Roqueni

You can't have a week without having some drama, and some drama we do have, as upcoming K-1 World MAX Final 16 participant Abraham Roqueni has publicly made a statement declaring that he's ending his relationship with his manager, Javier Rolo of Street Culture. If Street Culture sounds familiar to you it is because Street Culture worked as the local promoter in Spain for past It's Showtime events and is doing the same duty for the upcoming K-1 World MAX Final 16 in Mallorca. For promoter Javier Rolo this is not his only pressing issue, though, as there have been some issues with recent Enfusion Live events which he helped to promote.

Roqueni has severed his relationship with Rolo and Street Culture, which in turn has forced him to pull out of the K-1 World MAX Final 16. Before the lynch mob comes out, it's hard to see this as a reflection of K-1, really, and instead is an issue with their promotional partner. Some might be surprised at K-1 using a local partner, but it is pretty standard procedure for organizations, as even GLORY uses local promoters (Topuz in Turkey, DiBlasi in Italy, Neglia in New York, etc.). This is a loss for K-1, as Roqueni does have a solid name from his win over Andy Souwer back in 2011, but not a huge loss by any stretch of the imagination.
