6/29 K-1 WorldGP Fukuoka - Fight Order

Tuesday 24 June 2008

The card has had some changes. Noticeably, the changes have lead to no reserve fight! This is a very high risk in these K-1 tournaments… The fighters have to go through 3 fights and it’s not unusual to have to call in the reserve in these tournaments. Either way, this should be a very good night of fighting in Fukuoka and I am actually surprised that they have put that many stars on this card (2 title fights in addition to the tournament). If you’re in Fukuoka, this is the place to be on Sunday.

I totally missed that the first opening fight was the reserve fight... Thanks to Fire Fist for correcting me!
