K1 adds kiddies to the mix

You know, I was thinking a few days ago that Japan was being a bit too conservative lately with it’s bookings. No real freakshow matches … the best we’ve gotten in a while was little Minowa Man getting his face smashed by gigantic Min Soo “Mr. Shark” Kim.

Fortunately, today has really paid off: it doesn’t get more freaktastic than booking the world’s #1 fighter against the textbook definition of a genetic freak. And now K1 Dynamite is adding it’s own freaky shit in the form of a 4-boy fight tournament at their NYE show. No, not men … boys!

Two new fights have been announced for FieLDS K-1 Premium 2007 Dynamite!! at new years eve. It will be a under 18 4-man tournament with 15 year old rising star HIROYA as one of the four competitors.

HIROYA has fought four times this year in K-1 and won them all. Will he end 2007 with a 6-0 record?

60 kg: HIROYA (15) vs. Tsukasa Fuji (15)
60 kg: Kenji Kubo (18) vs. Yudai (16)
60 kg: HIROYA/Fuji vs. Kubo/Yudai

And yeah, I’m sure it’s par for the course in Japan to have kids beat the shit out of eachother in the ring. But that doesn’t make it any less strange to me.
