Rumor – Denis Kang vs. Kazushi Sakuraba On Sept. 17th


The following is a roughly translated version of an article in Portuguese from Portal do Vale Tudo:

After counting a little of its work as to manager in interview to the Vestibule of the Vale Tudo Magazine, Alex J. Davis entered in contact with us. With the end of Pride, many athletes are migrating for other events, and the fans wanted to know where walked the vice-champion of the Pride Bushido GP at 83kg, Denis Kang. The fighter finishes to sign a contract with the HERO's and goes to enter in the organization against the former champion of the Pride, always the dangerous Kazushi Sakuraba. The fight will be in day 17 of September, in Kanagawa, in the same show that will count on the ends of the HERO's.

Update: The above quote from part one of an interview with American Top Team's Alex Davis has been removed from the site. Part two is still online and available, here.

  • Here is an interesting quote from our exclusive interview with Denis Kang from Thursday of last week: (August 9th) Do you have anything coming up or have you just been training to hopefully fight in September.

    Denis Kang: There is going to be some announcements bro, but I can't tell you [laughs]. I'd love to tell you but I can't. I'm training to fight in September and that is all I can say right now.

    You can read the full Denis Kang interview in the interview archive section located here.

    The forums are already praying for Sakuraba's health.
