This week saw K-1 Japan’s last show of the year with ramifications heading into K’Festa.01 in March. The K’Festa show is their biggest event to date, with the promotion looking to bring the K-1 name back into the limelight in the land of kakutougi and beyond. In the main event Hinata battled Hirono Yu for the chance to challenge K-1 Super Welterweight (70kg) Champion Chingiz Allazov in March. Now you can watch it here. As always, the entirety of the show has made its way to their YouTube channel.
K-1 Japan capped off their successful 2017 with another edition of Survival Wars, where Hirono Yu and Hinata fought for the right to challenge Chingiz Allazov for the K-1 Japan 70kg title in March at K’Festa at the Saitama Super Arena. Hinata was able to pull off the big victory, meaning that we’re heading towards a Hinata/Allazov showdown on one of the most stacked cards that we’ve seen in years that goes down in March. 【K-1 WORLD GP】12.27（水）後楽園 スーパー・ウェルター級次期挑戦者決定戦日菜太（@hinata0826）vs廣野祐(@Yu__HIRONO)試合ハイライト📹https://t.co/yIaAknCgSP#AbemaTV#k1_wgp pic.twitter.com/vvZseM0mc0 — K-1/Krush/KHAOS【公式】 (@k1wgp_pr) December 27, 2017 Hinata (R3 – Majority Dec) Hirono Yu Tsubakihara Tatsuya (R3 – Majority Dec) Saikyo [read more]
