  • Written by Dave Walsh

kyotaroFormer K-1 Heavyweight Champion Kyotaro Fujimoto continues his unbeaten streak in his boxing career with a win over Clarence Tillman on Wednesday in Osaka, bringing his post-K-1 boxing record to 4-0. Sadly no word on if he'd consider fighting for K-1 or Glory, but it seems like he is very comfortable within his new home of boxing and is being seen as a good prospect. has a breakdown of the bout.

"Kyotaro, eight years his junior at 26, was formerly a K-1 fighter, having scored some good victories prior to his entry into the international style fighting last year. The Japanese young man, handled by his manager Kenichi Hagimori, technically improved after training for three weeks in Perth, Australia, where he experienced good sparring sessions with big boys there at Harry’s Gym. Kyotaro swarmed over the slower Tillman from the outset, and averted his retaliation well with his faster footwork. The third saw Kyotaro pin him to the ropes with a fusillade of punches and deck him with a thud. The game New Zealander attempted to pull himself up, but failed to beat the count. We saw Kyotaro steadily improving in every fight."
