On May 12th one of K-1's former best and brightest, Alexey Ignashov, makes his return to the ring after another absence. Alexey Ignashov's struggles are well-documented, as have been his returns to the ring over the past few years. He was given a big shot at K-1 glory again in 2010 before an injury in a qualifying tournament stole his opportunity to have another shot at the K-1 World Grand Prix. Never mind that his first fight back to K-1 was a return match against Badr Hari, which needless to say, he was not prepared for at the time.
Now on May 12th he comes back after about a year layoff, this time to Fight Code in Budapest. He takes on the competitive, yet undersized Ali Cenik in what should be a great fight.
