fight/event that got you into k-1

mine would have to be the 2004 k-1 max final, originally watched it pretty much because there was an aussie in it (jwp) he lost to baukaw in the first round but it was an awesome event

Oh man mine was way back. I was 5-6 and I somehow saw the 94 grand prix and my Aerts love began after that. Right after that I started Karate (only thing I could do around where I lived at that age) and then moved on to kickboxing and boxing when I got a little older. I don't remember to much about when I was that young but that grand prix has always stuck with me.

then i watched it from there and on.until we moved to canada which made it a little harder to see the events

I started in like 6th and 7th grade. When I would come home from school they always had kickboxing and K-1 on ESPN. I didn't have any idea who the fighters were but I loved watching it.

I've been watching kickboxing for as long as I can remember because my dad was a huge fan. He used to get these bootleg copies of fights from overseas and I used to love watching those with him.

After I got out of prison the first fight I watched was JLB vs Frye (Shockwave), I always loved JLB and there was no way I was missing that fight. JLB didn't disappoint me, winning by brutal stand up clinic KO. That fight really was the one that got me back into K-1.

I'm not toooo sure, but I remember it had something to do with JLB, back when he had the blonde hair. Then I believe I lost contact, until I picked up on K-1 with Crocop vs. Sapp.
