Some fighters prefer to train in exhausting workout sessions in deserted places. And then there is Ikuhisa Minowa, who prefers to train by participating in the Japanese qualifying tournament round of the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in Tokyo. Minowa was able to get 6 hot dogs in 12 minutes, while the winner savaged 19 hot dogs in 12 minutes. Minowa said that at first it was both delicious and painful to eat the hot dogs, but it quickly became “hot dog hell” for him.
