Great new released from one of the 2 biggest ‘K-1′ events in the world.
For those who have loved their K-1 and have followed the roller-coaster ride from that is being a K-1 fan (not the promotion but the sport itself that has sprung from the original promotions name)
K-1 (FEG) officially closed shop and ended what many fans had held close to there heart for so many years. With organisation then scrambling to see who would take the mantle as the lead Kickboxing / K-1 promotion in the world.
After a mad dash and exchanging of not only fighters but also alliances and employers (something resembling the likes of a Game Of Thrones) we finally ended up with 3 key promotions that the fans have latched on to.
K-1 Rising – It’s Showtime and Golden Glory world series
K-1 rising and It’s showtime have put on great shows – and seemingly have a strong alliance with each other. Golden Glory World Series (GGWS) on the other hand is running solo and also doing a great job.
GGWS has signed fighters such as Peter Aerts, Semmy Schilt, Gokhan Saki, Albert Kraus, Le Banner, Patrosyan, Bonjasky, Kharitonov, Sato, Pinca, Kem Sitsongpeenong and a slew of other talent.
This is a hell of a roster, so we can expect to see some great fights.
Whats even better is Golden Glory World Series has announced a return to the heart and homeland of K-1 (no sorry not Holland) straight to the heart of Japan …. Tokyo.
TOKYO, Japan (July 23, 2012) –The world’s best heavyweights will head to Tokyo to fight it out on a GGWS promotional event.
We can expect to see Schilt, Saki, possibly Aerts, Bonjasky and Kharitonov as well as more heavyweights that will likely be named soon.
Looking forward to seeing how the Japanese fans take to GGWS – i hope we will see a Saitama style production and crowd, with a great atmosphere and fans who feel culturally connected to K-1.
