Andy Souwer Out - Christopher Mena in K-1 MAX Final 8

K-1

A bit of a streak of bad luck struck K-1, who has split the K-1 World MAX Final 8 into two upcoming events, this weekend as both Andy Souwer and Enriko Kehl were forced to pull out from the December 28th event in Foshan, China. Souwer, who was ready to go, suffered from a bout of appendicitis late last week which forced him into the hospital where they had to perform a routine but emergency surgical procedure to remove the troubled organ. Souwer is resting comfortably and healing up but will not be ready in time for either event, so he has had to pull out. Enriko Kehl fought Buakaw Banchamek last weekend and received a rather nasty cut on his forehead which will not be healed up in time for December 28th.

So the fight between Andy Souwer and Enriko Kehl will obviously not happen, but that doesn't mean that all hope is lost. Oh no. K-1 has been prepared in case of such an emergency and was quick to do some shuffling, as Shane Campbell will now be fighting on the December 28th event against the winner of the Reserve bout from September, Christopher Mena. That left Maximo Suarez without an opponent, which, yes, you figured it out, his new opponent is Enriko Kehl.

So that means that the awesome fight between Shane Campbell and Maximo Suarez won't happen, but who knows, there is always next round, right?

K-1 Announces World MAX Final 8 Event in Foshan, China

K-1

If you were one of the people who saw the January 11th K-1 event, which serves as one half of the K-1 World MAX Final 8, and were a bit disappointed by it, K-1's announcement today makes up for that tenfold. Today K-1 held a press conference in China to announce the K-1 World MAX 2013 Quarter Final event in Foshan, China which takes place on December 28th. The event will air live on Hunan TV in China as well as across the globe via Epicentre.tv (like last time).

While the card for the January 11th event might be a bit threadbare to the untrained eye, this event is pretty stacked with some big names on the card. Here is the full card;

  • K-1 World MAX Final 8: Buakaw Banchamek vs. Zhou Zhi Peng
  • K-1 World MAX Final 8: Andy Souwer vs. Enriko Kehl
  • Kong Hong Xing (China) vs. Saenchai (Thailand)
  • Li Ning (China) vs. Sutin (Thailand)
  • Han Kai Hu (China) vs. Chengrob (Thailand)
  • Zhang Kai Yin (China) vs. Rachen (Thailand)
  • Xie Lei (China) vs. Pasol (Philippines)

Saenchai is another huge win for K-1, especially after signing Buakaw Banchamek a few months ago, with this whole China show being a win. It is being viewed as the beginning of a new era for K-1 as they are looking to potentially make China their new home for their big events.

GLORY Releasing GLORY 12 Super Fight Series Fights on Saturday

Glory

Trust us, we get it, the whole Super Fight Series thing is mildly confusing at times, as it is basically like old pro wrestling events where you go to a live show but before hand another show is taped, which will air at a later date, while the main show will air live. That is basically what happens at GLORY live events right now and can create some mild confusion when it comes to what actually constitutes a numbered GLORY event or not.

Anyway, we are almost two weeks past GLORY 12 and now this weekend we can expect to see the GLORY Super Fight Series from GLORY 12 on GloryWorldSeries.com. This means that the six undercard fights that you've been waiting for will be available starting this Saturday. Enjoy.

K-1 Announces First of Two K-1 World MAX 2013 Final 8 Events

K-1

K-1 issued a press statement today announcing what will be the first of two K-1 World MAX 2013 Final 8 events, as we previously had announced that they'd be splitting the Final 8 into two separate events. Oddly enough, the event announced today is actually the second of the two events, with the first event being rumored to be taking place on either December 28th or 30th in China featuring Buakaw Banchamek and Andy Souwer. Regardless, the event announced today will go down on January 11th and feature four of the participants of the Final 8 (which also tells us who'll be competing in December by process of elimination).

The K-1 World MAX 2013 Quarter Finals in Spain will happen on January 11th, 2014 from Gran Canaria, Spain and will once again be streamed live on Epicentre.tv. The event is again involving Street Culture as the promoter, which makes sense due to the locale, with the card as follows;

  • K-1 MAX Quarter Final: Elam Ngor vs. Lee Sung-Hyun
  • K-1 MAX Quarter Final: Maximo Suarez vs. Shane Campbell
  • David Calvo vs. Chad Sugden
  • Damian Garcia vs. Alcorac Caballero
  • Moises Baute vs. Razvan Floria
  • Alejandro Rodriguez vs. Tural Bayrmov
  • Aitor Alonso vs. TBA
