AMSTERDAM AND MOSCOW, Jan. 20, 2012 /CNW/ - Golden Glory has partnered
with Total Sports Asia to form a powerful team to revive Kickboxing and
resuscitate the K-1 rules scene.
The new partnership backed by a group of investors is planning for new
tournaments with total prize money of US$ 1 million. This would include
a 70Kg and 85kg category (USD 300K each) and a Heavyweight Category
which would fight for USD 400K.
Putting up one million dollars for these three tournaments as Prize
money will spring new life into the sport of Kickboxing. The
partnership believes that 2012 will be the rebirth for stand up
striking combat and the sport will take its deserved position alongside
the ever growing sport of MMA.
The partnership recently signed and paid the outstanding money to key
fighters including Gokhan Saki, Semmy Schilt, Erroll Zimmermann, Sergei
Kharitonov and several others. As expected many other fighters have
shown interest to sign exclusive deals in hopes to get reimbursed for
their FEG outstanding payments as well as having future fights with
this new powerhouse Promotion.
Bas Boon, MD of Golden Glory said: "I'm sure Aerts, Petrosyan, Buakaw
Por Muak, Jaideep, Texiera and others will soon follow and sign
agreements so that Kickboxing can become an international force again
and resurrect the history and glory of K-1." (http://www.goldenglory.com)
The upcoming March 23rd Glory World Series event in Moscow will be
televised in over 80 countries and is already shaping up to be a
classic, with the return of 4 time K-1 Champion Schilt in action for
the first time in over a year. Also Zimmerman taking on legend Jerome
Le Banner and a battle of Iron fists is on the card when USA's Mark
Miller takes on Russia's Sergei Kharitonov. Also in action are Robin
van Roosmalen, Igor Jurkovic and MMA bouts involving feature fighters
