Ex-NFL lineman tops bill for Pyongyang fight night
"It's all the brainchild of Kanji "Antonio" Inoki, a savvy showman and charismatically eccentric Japanese politician who is one of the only members of Japan's parliament who supports — and actively participates in — exchanges of any kind with North Korea. Inoki, who has visited North Korea nearly 30 times, was suspended by parliament for a month after making an unauthorized trip to the North last year.
The square-jawed, 6-foot-3 Inoki, serving his third term in Japan's parliament, is probably best remembered elsewhere for fighting Muhammad Ali in Tokyo in 1976. But in 1995, he fought American Ric Flair in the "Collision in Korea," a two-day event held in Pyongyang's huge May Day Stadium that drew a reported 380,000 spectators. It was the biggest pay-per-view event in pro-wrestling history. Ali was among the guest attendees."
