Josh Barnett heading for Japan

Monday, 27 July 2009

SportNavi has announced that Josh Barnett will make an appearance in IGF "GENOME 9 - Now is your chance" (losly translated). This is a pro-wrestling event and will take place on August 9 in Ariake Colosseum.

I am not going to go into the background here, but Barnett is a star in Japan and I have no doubts that his Japanese fans will be behind him.

Bob Sapp might also make an appearance in this event.

Kamipro says he'll be at the Pancrase show on 8/8 too...

Doesnt surprise me, I have seen him in Yuki Kondo's corner earlier. He is also very good at backing up Pancrase and always takes a lot of time for his fans there.

They should have him defend his Openweight King Of Pancrase title again, it's been 2-3 years since he actually has. As for IGF, he'll almost certainly win, the only question is who will "put him over" (lose to him).
