12/31 K-1 Dynamite - Fights added

Sunday 9 December 2007

3 fights have been added to the K-1 Dynamite NYE card.

One of them is a surprise, as Joachim Hansen was expected to be on the Yarennoka card. Instead he will return to HERO's and face Kazuyuki Miyata, this seems to indicate that Hansen has signed with HEROs and we are likely to see more of him in Japan in the future. Miyata is a former olympic wrestler, and was very impressive against Harvey Harra in his last fight, where as Hansen suffered from ring rustiness in his loss to Eiji Mitsuoka.

The excentric Minowaman will face Zulu, in a fight I hope to see a realy good show from Minowaman. He should be a clear favorite in this fight.

Also added to the card, former WBF titleholder, Yusuke Nishijima will face Melvin Manhoef in what I expect to be a very entertaining fight. I would however expect this to be a short fight as I think Manhoef is a far surperior all-round fighter to Nishijima.
