite amazing things in his record of fighting, and they are all undeniable. So maybe it is time to see past all the laughing and posing, all the big talk and dig a bit deeper and look at what is actually going on. Given the chance this guy could actually make the transformation from big mouth to big fighting...I have know him for a long time, and I recently found out the depth of his professionalism. That is why I choose to stand by him, when none other would. He had me fooled is all I can say without breaching the confidentiality of our trust. And I am not talking about this last fight, he really went down. It was just not his day, and that is the simple truth of it. I hope that all the people involved are able to get together and finalise something that will see him back in the ring again. So that he will at least have a chance at some real redemption! At the end of the day people still want to take there photo with, or get an autograph and he never says no to any of that. He always has time for the fans, they are what made him to what he is today. He never forgets that, and seeing him with the press and the fans is just another side of who he is. Well, I was just hoping that maybe we could use a bit of some positive discussion, apart from the silence that I have been given lately...

Miss Universe 2007






I know that I am a bit late with this entry, but better now than never...
This picture is of the dress that Mori-san wore on the evening that she was crowned as the second Japanese women in history, as the winner of the Miss Universe 2007 ! It is designed by my good friend Yoshiyuki, and here are also a couple of shots from the celebration party after her return to Japan. Sorry to have to tell you that she personally wasn't able to make it to the party but at least her dress did...




この写真はYoshiyukiの店で撮りました、ちょっと情報は遅れているけど。。。何と今年もミス ユニバースでYoshiyukiは大活動していました。すばらしい着物をデサインされた森さんは46年ぶりに日本人としてミス ユニバースで選ばれました。おめでとうございます!写真はパーティーで撮ったんですが、本人はやっぱりどうしても時間がとれなくってこなかったです、残念。でも、これは実に言うと二回目YoshiyukiはMiss Universeで活動をしていた、昨年はしたの侍的な衣装を2になったちばなさんが来ていました。最近日本の女性は世界にぶつけています、そして勝っています。やっぱりクイントン タランチーノ監督は間違っていなかった、Kill Billでアジアの顔は強く押していたので今は日本の女性が世界から注文されるでしょう。自分は昔からそれを分かっているので、日本の女性をゲットして結婚して可愛い子供をいっぱい作りました。。。:)


Now this shot is of the dress that Yoshiyuki designed for last years entree', Chibana-san. She came in second and wore this half Ninja half Samurai outfit for the whole world to see. I would have liked to see her in it...I guess that when Quinten Tarantino pushed the Asian look on us all in Kill Bill, he knew what he was talking about. I have know about the beauty of Japanese women all along, and made sure that I got myself one and together we have made a whole bunch of great kids...:)

And then my new shorts are finally ready, so I will be wearing them in my next fight! Thank you so much.
