Next up in the MAX finalist promo videos: Yuya Yamamoto. Be sure to turn on English subtitles, as he has some great things to say.
Bad news for US fight fans – HDNet will not air the MAX finals until Saturday, October 31 at 11:00 pm EST, almost 1 week after they take place. As their website makes clear, this delayed presentation will be the premiere airing of the show.
Sadly, this kind of move shows that while K-1 gains traction in the US, it is a long way from MMA levels of popularity, and MAX faces an even steeper uphill battle. We’ll have results here before it airs.
Great video of Buakaw training and a reminder of just how vicious he can be.
Giorgio Petrosyan is one of the early favorites for the K-1 World MAX Tournament this year, and if you are wondering why, he has a whole career worth of fights for you to watch. Check out this fight from 2008 against Raffik Bakkouri where he just decimates him. Petrosyan’s opponent, Yuya Yamamoto isn’t known for his crushing power, it looks like he has his hands full.
If you are wondering why Masato has called out Andy Souwer for his possible last opponent, look no further than the World MAX 2007 Finals, where Souwer annihilates the Japanese star’s legs with leg kicks to the point where he could barely walk straight, never mind balance himself to throw a proper strike. I know I’d love to see them tangle one last time.
As promised, here is the first hype video for Dynamite!! Good stuff, as always, from FEG.
