A private showing of the upcoming boxing movie "Ashita no Joe" (official release on February 11th) was held at TOHO Cinemas Namba, Osaka on February 4th, and some of the cast members (Yamashita Tomohisa, Iseya Yusuke, Kagawa Teruyuki) showed up at the stage greeting.

At the private showing, Hasegawa Hozumi, who is a professional boxer and the current WBC Featherweight Champion, made an appearance as a special guest, and he put the green champion belt on Yamashita's shoulder.  Hasegawa's guest appearance was requested by Yamashita when they co-stared in the Kansai local TV program "Seyanen" last month.

Hasegawa said about Yamashita's Joe, "After I saw his one-two (punching), it was easy to tell that he really did practice for it.  It is very difficult, although it looks easy, but his punch was beautiful and I was fascinated watching it."  Hasegawa also said about Iseya, "I was very touched to see his body after the diet.  I have not seen even any pro boxers who worked out the body that much."

After getting compliments from the champion, both Yamashita and Iseya could not hold back their happiness.
