February has always been a busy month for stand-up sports, and it's no less true now than it was during the Silver Age of K-1. Today in kickboxing, Remy Bonjasky faced Tsuyoshi Nakasako at K-1 Burning 2004 (introduced by a special guest announcer). 

At this point in time Remy had just won his first Grand Prix a few months previously, and was looking to continue his momentum from 2003 into the new year. Nakasako was a Japanese journeyman who had moderate amounts of success in Japan, but was never able to find the win to push himself into the upper echelons of K-1.

This fight is a perfect example of what made Remy Bonjasky a great fighter. Perfect use of range and distance, and a devastating left body-hook, right low-kick combination that found it's mark nearly every time. Nakasako is one tough guy, and he was almost able to weather the future 3-time champion's blistering kicks until the final bell. Almost.
