12/31 Yarennoka - Aoki`s opponent set

Thursday, 27 December 2007

Yarennoka has announced Aoki`s opponent. It is Jung Bukyung. Bukyung won a silver in the Sydney Olympics for Judo and could prove a worthy opponent. However, I am worried that Aoki is heavier than Bukyung. I am not sure how much weight Bukyung has out on since the Olympics, but according to Fight Opinion, he was fighting at 60kg. Aoki normally fights at 75-80 kg, so this could prove significant.

Aoki vs. Calvan would be a much better match-up, but can Bukyung provide another surprise this year? It is possible.

Nightmare of Battle has some interesting background information on Bukyung.
