Today we’re going back to the historic 1999 K-1 World Grand Prix once again. After we showed you the Grand Finale of the tournament, now we’ll be focusing on one of the two semi-finals.
Following two KO wins over Mike Bernardo and Musashi, the young and promising Mirko Filipovic was up against none other than Sam Greco himself. Sam made it to the 1/2-finals after two wins on points against Stefan Leko and Ray Sefo.
The other semi-final between Ernesto Hoost and Jerome Le Banner was a show of its own magnitude also, but everybody knew the Cro Cop – Greco fight was going to be legendary.
And they were right, as the Croatian fighter produced one of the most showstopping performances thanks to his brutal kicks.
