Here’s another one of my favorite matchups from this year’s Red Bull BC-One b-boy competition in Tokyo: Pluto from Ukraine versus Luigi of the USA. Pluto and Luigi have similar styles, including good floorwork, uprocking, and power. I’m still not sure how I would call this match.
It’s interesting how frosty the reception of the Japanese audience is to Pluto, who just a few minutes ago beat the hometown favorite Taisuke. Also kind of amazing that in the first round of prelims all of the Japanese and Koreans got eliminated, despite the amazingly high level of dance in both of those countries!
Big ups to Luigi for style, power, and creativity in his sets, and Pluto for giving 200%. Awesome match.
