Speaking to reporters at a UNIQLO store launch he attended with wife Shin Yazawa, K-1 MAX champ Masato named Takanori Gomi and Tatsuya Kawajiri as opponents of interest for his upcoming July 13th bout at the K-1 World MAX Final 8 show. According to K-1, Masato's opponent for this bout will be chosen by the fans. He'll then face the winner of this year's K-1 World MAX tournament on New Year's Eve before retiring from competition. Kawajiri has dabbled in kickboxing recently, knocking out Kozo Takeda at last NYE's Dynamite!! show, but it's interesting that Gomi's name would be mentioned, as some are speculating that DREAM will look sign the former PRIDE and Sengoku ace after his May Shooto bout with Takashi Nakakura.

Two-time K-1 World MAX Champion Masato (53-6-2) and Fighting and Entertainment Group Event Producer Sadaharu Tanigawa held a press conference on Wednesday to announce the Japanese kickboxer's pending retirement. Masato has stoked retirement rumors for years, but there now appears to be a set gameplan: he will fight on July 13th at the Tokyo Budokan where he won his first title (possibly against Tatsuya Kawajiri), then face this year's K-1 MAX champion on New Years Eve in his final fight, a bout which he hopes will be at least 5 and up to 7 rounds. Before that, he will square off against K-1 Koshien (Under 18) fighter Hiroya (12-2) in a 3-minute exhibition bout at April's K-1 World MAX show.
