Justin Wong says he's the player to beat at this year's EVO In a move that's sure to make this year's EVO Fighting Game Championship more interesting, Justin Wong stated he beat Daigo Umehara in Japan 10-4 during a Twin Galaxies interview.


Justin isn't bashful when he talks about his skill set, claiming he's the player to beat at this year's World EVO Finals. Here's a clip from the interview.
Twin Galaxies: In the International Finals round of the Tournament, you lost to Daigo Umehara. Tell us about that experience.

Justin Wong: I lost to Daigo at the International Exhibition. If that was a real tournament, I would have changed to my counter character. He uses Ryu, and Ryu counter’s Rufus. Don’t get me wrong, Daigo is REALLY good; maybe too good. For someone like me, though, he's just my peer; I know what can beat him and what can't. A lot of people don't know this, but I went to Japan and beat him 10-4. It’s the truth. If someone says it’s a lie I'll go back to Japan again, because I'm going anyway, and I'll beat him again.
Was Justin not tipping his hand, or is there more to the story here?
