Here is what Katsuma Akitsugi had to say about his upcoming fight with Dinong, training camp with coach Eddie Hernandez, and more.
On his recent training camp:
“I’ve been training non-stop since my last fight in September and now it’s time to get busy again. I feel I’m hitting with more power as I’m learning to sit on my punches and my coach Eddie Hernandez is working on a lot of fundamentals. I stay ready all the time so fans can expect me to be at my best when I step in the ring. All the hard work will be on display on fight night.”
On his matchup with Arnold Dinong:
“This will be my toughest opponent to date, but it’s a fight I believe I can win. Dinong is undefeated for a reason, he’s a very skilled fighter and I'm going to make this fight a war and force him to clash with me. I hope he’s ready for a dog fight because I’m not going to let him breathe.”
On what a win will do for his career:
“A win against Dinong will certainly put propel me to bigger opportunities. I’m hoping a victory will get me one step closer to being ranked in the top 15 of a sanctioning body and I know I have a long way to go, but a win against another undefeated fighter can only help my career.”
On fighting on 3.2.1. Boxing for the second time:
“I’m grateful for the opportunity that Thompson Boxing Promotions has given me once again. I know right now it’s very difficult to get a fights, so I’m very thankful.
