PXC CEO and Promoter, EJ Calvo, confirms that one of Japan’s outstanding fighters and the Shooto Pacific Rim Middleweight Champion, Keita “K-Taro” Nakamura, is the latest addition to the stacked PXC lightweight division.
EJ Calvo stated,
“Keita is a big addition to our PXC Lightweight roster and is expected to compete before year end in Manila. At 155 pounds, he should be one of the top ranked Asian MMA fighters on the planet!”
Nakamura brings with him an exceptional 25 wins with only 5 defeats and 2 draws. He is a talented fighter who can finish fights on the ground or on the feet. He is widely considered as one of the baddest men in Japan, as he holds an impressive wins over Nobutatsu Suzuki, Yasubey Enomoto, Yoshiyuki Yoshida, and Daisuke Nakamura.
Unlike other MMA fighters who started learning martial arts in their early age, the former Sengoku welterweight champion learned his first martial arts at the age of 18. Though started late, he catch up pretty quick as after a year of learning martial arts, he already made his first-ever pro MMA fight and dismantled his opponent in just 33 seconds of the first round.
The UFC vet Nakamura is a promising fighter who is a legit threat to anyone in the PXC lightweight division including the current champion, Harris “The Hitman” Sarmiento. I personally would love to see Nakamura make his PXC debut against a fighter who is equally as talented as he is in the likes of Frank Camacho Hong Seung Chan or Isaiah Ordiz.
There has been a several of world-class fighters joining the PXC in the past few weeks.The Guam-based MMA promotion first announced that the heavy-handed Frank “The Crank” Camacho re-signs with them. They’ve also proclaimed PXC that they inked a deal with Japanese wrecking machine, Masanori Kanehara, a very exciting fighter who has a notable wins over Michihiro Omigawa, Nirofumi Yamamoto and “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung. Then, another destructive fighter joins their always-exciting bantamweight roster as former KOTC flyweight champ Frank Baca looks to become a legit threat into one of the most exciting weight classes in the PXC.
