The official weigh-ins for K-1 WORLD MAX took place today.

K-1 WORLD MAX returns with a massive fight card – 50 fighters will compete in K-1's possibly longest event yet. The first round of the K-1 World Max 2024 Final 16 will serve as the centerpiece. Additionally, two world titles will be contested, and multiple K-1 versus RISE fights will continue the feud from last weekend's RISE ELDORADO 2024.

Late replacement Romano Bakboord was the only fighter to miss the mark. He weighed in at 70.95 kilograms, 950 grams over the required limit. He will be fined 20% of his purse and starts the fight with a 1-point deduction. Additionally, he has to wear 10-ounce gloves instead of 8-ounce gloves.

The prelims tomorrow starting at 12:00 AM ET, including the K-1 vs. RISE fights that will be live and FREE on Triller TV, followed by the PPV which features two world title fights plus the seven K-1 MAX Final 16 fights.
