Short term After this embarrassment (let's be honest, this is the worst case scenario for Tenshin), I suppose a logical route is to give him a can to crush to rebuild his confidence, but he is scheduled to fight in the Rise World Series tournament filled with fighters that have given him hell be it Suakim or Rodtang. So I guess the promoter will give him the easiest fight in the tournament (random champ from Europe). Long term His boxing career path is kind of death at this point. His original plan was to continue kickboxing, while kickstarting his boxing career in the US (The commission in Japan does not allow you to do both in Japan simultaneously). Well, I guess he is going to continue kickboxing, while moonlighting as a mma fighter. Anyway, Happy New Year everyone and hopefully 2019 will be a much better year for kickboxing fans than 2018.
