K-1 Japan Holding -57.5kg Tournament For New World Title in November
Fans of K-1 Japan know better than to mess with Takeru, the K-1 -55kg Champion, a truly violent force in kickboxing. Yet, it appears that K-1 is moving the goalpost a bit for Takeru’s brand of violence by adjusting the division’s weight to -57.5kg, where they will crown a new champion. This goes down on November 5th at Yoyogi National Stadium and will be an 8-man tournament.
