A quick piece of news that should come as no surprise - the Krush show scheduled for this weekend has been postponed due to the tragedy in Japan.
This weekend's Krush show was going to feature the semi-finals and finals of the 55, 60, and 63kg tournaments. Those fights will now be moved back to April 30. No word yet on what this means for the 70kg tournament, which was originally slated to begin on that April 30 date - I imagine they will just bump that entire tournament back one show as well. One other note regarding this - 55kg tournament participant Ryuya Kusakabe is currently scheduled to compete at the Shootboxing event on April 23, so we'll have to see how those two dates play together. Kusakabe is the Shootboxing champion.
In similar news, last weekend's Shootboxing Young Cesar's Cup was cancelled. It will be rescheduled, but no date has yet been mentioned.
While this Krush event is one I am really looking forward to, I'm very glad to see it delayed. These fighters don't need to be worrying about entertaining us in the face of such a horrible tragedy at home, and even thinking about them fighting this weekend seems so small and petty. It's been said before, but it can never be said enough - all our thoughts and best wishes to everyone in Japan during this extremely difficult time.
