Akiyama has a horrible reputation in Japan, but I for one am a huge fan.
It was a shame in his last fight. He hurt Misaki bad and I guarentee if that was Akiyama the fight would have been stopped. Then he gets soccer kicked (Yes it was a soccer kick which was illegal) and loses the fight. Now if he had won by the same way what would the fall out have been again? He'd have probably been banned again. The guy just can't win.
