2/23 K-1 World Max -Japan Tournament

Tuesday 13 January 2009

FEG have added some fighters to this event which will be held in Yoyogi 1st Gymnasium.

This should be a good tournament again. Hinata is a very talented fighter making his K-1 debut. The 22 year old went 4-0 in RISE last year, beating HAYATO in the process.

For me, the favorite would be Yasuhiro Kido or Andy Ologun, but it will be a close tournament and anything can happen.

Announced as fighting outside the tournament is Andre Dida. It will be interesting to see how he does. MMA fighters have done very well against K-1 fighters lately, and though Dida might be considered more an K-1 fighter than Kawajiri, it will be interesting to see here. Kozo Takeda will of course be looking to redeem himself, regardless of opponent.

Tournament participants:
Yasuhiro Kido
Andy Ologun
Yuya Yamamoto
Taishin Kohirumaki
Hinata Watanabe

Other Participants:
Yoshihiro Sato
Kozo Takeda
Buakaw Por. Pramuk
Andre "Dida" Amade
Daisuke Uematsu
Shingo Garyu
Hiroyuki Owatari
Kizaemon Saiga
Keiji Ozaki
Yasuhito Shirasu
...and more
