Arguably the most talked-about and easily the most maligned of the participants on this Tuesday's DREAM.9 card, 40/40 clubber turned steroid snitch Jose Canseco touched down at Narita Airport outside of Tokyo earlier today. There had been speculation as to whether Canseco would back out of his fight with 7'2" Hong Man Choi.
Canseco was all smiles as he greeted a throng of press, exclaiming how happy he was to be in Japan. He also briefly discussed his training and gameplan for his Super Hulk Tournament opponent:
“I don’t even know whether my punches can reach Choi’s head or not. While having a tight defense and using my footwork well to move around, I will take him down and end it on the ground with a submission.”
He also said that he has trained his punches, kicks, etc. at 3, 4 gyms near his house and has focused especially on stamina because of the 10 minute first round.
