Bread Club leader Satoshi Kojima took to Twitter to laud the resilience of New Japan Young Lion Shota Umino. Umino went nearly 15 minutes in a punishing match with Daisuke Sekimoto and was still smiling the next day.
Training, end. I encountered Shota Unno. Last night’s game was “licked”, Shota said with a (^ ^) smile. You must be strong!! You can play with Daisuke Sekimoto and smile the next day. Hang on, ‼️.
