[AJPW News] All Japan held a press conference with Masanobu Fuchi and the new Asia Tag champs in Jun Akiyama & Yoshinobu Kanemaru.
Fuchi was up first as he announced that Ultimo Dragon will be defending the World Junior belt at the Okinawa show on February 23. Ultimo will defending the belt against the winner of the Jr. BATTLE OF GLORY, or a self appointed challenger, if he happens to win the league himself.
Fuchi then announced that he will not be competing during the February tour as he will be undergoing cataract surgery on his right eye.
Jun Akiyama and Yoshinobu Kanemaru then came in as the newly crowned Asia Tag champs. Akiyama stated that that they will be looking to recruit any worthy challenger teams from other promotions in Japan. Currently the duo does not have a first defense in line, so Akiyama has taken it upon himself to open the doors for the “Asia” Tag belts to be defended across a broader playing field.
Yoshinobu Kanemaru then stated that he is looking towards being a dominant player in the Jr. League as he has swore to recapture the World Jr. belt from Ultimo Dragon.
