K-1 World MAX Final Four in Azerbaijan Results

This past weekend in the beautiful city of Baku, Azerbaijan K-1 descended upon the city with four of the world's top 70kg fighters for the K-1 World MAX Final Four. It was a lively crowd packing the arena watching a blend of some of the world's best Kickboxing stars with some of the finest local talent that Azerbaijan had to offer in a night full of exciting fights. By the time the final bell had rung all of the fans left the arena with a lot to talk about.

The two feature bouts of the evening were the K-1 World MAX Final Four bouts, where two-time K-1 World MAX Champion Buakaw Banchamek faced off against Korea's Sung-Hyun Lee and Canada's Shane Campbell fought Germany's Enriko Kehl. Everything was on the line for these four fighters as they were fully aware that a win tonight puts them into the Finals of one of the most prestigious tournaments in the sport of Kickboxing and a loss means going home empty-handed.

In the first of the two bouts, Buakaw Banchamek showed once again that he is truly a force to be reckoned with in the K-1 MAX division as he utilized strong, clean striking techniques against Korea's young Sung-Hyun Lee. Lee was confident heading into this fight with Buakaw, but when it came time to face the Thai legend he found Buakaw's defenses to be frustrating and his attacks to hurt a lot more than he had imagined. When the final bell rang Banchamek was able to walk away with yet another appearance in the K-1 World MAX Finals awaiting him.
The second bout saw a very technical, breathtaking battle between two of the best K-1 MAX prospects in Shane Campbell and Enriko Kehl. For both men this was the biggest opportunity of their young careers, but not their first time given a big chance, so they were both composed as they stood in the center of the ring and exchanged kicks and punches for all three rounds. Kehl took an early lead but Campbell never lost a step and was neck-and-neck with Kehl until round three where after a series of unintentional low blows head referee Atsushi Onari was forced to issue a yellow card to Campbell. Both men were able to walk away with their heads held high after brilliant performances, but only Enriko Kehl will move on to the K-1 World MAX Finals to face off against his rival, Buakaw Banchamek.

Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
