Today’s flashback brings us 12 years back in the time when the 18th World Grand Prix K-1 event took place in 2010.
8 of the finest heavyweight kickboxers are going to Tokyo, Japan, in order to participate in the biggest kickboxing event of the year.
Mighty Mo, Peter Aerts, Semmy Schilt, Alistair Overeem, Tyrone Spong, Kyotaro, Gokhan Saki, and Daniel Ghita all made it to the quarterfinals.
The event takes place on December 11 in front of 11 835 fans at “Ariake Coliseum”.
The 1/4-finals are brilliant from top to bottom with the last one being probably the most intriguing. Heavy hitters Alistair Overeem and Tyrone Spong are facing each other for the first and final time in their pro careers.
The hype doesn’t affect them in any negative way and both guys are putting on a show for the ages.
