Finally I finished editing! It took me a while – life has been hectic – but here it is. Maximo Blanco, filmed in Tokyo last year. Short and sweet, like a lot of his fights (as someone pointed out!)
We originally went to Yoshida Dojo to talk to Nakamura Kazuhiro (also yet to be edited) and interviewing Maxi was a welcome surprise. Truly a gent. I wasn’t that familiar with him and after the interview I thought “What a lovely chap, I must look him up on youtube…” Jesus H Christ the man is an animal.
Maximo Blanco is an up and coming phenom currently fighting for Sengoku Raiden Championships.
A whirlwind of violence in the ring, Maximo is a gentle, engaging, and funny person outside of it.
I leave the talk about current and future fights, and up-to-the-minute news to the other news sites and interviewers. With each video I make I try to give you a slice of the subject’s life, what motivates and inspires them.
Maximo is from Venezuela but was scouted to wrestle in Japan, and has since found his home with SRC.
