Legendary Kickboxing Promotion K-1 Announces the Launch of the K-1 World Tour
- Updated: May 28, 2013
HONG KONG, May 28, 2013 — K-1 Global is pleased to announce the launch an exciting new series of events, adding to the K-1 name’s already rich history. K-1 Global plans to revolutionize the sport of Kickboxing yet again by introducing an exciting new concept into the world of K-1; the K-1 World Tour. The K-1 World Tour looks to bring the excitement and prestige associated with K-1 events to smaller venues across the world in hopes of discovering the next K-1 World Grand Prix or K-1 World MAX Champion.
The K-1 World Tour is an exciting new show format which is set to introduce the excitement of the K-1 events to as many countries as possible. The K-1 World Tour looks to bring the excitement and quality that K-1 shows are known to smaller, more intimate settings across the globe in markets that have yet to see larger K-1 events. K-1 has historically only crowned champions in two weight classes; 70kg MAX and Heavyweight. Starting this year, K-1 will be expanding to encompass more weight classes, crowning champions in every country across the following weight classes; -63kg, 70kg (MAX), 85kg, 95kg, 95kg+ (Heavyweight).
An important part of the K-1 World Tour is to bring K-1 action to new countries and regions, helping to develop and discover new talent in hopes of finding the next K-1 World Champion! K-1 Global is currently working with promoters and fighters from many countries around the world to bring K-1 action to their hometown. We are searching for partners in countries far and wide to help to bring the action and excitement associated with K-1 events to their country. Promoters looking to bring K-1 to their country can apply through K-1.tv today.
K-1 is also continuing with the K-1 World Qualifying Tour which is currently taking place throughout countries throughout the world. This year alone has seen events in Lithuania, Portugal and Moldova. The next two stops on the K-1 World Qualifying Tour are June 8th in Calgary, Canada and in Vilha Velha, Brazil on June 22nd. The K-1 World Qualifying Tour has showcased some of the best up-and-coming and talent in the regions, mixed in with popular veterans of the sport. With the launch of the K-1 World Tour, K-1 is looking to double down its efforts in finding the next generation of elite Kickboxing stars.
