[div class=”notice” class2=”icon”]The following is from an article on MMA-Japan, part of the MiddleEasy Network.[/div]
This is a name you are going to see us writing a lot of going forward and a name you have seen me drop a few times in the past (namely when he is fighting). Kyoji Horiguchi is not only the top prospect out of KrazyBee, Kid Yamamoto’s camp, but he is one of the, if not the, top prospect to come out of Japan these days. In a time when those words are not seen placed next to each other (top prospect and Japan), this says a lot about the little guy.
His most recent win came at Shootor’s Legacy 04 in which he put Naohiro Mizuno to the mat and then finished him in excruciating fashion. Basically what it came down to was Horiguchi landing such a vicious barrage of punches that Mizuno is still likely feeling his ears ring and seeing stars, similar to your Tom and Jerry cartoon.
It would not surprise us in the least if we see Horiguchi make the jump to a bigger stage soon. His killer instinct is something that fight promoters worldwide love. They also love people who finish fights, something that Horiguchi seems to know how to do very well.
Our boy IQWrestler made, yet another highlight video, this time of the bantamweight doing what he does best – destroying people in the ring.
