Part of a recurring theme in what Tosaki Miyazawa is looking for in STARKNESS it seems, is tough men with star quality. Few are like Yukio Toshiro, ostensibly a giant in the world of puroresu due to his fearsome size, but coupled with an unquenchable penchant for violence and seriousness dripping from every pore. Earlier in his career, Toshiro competed in several combat-based sports in Japan and abroad, namely MMA and Judo. Upon entering the world of puroresu, he found success in many small promotions – and there is no doubt he will use the experience from competing at a high level in STARKNESS.
|Tosaki Miyazawa: <’One thing I have always loved in puroresu is when you look at someone and even without seeing one of their matches you say ‘Ooh, I bet he’s a badass.’ That’s exactly what I said when I first saw Toshiro-san. Wow, what a specimen. Something about the vibe, the aura in guys like him, you can’t replicate it or manufacture it, you know? Epically violent, uh. He’s unbelievably tough, resilient and stubborn as f**k! I’m very much looking forward to seeing what he has in store for STARKNESS.’>|
