"The Golden Star" will not let the injury slow him down.
Kota Ibushi was a part of the co-main event for New Japan Pro Wrestling's opening day of the G1 Climax 29 tournament in Dallas, Texas. Ibushi took on former GHC Heavyweight Champion KENTA and KENTA bested Ibushi. Kota took to Twitter and alerted his fans that he suffered an ankle injury during his match this past Saturday and noted that there were no fractures and he will not give up as long as he can continue moving forward.
The leg was clean bone without fractures! Is it a ligament? Is it sprain? Yesterday I walked 100 steps today, although I did not stop cold sweating in 30 steps. Because there was an abnormal natural self-healing ability + hyperbaric oxygen treatment to tomorrow 200 steps goal! I woke up because of the time difference and pain, so I will go to the first floor anytime. I will not give up as much as I can from where I can !
