gonokickAkihiro Gono held a public practice today as he trains at the Saenchai Muay-Thai Gym in preparation for his upcoming March 19th Krush match against K-1's Yuya Yamamoto.

Don't think that the longtime staple of Japanese MMA is totally out of his element when it comes to kickboxing, he is a former All-Japan Kickboxing Heavyweight champion.

Last year in MMA, Gono defeated Sweden's Diego Gonzalez at Sengoku 12 and and then dropped down to Lightweight for Sengoku 14 only to lose to former K-1 veteran and SRC training player Jadamba Narantungalag.

It'll be fun to see Gono return to kickboxing, the question is can he hang in with the much more experienced Yamamoto? Either way this is great exposure for the Krush promotion as they continue to roll out quality events.

 

Here's the video of Akihiro Gono's AJKF Heavyweight title fight against Kazushi Nishida.
