When talking about Street Fighter at a competitive level, we have to mention EVO tournament champions. Last year the main event was claimed by Luffy and his unique Rose, but today we will not talk about it (perhaps on another occasion). Let’s take a step one year back, where the tournament was ran on Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (Version 2012). It was there that a boy from Singapore named Ho Kun Xian came to “steal the show”.
Today Xian is 23 years old and his sponsor is nothing more and nothing less than Razor Inc. Debuting in the competitive scene in 2009 at DreamHack Winter where he reached 2nd place. Then later, on 2013, he was when he was crowned EVO 2013 champion (and CEO as well). Xian and his main character Gen maintain a high level of competitive wherever he makes presence.
EVO 2013 Champion, USF4’s Best Gen in the world, from Singapore, let’s meet a little bit about the one and only Xian.
