Giorgio Petrosyan is Awesome

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.

K-1 Announces K-1 WORLD MAX 2009 Finals

The bigger news was Kozo Takeda announced his retirement. Takeda, a finalist in the 2003 MAX tournament has had a legendary career but never seemed to reach the top of the weight class in K-1. Known for his devastatingly hard low kicks and most recently getting murdered in the ring by Tatsuya Kawajiri, the 36 year old will have his last hurrah against Albert Kraus in a superfight.
