On New Year’s Eve 2007 millions of Japanese viewers tuned in to watch one of the most anticipated fights of the year, K-1’s Dynamite Premium event. Among the competitors that night were amateur fighters in the Under 18 category, including newcomer Kizaemon Saiga who made a deadly introduction and officially started his professional career at age 17. Now, six-time world Karate Champion Saiga has abandoned his underdog status and is Japan’s youngest titleholder and K-1’s next rising prize fighter.
Saiga is photographed above for Rocksmith Tokyo in the December issue of Woofin’ Magazine wearing the Sno Life Boarding Jacket and Just Doin’ It Tee.
