Yoshihrio Akiyama was always destined for a career in martial arts. Picking up judo at just three years old, the Japanese legend went on to build an indelible legacy with multiple gold medals in international competitions. Having conquered the sport, “Sexy Yama” was ready for a new challenge and turned to the world of mixed martial arts. The welterweight warrior tore through the competition in Japan claiming the K-1 Light Heavyweight Grand Prix World Championship before taking his talents to North America’s biggest martial arts organization. Now, starting a new chapter on the greatest stage of martial arts, he will look to cement his legacy when he goes up against Malaysian sensation Agilan Thani at ONE: LEGENDARY QUEST in Shanghai.
