    His most recent fight was for TITAN NEOS back in September of 2016. One last side fact on him, he's been blogging fairly openly about backstage stuff in the glory days of K-1. Apparently back in Kancho Ishii's day, he was getting $100K per night and in addition Kancho was giving him multiple-grand "allowances" on a weekly basis.

    Of course, prob best not to dwell on how Kancho was getting that money.

    This is going down tomorrow with two small changes. Suen Tak Chuen replaces Leung Pakyu in the tournament. Also a SF will go down between Koichi Pettas and K-Jee

    My predictions
    - Ishida beats Bongiovanni, Takei beats Orden, Whelan beats Terado, Chuen beats Kubo
    - Final will be Takei vs. Whelan and I guess I'll go with Whelan based on experience and size advantage
    - SFs: HIROYA beats Yamato and both champions win

    Also, new poster for the June event is up. This one features the title fight between Wei Rui and Gonnapar Weerasakrek

    Gotta love K-1 and their stupid clinching rule, breaking actions every 10 seconds

    Takei vs Antonio Olden (The Spanish) has to be the worst reffed K-1 fight I have seen this year by far.
    Takei kept rabbit punching the Spanish but got no warning and got rewarded with a knockdown without really scoring
    a clean shot. Meanwhile, Antonio kept getting warned for even slightest infraction (suck to be a muay thai guy in this organization).

    Who da faq is that Japanese referee? Dude should go work for Yi Long in China.

    The elbow was egregious, but neither of those were KDs.

    I think Whelan decapitates Terado soon.

    Yeah that elbow was really bad.

    Terado is putting up a great fight here.

    I can't imagine Kubo Kenji wins. He was a fantastic talent, but its been years since his last kickboxing fight.

    Btw, if he looks familiar its because he's the brother of Kubo Yuta.

    All Japanese semi-final it is. Watching this tournament after the last one is pretty hard, the level of fighters is so different. Hopefully K-1 will start importing higher level fighters in the 55 kg division.

    Hiroya fight IQ strikes again...Nice KO by Yamato.

    If Kaew wins today, K-1 can just match them up.
