Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

Tune in this Saturday, March 28 for “HDNet Fights Presents: FieLDS K-1 World Grand Prix 2009 Yokohama″ from the Yokohama Arena in Yokohama, Japan. The stacked kickboxing event airs LIVE at 1:00 a.m. ET with a special encore presentation at 9 p.m. ET for all you sleepyheads and chislers who refuse to shell out the few extra clams for a DVR.

That’s Friday night into Saturday if you’re still doing the math.

This is the first event in 2009 of the much anticipated K-1 World Grand Prix. HDNet’s partnership kicked off late last year with the K-1 World Grand Prix Finals and features the best kickboxers in the world. LIVE coverage of this event will include Peter Aerts vs. Errol Zimmerman, Jerome Le Banner vs. Ewerton Teixeira and a four-man, one night tournament for the K-1 Heavyweight Title featuring Melvin Manhoef.

In addition, current Strikeforce heavyweight champion Alistair Overeem will try to shock the world for a second straight time when he clashes with reigning three-time K-1 World Grand Prix champion Remy Bonjasky.

“Demolition Man” upset the boys over at K-1 with a stunning first round knockout over former K-1 heavyweight champion Badr Hari in a K-1 rules match back on New Year’s Eve.

Overeem has been on a frightening tear as of late and a win over Bonjasky could turn the K-1 world on its head.
