K-1, the largest and most prestigious kickboxing promotion in the world, is no longer owned by Fighting and Entertainment Group and has been sold to Japanese real estate firm Barbizon Co,. Ltd.

Promotional group FEG and president Sadaharu Tanikawa have operated K-1 since September 2003 but the promotion has fallen upon hard times recently due to the rapid decline in the the sport's popularity in Japan and the questionable entertainment-centric direction that Tanikawa has steered K-1.

What was the entertainment focus?

Bullshit match ups and freakshow fights?

No I thought the GP was pretty good, I was thinking of the Dynamite card this year.

I actually like the freakshow stuff. But I think K-1 needs to let the clinch happen a little more.
