Krush consistently puts on good shows in Japan with some of the top lighter weight class talent in the world. While it may take a while for everyone outside of Japan to view their events, it's well worth it and Krush is currently working on making videos from their events more accessible.

We've got some good news, as Krush has six more events planned for the rest of the year. Their most recent event was on Krush.21 August 12, which saw Thomas Adamandopoulos defeat Ryuji Kajiwara for the Krush 63kg title and also saw Nobuchika Terado defeat Andy Howson for the ISKA 55kg K-1 rules title.

Krush has noticeably been bringing in more foreign opposition lately this year, much like they did for Krush.21. This is great as it lets us get a better grasp on who stands where in the lighter weight divisions and provides for some great fights and clashes of styles. Krush wants to develop more strong relationships with overseas promoters and continue to bring in international talent. They're open to any good fighters, no matter where they're from so promoters and managers around the world should be eager to get their fighters an international opportunity on a stage like Krush where they will be noticed.

Here's the tentative Krush schedule for the rest of the year:

August 26 - Nagoya

September 9 - Shinjuku

October 8 - Tokyo

October 21 - Shinjuku

November 10 - Tokyo

December 14 - Tokyo
