K-1 Japan 90kg Championship Tournament Fight Card for September 24th

K-1 Japan returns on September 24th with the K-1 Japan 90kg Championship Tournament. It’s another step into the upper weights, which K-1 Japan tends to stumble with a bit. We saw a heavyweight GP last year that provided some excitement and it should come as no shock that much of this tournament includes talent that has doubled as heavyweights for the promotion. That, of course, is just sort of the icing on the cake for the event, as the lower weight classes are always there to entertain us. That includes TAKERU vs. Daniel Puertas, Takei Yoshiki and KOJI vs. Stauro [read more]

KNOCK OUT Summer Fes.2018 to Be Streamed in English

Japanese kickboxing was at one time the alpha and omega in the world of professional kickboxing. Since the fall of FEG’s K-1 in 2011 the sport has fragmented and split up among regions, with promotions like GLORY, Kunlun and K-1 Japan leading the pack when it comes to international presence.

It makes sense, too, considering that Bushiroad has seen surprising [read more]

KLF 75 Results: The Final 8 is Sort of Set, Superbon Fight Delayed

Kunlun Fight 75 happened this weekend in a long evening full of some of the world’s best 70kg competitors. Along the way some of the best in the world were eliminated from the tournament while a few darkhorses entered the fray in the coming Kunlun Fight 70kg championship tournament. The final 8 is not yet complete, though, as Superbon Banchamek was forced to withdraw from KLF 75 due to a muscle strain, with the fight against Nayanesh Ayman happening at KLF 76 on September 9th now, instead.
