K-1 Japan continues to pump out the quality events on June 17th. This time around it’s the Featherweight Championship Tournament (57.5kg) featuring a one-night, eight-man tournament in addition to a few big superfights on the undercard. It’s K-1 Japan so they don’t mess around.
Hideaki Yamazaki against Jun Nakazawa, Rukiya Anpo proving that gym splits from K-1 Japan are in the end utterly meaningless but fighting Gonnapar isn’t, Kido vs. Glunder oh my, Minoru Kimua and Melsik ready to throw down, Noiri and Urabe fighting. That’s something to behold.
