Rumors have begun flying concerning the final 3 participants in the K-1 Grand Prix, as well as some of the Final 16 fights. Current rumors include:
Semmy Schilt v. Daniel Ghita in what has to be seen as a very tough test for Ghita. This fight has been confirmed by Ghita’s manager to Romanian website kombat.ro.
Melvin Manhoef v. Remy Bonjasky. UPDATE: Manhoef has been confirmed as a wild card entrant by It’s Showtime. Odd match here as Bonjasky has easily beaten Manhoef twice before.
Badr Hari v. Zabit Samedov
Peter Aerts v. Alistair Overeem. This one seems to be definitely in the rumor stages at this point as Overeem has not yet been confirmed for the Grand Prix at all.
In addition, it is rumored that one of the remaining wild card slots will go to Hong Man Choi.
We will try to confirm these rumors and keep you updated throughout the day.
