And Sakurai was a bit hot and cold and loss a few close decisions in his prime, but it always annoys me that he isnt mentioned when talking about Hughes & Andersons best wins. On his day was a tough fight for anyone
Love Kharitonov's fights with Semmy and Rizzo, brutal ass whoopings.

Sakurai was a very tough dude. Went into the two biggest fights of his career heavily injured, having suffered a car accident not too long before the Hughes match, and was pretty much limping his way to the ring against Gomi with a bad knee injury. Ofcourse it's not a wise idea going into big fights when your not 100%, but it does show a huge amount of balls on his part.
