I love kickboxing. This should be a fun tournament too. It'll be interesting to see if Cro Cop can make a deep run here.

I'm guessing you mean Semmy, but he and most of the big name guys no longer fight for K-1, they fight for Glory now.

There are just so many "what if's" with this tournament. What will Cro Cop look like against tougher comp? Is Hari in fighting shape after only being out of jail since mid January? Considering all of this, I think Gerges should be the favorite going in.

On a side note, I wanna say that I find it sad that the K-1 GP has gone from the most prestegious kickboxing tourney in the world to a mere blip on the combat sports radar. I love Glory and I know they have damn near all of the best kickboxers in the world, but I miss the pageantry and excitement that was K-1 of years ago.

They have 2 fights where one opponent is TBA? With 2 days left? I suppose they can grab someone off the streets.

yes i mean Semmy, but i call him Sammy, cuz sometimes when i watch him fight he punches like a chick at times and what not, lol..its just me, even thou Schilt is my top 3 kickboxers of all times..but to ur Glory thing..Glory and K1 lend out their fighter..they bring other fighters from different org. and mixes it with their own, but they do host the biggest kickboxing tourney there is..this was one of the reason why they got sued, not being able to pay the company and their fighters..Showtime has been around for almost as long as K1..Showtime has product plently of great fighters for K1..there actually a few fighter K1 does actually own..mainly the asian fighters, besides Buakaw...

GLORY has only been around since May of last year, and they bought out Showtime. I don't think they've lent out anyone to K-1 since they've been around and the new owners took over K-1. K-1 is basically starting from scratch since FEG was more or less bankrupt, and GLORY moved in as the new biggest show in town when it comes to kickboxing. The one thing K-1 had going for it was the deal with Spike TV, but that's since been nixed and there's talk of GLORY stepping in and getting a contract with them now. K-1 is not the same thing as it was even just a couple years ago, your facts are outdated at this point. I think you meant Golden Glory's fight series when you said they "lend" fighters earlier. This is a different animal.

Jesus, by all appearances this is Badr's tourney to lose. Gerges is really good but this tourney looks substantially different with the rise of GLORY.

It would be Hari's tourney to win if we knew what kind of shape he's in, but that's a big question mark right now. I'm hoping CC has a good showing, but I'm not holding my breath.
