Inoki returns

By Zach Arnold | June 26, 2006

Print Friendly and PDF

Sports Nippon reports that there will be a special show on 9/1 at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Antonio Inoki vs. Muhammad Ali fight that took place on June 26, 1976. Sankei Sports notes that the 9/1 Budokan show will be a “new kakutougi (MMA) event” for Inoki, the first show since the infamous Inoki Bom-Ba-Ye 2003 show at Kobe Wing Stadium. The events that surrounded the Inoki 2003 show have led to the chaos that we are seeing unfolding right now in Japan.

A week after the 9/1 Budokan show, Inoki will lead his team in the IFL versus Matt Lindlan’s team at the IFL’s event in Portland, Oregon.
