No smooth sailing for the return of K-1.

Only hours away from the supposed return of K-1 to global prominence, international fans are once again left wondering where to watch K-1 ReBIRTH. After the big announcement that DAZN was carrying the event was made, only a few selected countries were able to access the event on the popular streaming platform. Yesterday, FITE TV announced that they would offer the event as a pay-per-view globally. 


To the surprise of many, the event is no longer accessible through either DAZN or FITE TV. Beyond Kickboxing has contacted both streaming platforms plus the promotion, but has received no answer by the time of publishing. Fans & international media can only speculate on whether K-1 has dropped the ball or if the issue lies with the streaming services. 

The promotion has yet to make an official statement about the situation.

For local fans, ABEMA TV will stream the event for free at 11:30 AM JST.
