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."
