The Return Of The King! Zimmerman Challenges

Four new fights for the April 3rd K-1 World GP 2010 In Yokohama event were announced today.

In a K-1 Super Heavyweight title fight, champion Semmy Schilt will take on challenger Errol Zimmerman.

In a superfight, two of the few who have beaten Semmy Schilt in stand-up competition will battle as 2009 World GP runner-up Badr Hari faces the returning red scorpion, Alexey Ignashov.

MMA fighter Alistair Overeem returns to the K-1 ring to fight on Dzevad Poturak of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Familiar faces Jerome Le Banner and Ruslan Karaev will also battle.

FEG producer Tanigawa said at the press conference that fans wanted Overeem to Schilt’s challenger but they didn’t put him in a title fight since MMA will be his main focus this year.
