K-1 Japan Announces 70kg Tournament

Don't call it K-1 MAX, because K-1 Japan has an upcoming 70kg tournament and it's being called Super Welterweight. Oh yeah, and it's a pretty damned awesome tournament as well. Scheduled for June 18th in the Saitama Super Arena's smaller hall, featuring some recognizable names from the world of 70kg kickboxing with, of course, the K-1 Japan flair.

K-1 Japan has found a niche for themselves with the lighter (sub-70kg) weight classes of late, but their 70kg division has been just as good. That's tough to imagine, especially with 70kg being one of the most competitive and talent-filled in the world. The tournament has been broken down like this thus far; 

Yasuhiro Kido vs Jordan Watson

Hirono Yu vs Sanny Dahlbeck

Hiroki Nakajima vs Chingiz Allazov

Hinata Watanabe vs Jordann Pikeur

Recognizable names from both Japan and internationally, with every fight really awesome in its own way. Yasuhiro Kido against Jordan Watson should be a great fight, Yu against Dahlbeck should be another chance for Dahlbeck to prove to the world that GLORY let him go far too soon, Nakajima against Allazov is perhaps the best fight in the tournament and the return of HINATA to K-1 against the tough Jordann Pikeur.

Enfusion Live #47 Results & Highlight Video

Enfusion Live #47 took place this weekend in Nijmegen, Nederlands with overall some pretty good fights. Keng Superpro Samui lost his belt by controversial decision to Soufiane Kaddouri. Ismael Lazaar got the win this time but again looked very tired and no where near the killer he was last year. In the main event Mohamad Khamal won a decision over Jomthong Chuwattana just by being more busy with his hands, even though Chuwattana landed quite a few kicks on the arms, this is kickboxing rules after all.
