K1 World Max 70kg and Japan 63kg results discussion

I didn't see a thread on this so I decided to make one since it deserves it.

So Nagashima looks like shit again after looking godlike in the 70kg Japan tournament. Either he didn't train or he is a complete headcase who is going to be schizophrenic like this his entire career. If he shows up for the tournament like that he is getting destroyed.

Sato is a crisper and more technical kickboxing monster than ever before. I'm going to predict he beats Petrosyan and wins the World Max 70kg this year.

As for the 63kg tournament finals.



Early fight of the year candidate. As a Kubo fan it was kind of heartbreaking but Yamato is a fairly likable guy and he did KO Saiga which puts him in my good graces. Kubo's Brazilian kick KO was ridiculous and one of the better knockouts this year.

I had recorded it and just finished watching it tonight. Some really good fights. Except for the reserve match, that was a bit ridiculous. I wish K1 was bigger in the states. It really is a very entertaining sport.

It's too bad though it was a one night tournament, I felt that some of the fighters lost because they were tired by the second and third fights. Seemed like an endurance test. I think that if Yuta had a full tank, he definitely would of won because he was clearly the best fighter there

Sato is in a stacked division and i just dont see a way he comes close to winning the MAX title.

The most stacked division but I don't see anyone aside from Sato or Buakaw having any kind of shot at beating Petrosyan.

its been awhile since ive watched but last i remember Sato was around Gago Drago in terms of the MAX peaking order.

Should be

Giorgio Petrosyan
Andy Souwer
Albert Kraus
Buakaw Por. Pramuk
Artur Kyshenko

and perhaps Nieky but anyone after that is canon fodder to the top 5

Souwer and Kraus are done as top guys and Kyshenko would get torn to pieces by Petrosyan. I just think Sato is a nightmare matchup for Petrosyan stylistically and he won't be able to dictate distance and come in without being tagged like he does with everyone else. The gap between the elite and Sato was never really huge in my opinion either he would lose a lot to them but by close decisions and I think he has closed it recently. It all depends on the draw though for whoever wins it all and whether or not someone gets completely robbed like Buakaw was last year.

Never count Souwer out.
He isn't done...comm'on. Kraus may have lived his glory days, but Souwer can win the tournament again imo.
Kyschenko needs a bit more power in order to stand and bang with Petrosyan. Sato has the skill to stand and bang with Petrosyan, but when he does that, he usually lefts openings in his guard and he gets tagged.
I give Buakaw the best chances of beating Petrosyan atm.

BELIEVE!
