K-1 Japan Announces Tournament For 60KG Title

Following an announcement earlier this week that K-1 Japan had parted ways with the TRY HARD Gym, which in effect cancelled their K’Fiesta.1 main event, K-1 Japan announced a massive change to the March event.

According to a report from Liverkick, the roster is in the midst of a change due to exclusivity of their contracts, and potential competition from RIZIN and the growth of the competing KNOCK OUT Promotion.

And now with the Tiaga vs. Takeru main event for the vacant Super Featherweight Championship cancelled, K-1 has announced a tournament for the vacant title and superfights for March’s event.
