Takanori Gomi

Takanori Gomi

Without a doubt, Takanori Gomi is one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world. Displaying outstanding boxing and wrestling skills, Gomi has torn up the 161-pound weight class since his debut in 1998 at age 20. Previous to his fighting career, Gomi was an avid baseball player (pitcher) in school. Gomi began his boxing training at the Sagamihara Yonekura gym in Japan in 1994 (while in junior high). In 1996 Gomi began his wrestling training and then joined the Shooto gym in 1997 in order to train as a mixed martial arts fighter. After a remarkable amateur career, Gomi won the Shooto welterweight championship in 2001 by defeating former teammate Rumina Sato. From there he went on to gain wins over the likes of Dokonjonosuke Mishima and Chris Brennan. Today Gomi looks to become the king of the lightweights.
