K-1 Announces K-1 World Tour

  • Written by Dave Walsh

K-1K-1 has been rather quiet for most of 2013 so far, outside of running the K-1 World Grand Prix Finals for 2012 in March in Croatia. Other than the crowning of Mirko Cro Cop as the K-1 World Grand Prix Champion they have been focusing on their K-1 World Qualifying Tour events, which are focused on bringing the best available talent from certain regions into the K-1 fold for use in their bigger tournaments.

Much in the same vein, they announced today that they will be kicking off a "K-1 World Tour" series of events, which will be aimed at running smaller shows in as many countries as they can and crowning champions in multiple weight classes, something that we've been looking forward to for a while now. Those weight classes are -63kg, 70kg, 85kg, 95kg and Heavyweight/Super Heavyweight. It sounds like they are looking to make these smaller K-1 events serve almost as a farm league for the bigger K-1 shows and to develop talent, which seems like a great idea for the time being, as many of the established names are in GLORY at the moment, but there is still a ton of developing talent out there fresh for the picking.
