Cheers heaps for that sweet...thats really appreciated.
His fight with Kobayashi is on the Tube..he shows glimpses of very good technical ability and smooth movement as you said but at times he appeared a tad overwhelmed by the strength and workrate of Hiroshi...The fight is actually later in his career, though I think he was still in his mid 20's at that stage...It was at Kobayashi's best weight too.
I have watched that fight a few times, not so much recently..I never actually scored it but felt like Saijo outlanded Hiroshi, maybe not enough to pull ahead but seemed to me to be the more skilled operator.
