Hidehiko Yoshida continues to fight in Sengoku Light Heavyweight

Sportsnavi reported Sunday that Hidehiko Yoshida decided to continue fighting.

Yoshida held an event "VIVA JUDO" at Yoshida Dojo in Kanagawa on February 15. After being defeated by Sanae Kikuta on January 4, he was wondering whether or not he quit fighting. "I was very disappointed about my loss and had mixed feeling. I learned that I lost my endurance because of reducing weights in a short period of time." He said Kazushi Sakuraba called and motivated him to continue. "I'm not ready to fight in March and May, and not sure if I fight in July, but I keep fighting in the light heavyweight. Next time I spend extra time to adjust my weight."
