Brand Ambassador:

I started boxing when I was freshman in college.​

 

I had never fought before.

I had never hit or been hit by anyone.

So why did I start?

My father is a former professional boxer known as the "Rocky of Naniwa*". I have always felt uncomfortable being compared to him, and so I never stepped into the ring. However, I have now decided to become a boxer. When I reconsidered my future and career, I thought to myself, "I need to step out of my comfort zone to test my potential and to know my true passion, purpose, and power." 

I lost in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics trial.

In 2021, I turned professional.

I want to fight to become stronger, both physically and mentally, and to do my best to express myself honestly and completely.
