Jerome Le Banner has been poking at a "world tour" of sorts lately, starting with his win over Andrei Kirsanov at the end of last year in Thailand. The event was called the Le Banner tour. Now there's a Le Banner series, and it's actually determining who will fight Jerome some time next year.
The website is up for it at www.lebannerseries.com. According to the website, there will be four tournaments and four major fights at each tournament. Each fight is five rounds of two minutes (Which sucks.).
The winners of the tournaments will fight and the winner of that will face Jerome Le Banner some time in 2013. The goal of the Le Banner Series is to determine Le Banner's successor and find the next new best European kickboxer.
The first event is on April 28 in Geneva, Switzerland where Le Banner defeated Stefan Leko last year. As for Le Banner fighting on the card, it seems uncertain but he is front and center on the poster. Frank Munoz vs. Stephane Susperregui seems to be happening at the event. Jerome Le Banner is coming off a loss to Errol Zimmerman on March 23 and will fight Rustemi Kreshnik on June 30 under the It's Showtime banner.
