Things are starting to look up for K-1 fans. The K-1 Global Holdings Limited group has officially taken over the K-1 brand as of February, just before it was announced that former parent company Fighting and Entertainment Group declaredÂ bankruptcy. Now, K-1 has revealed that former K-1 World Max Champion Masato has taken the role of executive producer.
Masato’s participation will have a huge effect on the general public, as he was a well known and loved fighter. He’s also not too hard on the eyes. As executive producer, Masato expressed hisÂ desireÂ toÂ restoreÂ theÂ honor and glory once associated with the brand, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. K-1 is set to kick off again with a huge event on May 27th in Madrid, Spain. The event features super stars like Badr Hari and Mirko Cro-cop, and has the potential to restore the kickboxing promotion’s once sterling reputation.
