Kazuo Misaki To Be Suspended Following Next Fight By Sengoku


From Bloodyelbow.com:

World Victory Road held a press conference at J-Rock headquarters on Thursday to announce the fate of Kazuo Misaki following last week's guilty plea and probation sentence on a count of interference with a public servant. The short-term good news is that Misaki will still be able to participate in his August 2nd middleweight title eliminator bout with Kaz Nakamura. The bad news, however, is that the Sengoku executive committee has decided that Misaki will be indefinitely suspended beginning August 3rd – meaning Misaki won't get a rematch with Jorge Santiago even if he wins – with his entire purse from the Nakamura fight to be withheld and donated to charity. With this verdict, it seems a fairly safe bet that we'll be seeing the “Grabaka Hitman” back in the Strikeforce cage before long.
