Petrosyan Captures His Second K-1 Crown
Giorgio Petrosyan once again proved that he is the best kickboxer in the world, as he won an unprecedented second consecutive K-1 WORLD MAX GP at the Ryogoku Kokugikan.
Petrosyan and Sato came to the K-1 World Max in a roughly equal condition. But it was clear in the onset that Petrosyan has no equal in K-1. Sato admitted that he sustained more punches to the head in his quarter-final bout. His previous opponents saw nothing but defense, while Petrosyan saw gaping holes and easily picked Sato apart for three rounds. The defending champion was drawn into a slugfest, but it turns out to be one-sided. Sato collapsed to his knees and was rattled for the full round, until the final bell rang.
With Giorgio Petrosyan’s victory, he becomes the first fighter to defend a K-1 Max belt ever. And with that, he is arguably the most dominant fighter in kickboxing today.View Article Source »
