K-1’s Japan contingent have promised us what looks to be a pretty amazing card on January 18th. The event features a classic K-1 one night tournament, this time at 60kg. It features a mix of names that we know from the Japanese scene to some heavy hitters from around the world including Javier Hernandez, Karim Bennoui and Denis Puric.
The rest of the card is an awesome, eclectic mix of styles with some really fascinating fights on the card. Kaew Fairtex vs. Minoru Kimura is an awesome, awesome fight and I’m very happy to see Sanny Dahlbeck back in the mix against the very awesome Yoshihiro Sato. This event will be broadcast on NicoNico on the 18th.HW: Manabu vs Fujita Tomoya60kg: Yuma vs Kanbe Shota65kg: Goto Masanobu vs Saito Yuta65kg: Hiramoto Ren vs Ishikawa Yuki60kg GP Reserve Fight: TOSHI vs Kim Hun Jae60kg GP: Shimano Kotaro vs Javier Hernandez60kg GP: Urabe Hirotaka vs Karim Bennoui60kg GP: Yamamoto Masahiro vs Gagny Baradji60kg GP: Urabe Koya vs Denis Puric65kg: Kaew Fairtex vs Kimura Minoru70kg: Sato Yoshihiro vs Sanny Dahlbeck55kg: Takiya Shota vs Shou Rong55kg: Tobe Ryuma vs Horio Ryuji
