Default Full details on Kodo Fuyuki's death....Lots of Puroresu news

By Zach Arnold

Kodo Fuyuki officed died from rectal cancer at 6:50 PM in Yokohama on March 19th. Fuyuki was in a lull state at the hospital until 6:20 PM, when he took a turn for the worse and started having severe breathing problems. Last April, Fuyuki revealed that he was suffering from cancer of his large intestine. Surgery was performed to remove the cancer, but the cancer spread to Fuyuki's liver. Fuyuki was in critical condition over the last several days (right after his 3/11 Korakuen Hall show) and spent his last moments with his 39-year old wife at Yokohama city hospital. Mitsuharu Misawa, Kenta Kobashi, Yoshinari Ogawa, Kentaro Shiga, and other friends of Fuyuki (Kanemura, Kuroda, Chocoball Mukai, etc.) rushed to the hospital when they were informed that Fuyuki was dying (it has not been publicly confirmed if Fuyuki was taken from the hospital to his home to die at the last minute.) Fuyuki had a "retirement" match on 4/14/02 at Differ Ariake at a NOAH show. After the show, Fuyuki had surgery to try to remove the cancer. The surgery lasted over 7 and a half hours because Fuyuki's intestines were much larger than the average human being. Fuyuki tried every remedy in the book to fight cancer - from new-age treatments (Chinese medicine) to top-of-the-line medication with nasty effects, to even "supernatural power" treatments (think Andy Kaufman having his "surgery" in the Caribbean and being sold on the legitimacy of it). There's controversy as to whether or not one of the reasons the cancer spread from Fuyuki's large intestine to his liver is due to the fact that Fuyuki did not take anti-cancer drugs after the initial surgery in April. Fuyuki originally entered into Yokohama hospital at the end of February and stayed there for the rest of his life. Fuyuki was secretly granted permission to leave the hospital to attend his Korakuen Hall show on 3/11.

Yomiuri Sports list of recent pro-wrestling/MMA deaths:

- Giant Baba (1/31/99, age 61, bowel cancer)
- Jackie Sato (8/9/99, age 41, stomach cancer)
- Jumbo Tsuruta (5/13/00, age 49, bled to death on operating table in Quezon, Philippines while attempting to have liver transplant surgery. Tsuruta suffered from liver cancer and received a fresh liver literally hours after a young man, age 20, was killed at a store in a robbery. Tsuruta had skipped from Tokyo to Portland, then to Sydney & Brisbane Australia, and finally to Manila in the Philippines)
- Andy Hug (8/25/00, age 35, acute bone marrow/leukemia disease)
- Lou Thesz (4/29/02, age 86, complications from bypass heart surgery with pneumonia)
- Michiaki Yoshimura (2/15/03, age 76, respiratory ailments - organs shut down)

LLPW's 4/10 Ota Ward Gym show in Tokyo (5,000 seats) will be headlined by Shinobu Kandori & Momoe Nakanishi vs. Eagle Sawai & Amazing Kong.

U-STYLE announced the card line-up for their 4/6 Differ Ariake show in Tokyo. Line-up:

1. Hiroyuki Ito vs. Tomohiko Yoshida

3. Naoki Kimura vs. Katsuhisa Fujii
4. Takehiro Murahama vs. Kyosuke Sasaki
5. Wataru Sakata vs. Kazuki Okubo
6. Kiyoshi Tamura vs. Dokonjonosuk Mishima

Thursday's edition of Tokyo Sports newspaper printed a picture of Kodo Fuyuki three hours before he died. The paper claims that there is big momentum for Kazuyuki Fujita vs. Manabu Nakanishi for NJ's 5/2 Tokyo Dome show.

Day 12 of the Sumo basho at Osaka Prefectural Gym saw Asashoryu go to 9-3 by defeating Wakanosato (7-5) in 3 seconds. Chiyotaikai (10-2) maintained his lead by defeating Kaiho (5-7) in 2 seconds. Kaio (8-4) defeated Kyokushuzan (7-5) in 7 seconds.
