The K-1 World GP 2023 will take place tomorrow morning, Saturday, June 3, at the Yokohama Budokan in Yokohama City, Japan.
33 of the 34 fighters made weight on their first attempt.
Only Korean fighter Kyung Min Han missed weight by 0.6 KG. As a result, both he and his opponent Nakajima Chihiro agreed to the following terms: In the first round, Kyung Min Han starts the fight with a one-point deduction. Secondly, he will be deducted 20% of his purse. Additionally, the rules state that Min Han will be handicapped with 10-ounce instead of 8-ounce gloves, but Nakajima refused this, so both fighters will wear 8-ounce gloves.
The card features three K-1 champions, all of them in non-title bouts against international competition.
The K-1 World GP 2023 will stream on ABEMA at 12:30 PM Japanese time. The stream will most likely be region-locked, meaning international viewers will need a VPN to watch.
