$1 Million Dollar Prize for Glory World Series Fight Events 2012
AMSTERDAM and MOSCOW, January 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Golden Glory has partnered with Total Sports Asia to form a powerful team to revive
Kickboxing and resuscitate the K-1 rules scene.
The new partnership backed by a group of investors is planning for new tournaments
with total prize money of US$ 1 million. This would include a 70Kg and 85kg category (USD
300K each) and a Heavyweight Category which would fight for USD 400K.
Putting up one million dollars for these three tournaments as Prize money will spring
new life into the sport of Kickboxing. The partnership believes that 2012 will be the
rebirth for stand up striking combat and the sport will take its deserved position
alongside the ever growing sport of MMA.
The partnership recently signed and paid the outstanding money to key fighters
including Gokhan Saki, Semmy Schilt, Erroll Zimmermann, Sergei Kharitonov and several
others. As expected many other fighters have shown interest to sign exclusive deals in
hopes to get reimbursed for their FEG outstanding payments as well as having future fights
with this new powerhouse Promotion.
Bas Boon, MD of Golden Glory said: “I’m sure Aerts, Petrosyan, Buakaw Por Muak,
Jaideep, Texiera and others will soon follow and sign agreements so that Kickboxing can
become an international force again and resurrect the history and glory of K-1.”
The upcoming March 23rd Glory World Series event in Moscow will be televised in over
80 countries and is already shaping up to be a classic, with the return of 4 time K-1
Champion Schilt in action for the first time in over a year. Also Zimmerman taking on
legend Jerome Le Banner and a battle of Iron fists is on the card when USA’s Mark Miller
takes on Russia’s Sergei Kharitonov. Also in action are Robin van Roosmalen, Igor Jurkovic
and MMA bouts involving feature fighters from many different countries including Dennis
Stojnic (Bosnia), Dion Staring (Holland), Tommy Depret (Belgium).
