K-1 Announces World MAX Final 8 Event in Foshan, China

  • Published in K-1

K-1

If you were one of the people who saw the January 11th K-1 event, which serves as one half of the K-1 World MAX Final 8, and were a bit disappointed by it, K-1's announcement today makes up for that tenfold. Today K-1 held a press conference in China to announce the K-1 World MAX 2013 Quarter Final event in Foshan, China which takes place on December 28th. The event will air live on Hunan TV in China as well as across the globe via Epicentre.tv (like last time).

While the card for the January 11th event might be a bit threadbare to the untrained eye, this event is pretty stacked with some big names on the card. Here is the full card;

  • K-1 World MAX Final 8: Buakaw Banchamek vs. Zhou Zhi Peng
  • K-1 World MAX Final 8: Andy Souwer vs. Enriko Kehl
  • Kong Hong Xing (China) vs. Saenchai (Thailand)
  • Li Ning (China) vs. Sutin (Thailand)
  • Han Kai Hu (China) vs. Chengrob (Thailand)
  • Zhang Kai Yin (China) vs. Rachen (Thailand)
  • Xie Lei (China) vs. Pasol (Philippines)

Saenchai is another huge win for K-1, especially after signing Buakaw Banchamek a few months ago, with this whole China show being a win. It is being viewed as the beginning of a new era for K-1 as they are looking to potentially make China their new home for their big events.

Andy Souwer vs Bovy Sor Udomson 2010

  • Published in Video

This was a quarter-final match-up in the 2010 S-Cup.

Andy Souwer is a two time S-Cup champion and was a heavy favorite to win the fight and progress to the finals. He typically fights a cerebral, point-scoring game that increases in pace as the rounds go on. This is in stark contrast to the damage-absorbing, Terminator style of his opponent.

Bovy Sor Udomson is a legend of Muay Thai with a reputation for being somewhat inhuman in the ring. His uncompromisingly aggressive style won him the Rajadamnern belt at the young age of 19, but his career peaked quickly because of the damage he took. He's moved up slowly in weight from 122 lb super bantamweight to continue fighting at 67-70 kg, 147-154 lb, though with obviously dimmed reflexes.

Bovy wears blue gloves here and Andy the red.
