Kawajiri: "I win this fight and make a great step forward to the champion belt."

Kamipro.com reported that Tatsuya Kawajiri invited the press and showed his training at JB Sports in Tokyo on May 15. Kawajiri faces J.Z.Calvan at Dream.9.

After showing his sparring and shadow boxing, he talked about his condition:
"Calvan is a complete fighter, and I barely see his weakness. However, I feel like I have been running with the wind at my back since NYE. I think all the effort I have been putting into my training finally begin to pay off. I believe I can win if I give my best. I win this fight and make a great step forward to the champion belt."
