Guam - Spike 22's Kyle Aguon will be headlining PXC 40 this Friday
at the U.O.G Field House when he takes on Japan Fighter Michinori Tanaka for
the 135-pound title. It's been a long road for Aguon who finally gets his shot
at bringing home the belt.
Aguon said, "After the last fight I just went straight into
training again. That coming Monday from that fight with Russell Doane I was
already in shape so I kept it consistent and everything stayed the same. I
stayed here for my camp, Spike 22 and concentrated on wrestling. Tanaka is a
great scrambler so I just did everything, jiu-jitsu, wrestling and boxing. I've
been trying to play on my back more because I know he's a great wrestler so if
he puts me on my back I'll be ready for anything. I had my ups and downs and I
lost a couple of fights and I was number 1 contender a couple of times but I
didn't get to fight for the belt but this is my time now. There are no belts
here on Guam and there are no belts here at Spike so I'm bringing that belt back
to Spike and here back to Guam."
With the home turf advantage on his side, Kyle is eager to get
into the cage and put his wrestling to the test against Tanaka who will be
defending his title for the first time in hostile territory.
Aguon said, "Walking up those stairs with the smoke coming
out and everyone is screaming your name I can't even explain that feeling. All
the pressure is coming on to me but it just motivates me to want to win. This
is going to be my time so once I walk into that ring I'm just concentrated on
that guy and nothing else."
