  • Written by Dave Walsh

LekoJapan's RISE organization, one of the smaller kickboxing organizations that is known to work with K-1 and serve as one of their "feeder" organizations, much like KRUSH. RISE will be putting on an 8-man Heavyweight Tournament on November 23 at the Tokyo Dome City Hall. On their most recent show they held two qualifying bouts for the tournament, where Japanese kickboxing mainstay Hiromi Amada advanced as did Fabiano Cyclone.

The big story is that K-1 is sending in the big guns for this tournament, as they have sent American fighter Mighty Mo and the legendary Stefan Leko to participate in this tournament.

RISE will be holding more qualifying bouts on September 23. [source]
