EVO 2019: GO1 Beats Sonicfox, Becomes Champion of Db Fighterz and Bursts Into Tears

EVO 2019

Revenge is served. During the Dragon Ball FighterZ final at the EVO 2018 the Japanese pro gamer Goichi “GO1” Kishida had to surrender to his eternal rival Dominique “SonicFox” McLean, who won the champion title with a dry 3-0. At EVO 2019, however, things went differently.

The Dragon Ball FighterZ tournament at the 2019 EVO, despite not being able to count on the record numbers of last year, has also reserved a lot of surprises and heart-pounding matches. The attention of the spectators, in any case, was almost completely focused on SonicFox and GO1, two of the strongest Dragon Ball FighterZ players in the world. A rivalry that continues to thrill fans, also because the two are many different: SonicFox prefers an offensive strategy, while GO1 is a master of the art of defence.

The path to the final went smoothly for both, as neither of them suffered defeats. When they finally started to get serious, they didn’t disappoint the public, who was screaming at the same for both, apparently without favouring one or the other. During the first part of the final, it was SonicFox that dominated, which immediately took the lead by 2 to 0. GO1, however, did not give up, managing to overturn the result by imposing itself for 3 to 2 and graduating champion of Dragon Ball FighterZ at EVO 2019.

As the audience screamed its name, Goichi burst into tears of joy, writing another unforgettable chapter in the history of EVO and the eternal rivalry with SonicFox.
